Microsoft Introduces AI-Powered Handwriting Enhancement in OneNote

Microsoft has announced an innovative feature for OneNote aimed at visually enhancing handwritten notes using Artificial Intelligence to make them more readable. This new function, which does not simply recognize characters but actually enhances the handwriting itself, marks a significant step towards optimizing the digital note-taking experience.

Revealed in a recent blog post by Microsoft, the feature transforms handwritten texts to appear more orderly and coherent, without altering the users’ personal handwriting style. This is especially useful for individuals who frequently take handwritten notes during meetings, classes, or training sessions and need to quickly tidy them up before reviewing or sharing.

To use the new handwriting straightening function, users simply need to open an existing notebook in OneNote or add handwritten notes to a page using a digital pen. The desired text segments can then be easily selected with the lasso tool or by tapping on a text line and choosing the “Straighten” option.

Currently, the function only supports languages written in the Latin alphabet and is not capable of straightening individual words, formulas, tables, or underlines. At present, this feature is only available to Beta Channel users who are running OneNote on Windows Version 2404 (Build 17530.20000) or higher. There is no version available yet for OneNote for Windows 10.

This innovative feature represents Microsoft’s ongoing commitment to enhancing user experience and efficiency in educational and business settings. With this development, Microsoft sets new standards in digital note-taking and underscores the significance of AI in creating user-friendly technologies.
