Handwritten Notes with OCR

Handwritten Notes with OCR

I realize that DB can now search your images, as well as your text, provided that you have the proper plan. However, even though you can search images, I have been told that it cannot search handrwitten notes. Please include this feature

When advertising that it can capture white boards really means nothing if I cannot search the content. Especially when you take into consideration that I cannot add tags (hint: request yes: added vote) nor can I add notes or comments to it (that can be searched)

Would really love to be able to have this feature. Since this request needs votes in order to be considered by the dev team please consider adding your vote if interested in this option

Handwritten note ocr search support is what makes Evernote amazing .  It is why I pay for Evernote .  Wish Dropbox had it

Can't convert from Evernote to Paper for the same reason. Would love to move everything over to Dropbox, but OCR on notes is critical.

I would LOVE to drop Evernote and migrate everything over to Dropbox rather than continuing to straddle the two. Handwriting OCR and the ability to use OCR on any document rather than just ones scanned with Dropbox Scan keep me chained to Evernote.
