Ribbon Hero, the Office add-in that makes learning to use Microsoft Office software a game complete with points, achievements and even Facebook integration, is now supporting OneNote. Users of either OneNote 2007 or OneNote 2010 can play Ribbon Hero to learn how to use OneNote by competing in the following challenges:
- Converting handwriting to text
- Copying text from pictures
- Playing audio
- Using tags to create powerful to-do lists
This isn’t the only new feature to arrive in this new version of the Ribbon Hero software – it also now offers an easier setup process, too. No longer will you need to install any additional components (specifically VSTO) or use elevated, Admin privileges for the install. This is great news for corporate users who probably don’t want to have to ask I.T. to install the game for them, even if it is “work-related.”
A third new feature is the Ribbon Hero launcher which lets you start playing the game right from the Windows Start Menu. The launcher also keeps track of your scores across all the supported apps – Word, Excel, PowerPoint and now, OneNote.
