Convert Ink to Math in PowerPoint

Office provides a large selection of equations and symbols but it can often be difficult to find the desired symbol and add it quickly into your work. Though PowerPoint has long contained the Math Input Control, we felt that the experience would be benefited by a UI and UX upgrade that kept you in your natural workflow on the canvas. We also wanted to leverage AI improvements to the math handwriting recognition model that would save you time and produce better results.
