Office Lens: Convert Images To Word Docs and Read Whiteboard Images

April 17, 2015 — by Adeel Qayum0


If you’re a student or an employee who has to write down a lot of lengthy notes in limited time then Office Lens by Microsoft Corporation is an app for you. It’s a free app that lets users take pictures of documents, content written on boards, etc. and convert them to editable MS Word, PDF, and PowerPoint files. It’s a very useful app that will make you feel that you have a tiny scanner instead of an actual iPhone in your pocket.

I’ve always have to be prepared with a notebook and pen in hand when it comes to taking notes in class or a meeting. I have tried taking pictures of notes directly from a black or whiteboard but they don’t come out very clean, and I still have to type or write down the content later on from the image I’ve captured. Office Lens has been created to cater to all the requirements needed in order to properly take pictures from boards, documents, even business cards, and then converting all the text into Word, PDF files, or PowerPoint presentations.
