Aug. 7th, 2020 Camscanner Blog,User Stories
In a day in age, whether you are sitting in a boardroom or a classroom for that matter, and the presenter passes around handouts of a PowerPoint that they are about to share with you, the immediate reaction is… “when can I have the digital copy”. So often as the meeting or class wraps up, they always say “I’ll send you the PPT later”. Full well knowing half the time you may never receive it and you are stuck with a paper hand out for reference.
In an age that is so prudent on being digital, yet still stuck in the past in some instances, there is CamScanner, an application that so easily helps bridge these two maligned eras of traditionalism and modernism, from paper to PDF. With CamScanner Android PPT function one can simply open up the application and follow along with the presentation, simply taking snap shots of slides the user feels relevant with the ability to quickly add notes right within that app, and then move on to the next relevant slide. The iOS version of CamScanner can be utilized similarly through using the Single or Batch functions but are unable to add notes at this time.
The functionality of the Android PPT feature does not stop there though! After completion of the presentation you or left with many options to enhance your digital copy before exporting it to a PDF. You may use the Mark function to underline or highlight key points on a slide, or the OCR function in the premium app to pull out text from a single slide that you wish to share, or adjust and share.
Once all the necessary notes, marks and edits have been made to each slide, it’s as simple as using the PDF function to convert it to a digital presentation, which then can be shared with colleagues, classmates or for your personal reference at a later time.
It’s the additional little features that often go unnoticed in applications, but once utilized are difficult to give up when they become part of your personal habits, and the PPT function is definitely one of them.
