OCR cell input
Expose a quick & ready method to begin inputting text into current active cell from an OCR scan from the camera. There would ideally be a way to optionally have the scan jump to the next column, next row, or no jump, after confirming good read.
An example scenario: you have been tasked with taking inventory of all the computers in your office, including serial numbers. You create a new spreadsheet on your mobile device. Click in the first row and make a "header" row with labels "office number", "serial number", "item type" and "model number". Next, you walk up to an office, tap on the first data cell (column a, row 2) then press the "OCR Acquire" button (this new feature), then aim camera at the room number sign on the door, click capture button. You are now prompted to confirm the OCR text extraction looks good by tapping checkmark button. That text is entered into cell, and the Excel automatically "tab"s over to next cell. Now repeat tapping OCR input again, but aiming camera at the serial number sticker on the computer, then type in the item type normally, tab, and lastly OCR input again, this time the model number sticker had lots of extraneous text, so you have to exclude that from the acquisition, and then confirm, and then the last cell is filled. Now just tap on the beginning of the next row, head down to the next office and repeat the whole process.
