For every Rocketbook notebook scan you send to an email address, Evernote, OneNote, or Google Drive account, we’re now able to transcribe your handwritten notes directly into your files. That’s right - your handwritten notes will now turn into text! Rocketbook = Magic.
*Please note that OCR transcription does not work with Rocketbook Beacons whiteboard scans.
How to Enable Transcription
First, please make sure you have the latest version of the Rocketbook iOS or Android app downloaded to your mobile device or tablet. Then, follow these steps:
- Step 1: Open the Rocketbook App (If you're using an Android device, tap the menu icon)

- Step 5: Choose how you'd like to receive your transcription
Evernote, OneNote, and Google Drive Transcription
If you're sending your file to Evernote, OneNote, or Google Drive, you can send as one file (a JPEG attached with a transcription of your text), or two files (one file with your PDF or JPEG scan and one file with your text)
If you're sending your scans to an email destination, you can have your transcription attached to your email as a .TXT file or embedded within the body of your email
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.
In its current form, our OCR software isn't able to recognize formats and line breaks as they appear in the planning and calendar pages within the Fusion and Panda Planner, and the graph paper pattern in the Rocketbook Matrix causes some issues of its own. For now, we've disabled transcriptions functionality on those pages types.
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.
