Office Lens trims, enhances, and makes pictures of whiteboards and docs readable. You can use Office Lens to convert images to PDF, Word and PowerPoint files, and you can even save images to OneNote or OneDrive.

Office Lens is like having a scanner in your pocket. Like magic, it will digitize notes from whiteboards or blackboards. Always find important documents or business cards. Sketch your ideas and snap a picture for later. Don’t lose receipts or stray sticky notes again!

By installing the app, you agree to these terms and conditions:

– Capture and crop a picture of a whiteboard or blackboard and share your meeting notes with co-workers.
– Make digital copies of your printed documents, business cards, or posters and trim them precisely.
– Printed and handwritten text will be automatically recognized (using OCR), so you can search for words in images and then copy and edit them.

"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."

Sir Richard Branson


Free Tier - can be accessed freely
The tool is easy-to-use although the walk-through tutorial upon installing it is of great help tooFirst of all, the editing options are limited in this app
The buttons' functions are simple yet so powerfulThere should be more editing features on the pictures you scanned
Helps alot in scanning the file by keeping the orginal features which helps to read the files uploaded by the students clearlyThe interface can be a bit confusing to use
Document quality is at the best level that can be done with a phoneSometimes, I feel as though I needed to search for the tool I was looking for for quite a bit of time
This is the most important feature for me.Does not OCR in handwritten text

Microsoft Lens reviews

By far the best document scanner I have found. Simple to use, has many nice features, and plenty of amazing filters. There is always at least one filter that works perfectly with the document I'm scanning, including pencil and whiteboards. And it isn't limited to Microsoft Onedrive, you can save it as an image or a pdf to your phone.

So far, I've only used Lens to crop documents, but it works well. What I like is how it takes the irregular shape & squares it up. It is a little tedious to manually find the 4 corners. (I didn't see an auto function - that would be great. Or, if it would zoom-in on the corner.) I also like that it gives several options for the output format.

- Michael Rodgers

It's a nice app, especially if you have an outlook account. When you save it, it saves directly to your account after you log in once, and you can also choose what to save it as (pdf, jpeg, etc. . .). The only thing is, if you have bad lighting, sometimes the scanner won't pick up the edges of your paper. Which is a given for any scanner, but if you're in a rush it can cost you time. It doesn't have pop up ads like some other scanners I've used so that's also a plus.
