Convert handwritten ink to typed text please!
I think, the simplest to have your handwritten notes, converted to text is to use build in Notes app on iPad (I personally have iPad Air 4th gen with iOS 14.4 and Apple Pencil 2nd gen).
You have two choices to handwrite: using Scribble options (handwriting converts to text in a spot) or just handwrite your entire memo and in the end covert it to text, by selecting all and copying it as text. After this just past it in OneNote, which will take you 3s.
After this, you can modify your small errors thru your MacBook or PC OneNote app, and there you go, MoM from you meeting is done.
Obviously it would be perfect to have this option straight away in OneNote on iPad, but it’s super simple solution, while we are waiting for MS team to add feature in, hopefully next update.
Why is there no "ink to text" in either iPads nor Macs? :((((
please add ink to text on onenote for ipads. i promise i will buy office 364 if do so i can move my notes to my android and windows devices. Until then, i do not aee the point ( i already own a Office on my computer).
Add support for scribble to OneNote for ipadOS. I want to take notes that automatically convert to text.

After updating to ipados 14 writing in onenote became some-what buggy( little bit) on my ipad 7th gen ..as OS tries to convert every hand writting to text but our App can’t allow that so at the end it feels like everything thing written with my pen is processed by os as a text and IpadOs kind of knows what I just wrote somewhere in algorithms (proof— if You even use eraser it starts as a scribble lines which is black line and fading as it you are written forward in only while 1st stroke...but than it app understands that it is eraser and start to do its function of rubbing... same is true for other colours pen) but our loved OneNote for which people (>2000 users )are demanding this basic need since 2016 can’t allow us to do so as we made a crime by not purchasing Microsoft product don’t allow our handwriting to be considered as a text and they stay as some only human readable scribble.
There can be 2 ways to treat this
1st and easy just shut down this ability of Os to convert scribble to text and make OneNote pages independent of Os and pencil UI.
2nd and hard
put a new button(named xyz right near pencil /draw with finger button) to turn off or on for scribble support which use ipad’s ability ( algorithm/ AI) to convert letter to text and use
it as a base for Onenote text input “A” ( near lasso tool) so you can skip writing thousands line of codes and make use of someone’s effort of coding for our App.
As a doctor I need your support for better technology so I can read more write more understand more heal more..
Thank you so much for working on it

Please implement which will make oneNote much more useful.

All apps in ios 14 allows this and one note is not ready for this change. Pen utilisation is key for a good note application

Please add support for Apple’s scribble feature introduced in iPadOS14.
So... Ipad OS 14 is released with native handwriting recognition and STILL it doesn't work in OneNote. It works in the 'submit feedback' section of onenote, but not on the actual pages I want to write on. It's obvious that MS have intentionally crippled this app to try and sell more windows tablets. Poor move, MS

This is clearly Microsofts strategy to drive consumers to their products. The high powered researchers and marketing analyst know this is a MAJOR feature desired by tablet users. Obviously, if they give us what we want (without paying for it) they indirectly lose business. IPads have always been ahead in the tablet world. In their research, enough consumers have switched to Microsoft tablets specifically to have this handwriting to text feature. Bottom line - Microsoft sales analyst make the decisions. Although annoying and irritating, this shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. (As I hand peck this comment using my Apple Pencil, my blood pressure rises... ;)
Ink to Text is available for windows users on their computers, and I believe it is also available on android tablets. It seems unfair that this feature is available for some users but not all, especially when we all pay the same for Office 365! My computer is a Mac, and I also use an iPad - ink to text is not available on either of these devices yet so I cannot use it at all! If I had a different brand I would be able to. This is not fair, and makes life as a university student extremely difficult! Please fix this, and provide everyone the same service! It has been a long time
Please implement! College student in online classes this year here, and would LOVE to see this feature made available for all of my note taking. Would be super helpful
When will this be implemented?
It feels as though Microsoft are not listening to their users
Come on Microsoft, if you want to have the best note taking app in the world, you just need to add this to have it.

One note is useless without being able to convert handwriting to text, have now had to purchase Nebo, I pay enough for office 365 every year so should not have to pay for another programme to do this
Please implement asap.
This is a NECESSITY. Please implement!!
