Ever want to write in your OneNote notebook on the SmartBoard and have it converted to text? Normally using a SmartBoard the ink is added as a layer over the notebook and is not actually a part of it. However in one quick step you can write on your notebook and have it converted to text. Simply click the Draw tab and then select Draw With Touch. After doing so select the color pen you would like and then write whatever your heart desires. When finished select the Inf to Text button and there you go. To see how it went for me check this out.
The OCR in OneNote is quite good and chances are you won’t have to correct all that much. This is great when you are doing activities where the kids are writing on the board and you want to have their work recorded. It is also great if you like to grade student work at the SmartBoard (yes, some folks do do this).
Note: my non-touch netbook does not have this feature, but my PC which is connected to a touch device, namely the aforementioned SmartBoard, does.
As I alluded to earlier, I made a video of this process, enjoy!
Have a great day,
