- Microsoft Lens (formerly “Office Lens”) is a great way to capture information from images, documents, whiteboards, business cards, signs, handwritten memos, or anything else containing text that you want to save and make readable.
- Microsoft Lens is great for capturing sketches, drawings and equations too — even images without text! When capturing images, Microsoft Lens gets rid of shadows and odd angles, so your final captures are easier to see.
- You can use Microsoft Lens to convert images to PDF, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel files, digitize printed or handwritten text, and save to OneNote, OneDrive, or your local device.
