The long-awaited OCR (optical character recognition) function is now available on the PocketBook InkPad Eo e-note. After receiving and accepting the new firmware version 1.2.0, users can convert any handwritten notes into text documents or PDF files quickly and conveniently.

How to convert handwritten notes to text?

  1. Open the Notes app and create a new handwritten note or select an existing note.
  2. Click the text recognition icon at the top of the screen.
  3. The OCR window will open at the bottom of the screen, and the handwriting recognition process will begin.

  5. In a few seconds, your handwriting will be converted into plain text.

What can you do with recognized and converted text?

  • Copy recognized text for pasting into another document or sharing.
