    OCR


    I checked my posts and don't see OCR so I think this is fresh.
    I have tried to use OneNote as OCR for the longest time with no success. I have used YouTube videos all of which are different and do not work for me. I have read that One Note's OCR no longer works.
    I have Windows 1803 with Office Home and Student 2010.
    So before I ask for help with a process, does it still function ?

    I use OCR in Word to translate scanned .pdf into text quite a lot if that is what you mean. It works well - just right click on .pdf and open with Word. It muddles a few words and struggles with graphics but is generally good.

    I don't have OneNote program (only the version from the Store) so I don't know how (or even if) it works there. Looking quickly in the OneNote options (store version remember) I could see no way of doing it.

    I do not use PDF what I was referring to was taking any text document and scanning it so that with OCR involved I can then edit that document I don't know if this is what you are referring to
    Rather than typing several pages I was hoping to scan some pages that need work and had read that one note was a freeway of employing OCR I did find a program called free OCR which works really well perhaps someone familiar with OneNote can jump in and thank you for your help

    It is what I was referring to - I scan printed documents to pdf format (save them in that format from my scanner) and then edit them in Word.

    But yes - let's wait for OneNote person as I don't know it alas.

    There are plenty of free online sites that offer that service- just search.
    E.g.
    Free Online OCR - Convert JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIFF, PDF, DjVu to Text

    (Sorry, never used Onenote).

    Yes it does function, have the same version of MS Office Home & Student 2010, use OneNote 2010.
    Just tried it to make sure.

    Insert Picture/Image (TIF) in to OneNote > Select > Right click > Copy Text from Picture.
    Then Paste in to say Word 2010.

    I tried to paste to Word but as you can see I never get the option that has been suggested many times in many ways.
    When I copy a file with snip or other means and paste to OneNote this is the type of right click option I get. So when pasting to word, the OCR machine did not work and editing cannot take place.

    Sorry, the right click options did not show up and they were the important part..
