You requested it and we made it a top priority. Are you ready for it?
So what does this great news mean exactly? For every Rocketbook notebook scan you send to an email address, we’re now able to transcribe your handwritten notes right to your email. That’s right - your handwritten notes will now turn into text! Rocketbook = Magic.
*Please note that OCR email transcription does not work with Rocketbook Beacons whiteboard scans.

A couple of notes...
Transcriptions are optimized for letters and numbers, not shapes or diagrams. So, if you’re graphing exponential curves, drawing diagrams for a room, or sketching a friend’s portrait, you’ll see a lot of gibberish. We’re working on ways to clean it up, but for now, we’d suggest transcribing just letters and numbers.
Also, if you’re sending multiple scans through to email, each scan will be marked as a separate page titled “Page 1, Page 2, etc.”
And finally, we currently don’t support email transcription when sending scans to email in GIF format. Sorry about that! We hope to add that feature soon!
Now that you’ve enabled transcription for your scans, get ready for your world to change! Learn more about adding your email as a destination within the app.
