    There was I reading the article thinking it was relevant.... and didn't get it. Then I noticed the extracted text from the article... need to have a look at a couple of my camera-lens documents!

    So...
    The E-class, despite being significantly longer and wider, only provides less than 5% larger cabin space?

    great feature btw, but as you can see there, its not working very reliably

    I noticed it when I uploaded an image for Microsoft to view. It only had a few typos, so not bad.

    Maybe it's a nice feature but I still don't know what it does. Maybe a line or two explanation might help this old boy figure it out.

    John,

    Look at the 2 circles with the arrow between them....one circle is an online article and the other is extracted text via OCR (the 3rd Circle) :)

    Apparently not, I just tried it . Search finds normal text files but not embedded text.

    But it can be copied into OneNote and then it would be searchable....
