Microsoft Lens (formerly Microsoft Office Lens) trims, enhances, and makes pictures of whiteboards and documents readable. 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. You don’t need to jot down notes, rely on blurry images, or worry about misplacing anything. It’s great for capturing sketches, drawings and equations too, and even images without text.
Choose a mode
As soon as you open Office Lens, you can choose your mode — Photo, Document, Whiteboard, or Business Card — so Office Lens can make the image look its best.
What is Office Lens
This is a good mode to use if you’re taking pictures of scenery or people. Document
This mode will help you get the most out of small words and details on a page. It’s great for things like posters, fliers, or restaurant menus. Whiteboard
Use this mode to capture notes. Office Lens will adjust images so the background isn’t too bright and the words are easier to read. It’s an ideal setting for blackboards and sketches, too. Business Card
This mode will help you extract contact information and save it into your phone’s contacts and into OneNote. This feature currently works best with business cards in English, German, Spanish, and Simplified Chinese.
