Copy text from pictures with OCR in OneNote Online

OneNote supports Optical Character Recognition (OCR), a tool that lets you copy text from pictures or scanned images and paste it into your notes for editing.

Copying text from pictures is not possible in OneNote Online, but you can do it with the OneNote desktop app. For detailed steps for how to do this in OneNote 2016, see Extract text from pictures and file printouts.
