Please add “Ink to Text” to OneNote for iPad!
Please add “Ink to Text” to the mobile version of OneNote for iPad! As an Office 365 subscriber, that’s the one and only reason I would ever use this app. People take handwritten notes on Tablets – not on desktop computers. Having the option to convert handwriting to text only on your desktop version and not on the mobile version makes no sense.

Please add "Ink to Text" on the iPad. version of OneNote.
Bitte fügen Sie unbedingt diese Funktion ein. Auch für die deutsche Sprache und auch für Applenutzer! Vielen Dank!

Please do this! Virtual teaching is not easy, and for those of us that have been using this app for a long time and now would like to be able to convert our teaching notes to legible text, this is very necessary! Please add this functionality!

How is this still not a thing? I saw similar comments from 4 years ago, and came to check back on the status. It should be a higher priority. Thanks!

I would be okay not having it on the iPad IF it was available on the Mac, but it's not. So, I have NO way of transforming my handwriting to text.
It's possible to convert ink to text on the surface. I think that's the major reason.

Completely disappointed by the fact that iPad version of the OneNote app does not have Ink to text conversion feature. There are many other applications which do this very well on the iPad but not the OneNote app.
Would really appreciate a Microsoft response for the reason of why is the feature is available in the desktop version and not in the iPad app?
What's the point of having it on the desktop version where the only way to use it is with a mouse or trackpad? Legible Handwriting is practically impossible this way, nor is it efficient.
Have tried to convert handwriting made in the iPad version to text using the desktop version but the button stays grayed out unless my writing is done in the desktop version.
The only way this feature is effective is somewhere a stylus can be used. Maybe it's available on a Surface tablet but excluding iPad users will significantly decrease OneNote usage.
Frustrated because it's the one thing keeping OneNote from being okay but incomplete to being the king of productivity apps.
Another vote for this. What the **** is MS thinking not having this feature on IPad... most people that use iPad for note taking, use them with a pen... not be able to convert handwritten text in OneNote makes it useless in iPad..
Ink to Text is a deal breaker and should absolutely be a standard feature across all devices ((iphone, iPad AND Macbooks - where I also could not find the function)
Its the one big thing that makes any note taking (& I do lots) useful outside of pen and paper.
As an office 365 user, I have to use non MS note taking tools and then import into the MS environment through and in various suboptimal forms.
Yet again, this is Microsoft making life impossible for those who actually see the benefit in working inside the 365 environment, and yet can't because of silly restrictions on key functionality on Apple devices.
I complete agree. This is one of the main attractions of using OneNote and I agree that nearly all of my handwritten notes are taken on my iPad. It makes no sense to have the ink to text on the desktop version but not on the iPad app.
