We all are starting to realize how awesome Microsoft’s One Note product is.
It works great for so so many tasks, projects, and just keeping yourself organized. I just discovered a feature that helped me out in a bind that is just down right amazing. I can’t give enough praise for this product out of all the different products in the productivity suite from Microsoft this one is over looked I think and needs to get on everyone’s radar. I have used this before during meetings, when working on and organizing thoughts for large projects, and so many other tasks. One of the great features provided by this product is its ability to accept images, files and documents in the document itself.
I used this feature to my advantage recently, by importing screen captures of text that the program I was working in wouldn’t let me export. I found that I could copy the text straight out of the image, and that One Note also has a pretty decent OCR function built in. Now it wasn’t perfect, it did have trouble identifying all the characters correctly, for instance V, Y or 5, S. But even by sight, I could see it being difficult in the font that the program displayed, that if I wasn’t looking closely I could have made the same mistake. So now I can add OCR to the list of amazing features that really useful product brings to the table, if you haven’t checked it out lately and it is was installed when Office was installed please give it a click. It is kind of like a transformer; more than meets the eye.
