“I usually don't comment on these blogs, but this app is phenomenal. My son has dyslexia and we purchase an Intel reader. It was $600 and did a marginal job at taking a pic and reading a passage back. My son hated the device. With Office lens he can snap the picture it transfers to One Note and he highlights the image which brings up a menu. The menu has a Copy Text from image command. (This is the OCR part I believe people are messing. He can paste the text right next to the original image and have OneNote read the passage back. Very simple and he likes it and it enhances his comprehension.
It might be nice to include in the surface or tablets so you only have to use one device,,, in the case of a child at school. Having on the phone is great for me at work and personally. Anytime I get a doc now I just scan and toss. I love One Note and pretty much use it on an every day basis.”
