Microsoft is adding a major feature to OneNote Online, the company today announced in a blog post. OneNote’s drawing features are soon coming to a browser near you — allowing you to sketch things on OneOne Online. Microsoft didn’t provide many details on what features are available under the Draw tab on OneNote Online when compared to the Windows 10 app. But from the looks of things, the Draw tab on OneNote Online is a lot simpler than the Windows 10 app. For instance, you can only draw with a pen and a highlighter, but you can’t use any fancy effects which is understandable considering this only runs on a browser. The drawing features on OneNote Online is still going to be quite useful for basic note-taking as you can see in the above screenshot.

In addition to the inking features, Microsoft is also bringing the Accessibility Checker to its OneNote app on Windows 10. The Accessibility Checker essentially lets you ensure that your notes are accessible by everyone — for example, some people with visual impairments may not be able to view your notes but the Accessibility Checker will make sure that this doesn’t happen.

OneNote Online’s Draw feature is rolling out to users right now, but it doesn’t seem to be available to all users at the moment. As for the Accessibility Checker in Windows 10, Microsoft says it’s now available to all users.
