The Discussion

  • User profile image

    Hi guys,

    I'm puzzled about the discussion of the Trivia Question in this video, quote:

    True or False?
    The OneNote Windows 8 App will convert images with text or handwriting to editable text

    At the end of the video, Jeremy Chapman and Michael Atalla answer this question with a firm yes, even stating that they proved the dual claim.

    Now, it's true that OneNote Windows 8 app supports OCR. It was unquestionably demonstrated by Michael in the video. Yet, I'm still to discover handwriting recognition in the OneNote Windows 8 app. Am I badly missing something or a glitch on your behalf? Was this a feature that perhaps was planned for release when this video was initially recorded in March 2014? Cross-platform feature disparities such as this one are causing a lot of questions among OneNote users, so please, do enlighten us.
