Microsoft Office Lens

Microsoft Lens (formerly Office Lens) trims, enhances, and makes pictures of whiteboards and documents readable.

You can use Microsoft Lens to convert images to editable PDF, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel files, digitize printed or handwritten text, and save to OneNote, OneDrive, or your local device. You can even import images that are already on your device using Gallery.
