Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we're going to show you how to copy scanned text and send it in a message when using the Microsoft Lumia 535.
To start, turn the phone on by pressing the power button, which is located on the right-hand side of the phone
Once activated, swipe the lock screen up to enter the home screen
We now need to scan some text in order to show you how to copy it and paste it into a message
To do that, we need to use Lumia Camera
This application and this tile may exist on your home screen.
If not, you can find it by swiping left and entering the app menu
Find it and press the tile to enter it
Once loaded, we need to press the menu button, which is the three dots on the bottom right-hand corner of the screen
Once pressed, a menu will pop up and you will then select "lenses"
Now we need to use Big Vision so press the Big Vision tile
The camera is now activated
It is trying to scan for Quick Response, which is also known as QR codes.
When we place text in front of it, the scan text button will become active and we will be able to scan some text
The scan text button has become activated now and we can press it.
The camera recognized that text has appeared and has prepared to scan it in order to copy it
As you can see, a selection of white rectangles has encased every word in the text.
What we want to do is copy this to the phone
To do that, press the menu button again.
You will see the "copy all" option
Press that option.
All of the selected text has now been copied
If we want to return to the home screen, which we do, we press the home screen button at the bottom.
Now we need to send this text in a message
So press the message tile.
Yours may be located in a different position than mine
Find it and press it to enter the message application.
We want to send a new message
So we are going to press the "+" sign at the bottom of the screen.
If we want to reply to a message, we could also maybe find it in one of our previous messages as well, but we need to create a new message
Here we have the recipients at the top and at the bottom we have the area in which we can place the text.
What we want to do now is paste the text that we have copied
When there is something to paste, the paste icon appears. You can see it here under the text box. It is the icon that looks like a clipboard with the white file.
If we press this we are going to paste the last thing we copied
So press that. Now we can see we have pasted all the text we scanned into the text box.
This is a very useful function/application/tool that allows us to copy text very quickly using the Big Vision application, and then send it to our friend or our colleague
This concludes our tutorial on how to copy scanned text and then send it quickly when using a Microsoft Lumia 535. If you have any questions or comments about this video, then please leave them in the comments section below. You've been watching VisiHow. Goodbye!
