Microsoft Office Lens Pricing Reviews

Pros

  • I have used and fell in love with this software that I find it difficult to pinpoint a thing I least like about it. Generally, the software has been wonderful and a time saver and stress reliever.Chikadibia E.Read the full review
  • It's also a recommended software for taking random shots whose quality are at par with those of other top applications out in the market, or maybe better.Jim Paul B.Read the full review
  • I use it to scan images with texts that I want to keep saved (newsletters, documents, etc.). The repositioning of the photo is great and helps to make all text readable.Jamesson T.Read the full review

This valuable app can help a lot with quick scans that also demands quality nowadays. I liked the fact that you can use it in your smartphone and in our computer without any problem! This program is endeed a great resource at the work or for any other personal activities involving the digitisation of physical documents.

Pros
Easy to use and takes a low amount of storage space.

Cons
Since it is a free program from Microsoft, I would like to see it being advertised more often by the company for Office and Windows users that are unaware about the software!

To be Honest MS Office Lens is really saving time by its text extracting tools and scanning feature.

Pros
following features really impressed me; 1. by taking picture of any written form you can easily extract the text and simply copy it to MS words and save the time of typing 2. one can scan the documents and adds pages by scaning others by using camera and then convert it to desired format either PDF, DOCX, WORD, EXCEL 3. one can extract the tables as well

Cons
only thing that i least like about MS Office Lens is, some of its features are to purchased which are bit expensive

Most Well Known Word Processor Service: Microsoft Office Lens

Used occasionally for 2+ years
Reviewed 2020-11-09
Review Source: Capterra

Microsoft Office Lens was a requirement to use in college as it has Word Processor ability abs it is the only Word Processor service in the college computer lab. I used this service multiple times to create book reports and to write college English papers.

Pros
Microsoft Office Lens has a wide range of features to assist a writer. The word processor is very detailed and so much more easy than type writers, without delete buttons or cloud storage providers. The software lets you easily choose a template and format your creation. Within your creation you can choose font style, font size, font color and even change in mid paragraph within the same document or Word creation.

Cons
The cost of Microsoft Lens is the only negative aspect. It is only used if purchased usually within Microsoft Office Suite which contains multiple computer programs within.

Microsoft Lens is a very application for day-to-day scanning of documents, it adjusts the focus and tries to get the best scan possible using mobile. Overall it is a very useful application.

Pros
The biggest plus is it is free of cost. One can easily scan documents with the help of a mobile phone and collate the information on Office lens. It has support to share the files across

Cons
Editing options are a bit slow and not up to the mark. It is a bit slow compared to Camscanner.
