Microsoft has released a new beta version of its Office app for the iPad that supports Scribble, the handwriting-to-text feature of the Apple Pencil. When you use this feature to insert or edit text in a Word document, PowerPoint presentation, or Excel spreadsheet, your handwriting will be turned into typed text.
For any iPad that supports the first or second-generation Apple Pencil, including any iPad Pro, the third-generation iPad Air and newer, the fifth-generation iPad mini and newer, and the sixth-generation iPad and newer, Scribble was included in iPadOS 14. In February 2021, the iPad will be able to use Microsoft’s unified Office app, which includes Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. The app is also available for the iPhone.
The Scribble feature may be used in Office App version 2.64 by pressing the Scribble Pen button under the Draw tab after the option has been enabled in Settings Apple Pencil. Members of the Office Insider programme can test the feature right now via TestFlight, and in the upcoming weeks, all users will probably be able to download the update from the App Store.
