A Note about Evernote and Text Recognition

You can use Evernote’s page camera feature to scan handwritten notes into your Evernote account, for text recognition of handwritten notes.  This feature only works with images saved in the JPG format (images saved in PNG or PDF format are not supported if you are using the free service).

If you prefer using Moleskine notebooks the Evernote camera feature may be one way to go back and forth between paper and digital note-taking and provide a single location to digitally file and tag digital and paper notes.
