Pen to Print Online OCR

A person scans a receipt with their phone.

We’ve looked at a few different Optical Character Recognition (OCR) options in the past, but today we are going to look at an OCR app that takes an especially unique approach to this process.

Pen to Print OCR transforms scanned handwritten notes into digital text for seamless editing, searching, and storage across all digital platforms. This includes handwritten notes, including letters, school notes, diaries, meeting minutes, and more. This app is ideal for individuals who prefer taking notes using pen and paper but also want to take advantage of the convenience of digital text.

The app is available for iOS, Android, and PC, and users can convert and download the first 10 pages for free here. This trial is not only a great way to test the app as well as OCR technology in general but to any students or teachers who need a couple pages converted quickly, Pen to Print’s free offering couldn’t be a better value.

This tool can convert various styles of Latin-based handwriting to text, including block letters, cursive, and regular script, making it ideal for students in high school, college, or university, as it serves as a great solution for study notes, class notes, and homework. Or, for working professionals, the app could be very handy for sharing meeting minutes, protocols, and other handwritten documents with multiple participants.

Pen to Print is a fully functional OCR app that also does a great job of supporting universal design, as it supports individuals who prefer or require pen to paper writing due to their learning differences. Not to mention some note-takers simply remember their notes better when taking them down manually. Or let’s not forget those individuals who never learned to (or simply cannot) type efficiently, and for them, pen to paper is also the fastest approach to notetaking. Whatever the case may be, this app allows those individuals to take notes in the way that works best for them while still being able to take advantage of all the benefits of digital text.

Pen to Print offers premium packs for purchase. These packs start at about $12.99 CDN for 100 pages of OCR, with no time limit attached. This upgrade also allows you to edit, save, copy, email, add to Notes, or share on messaging apps, and more. To learn more about Pen to Print Premium, click here (new window).
