We've recently discussed the note-taking benefits of OneNote, but what if you want to edit or annotate text from an image of a business card, or the printed handout someone gave you?  You can, with the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) capabilities of OneNote on Windows.

 In OneNote 2013 and later for Windows, OneNote can recognize and create editable text from any image of words you place into a OneNote document.

Start by bringing an image into your OneNote. Once it's there, right-click the image and select "Copy Text from Picture", and OneNote will read all the text content from your image and place it onto your clipboard, ready to be pasted into your Notebook or anywhere else. With OneNote OCR, you can start organizing and editing your important printed paper documents along with your digital notes.
