I cannot seem to be able to use One Note to perform OCR . I tried OCR Free and it is OK but requires a lot of time to edit and format.
I watch YouTube videos but each is different and none work for me.
Could you please help me with this as I need to scan a document and use OCR with it. I read that Windows 10 does have OCR that works.

It seems to say it works with something that has been printed or with a picture. I guess this does not apply to a scanned document which I was looking for.

If it's scanned to a jpg file onenote ocr should be able to get the text from it.

I scan to desktop as JPG then open OneNote. Next I insert the document to OneNote but I never see the right click options on the videos.
I think once I get that step I can paste it to Word as I have the 2019 version.
Which right click option am I looking for and is there only one?
