Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to copy scanned text and send it in an email from Outlook.com when using a Microsoft Lumia 535.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button on the right-hand side of the phone
Swipe the lock screen up to enter the Home Screen
First, we need to enter the Lumia Camera application
Mine is located on the Home screen.
Yours may be located in a different position, or you may need to swipe across from right to left to enter the App menu and scroll to find the Lumia Camera application
When you find it, press it to open the application
As soon as the camera has loaded, we will press the menu icon, which is the ellipsis, or three dots, at the bottom right corner of the screen.
At the top of the menu that appears, press lenses
From the set of tiles that appear, select Bing Vision by pressing it
This is what we need to scan text. There is an image of an eye on the tile.
Place the text you want to scan in front of the camera
When you have it in the position that you want, press the scan text button on the bottom left.
When the application is finished scanning, white rectangles will appear around each word, telling you that the process is done
It captures and encases all of the words in order to recognize them.
Now, we need to copy them
To do this, first press the ellipsis at the bottom right corner to bring up the menu again.
Now the words copy all will appear at the bottom left of the screen
Press that to copy the text.
Now that the text is copied, we are ready to move on to the next step
Let's say you want to send this text to a friend in an email or to a colleague. We can press the Windows button to return to the Home screen.
We are looking for the Outlook tile
Mine is pinned to the Home screen. If yours is not, you may need to find the application using the App menu, as we demonstrated before when looking for Lumia Camera. Tap on Outlook to open it.
To create a new message, tap on the plus sign at the bottom of the screen
Now, we have the opportunity to paste the text we just copied
Tap in the body of the message, just below the subject line, to position your cursor in the place where you want to paste the text.
The next step is to press the paste button
This is a clipboard icon that appears just above the keyboard. This icon will only appear when there is something to paste.
As soon as you press the paste icon, the text should appear in the body of your email
The email is ready to be sent
All you need to do is enter the email address of the person you are sending to and type a subject if you desire. This very useful function enables you to send text to people, and it saves you a lot of time. Instead of having to type out pages and pages, you can just copy and paste it quickly and efficiently. This concludes our tutorial on how copy scanned text and paste it to send in an email from Outlook.com.
