It’s been a while since I last wrote about writing. Here I am again, and I’ve found a new tool to make it even easier to get my writing online. As you know, I like actual handwriting, using a pen on paper. I then realized that tablets allowed me to write with a stylus, getting unlimited room to put down you thoughts. This is great, but it still has the drawback of being script on a page. It’s not searchable, people can’t read the scrawl… What I really want is handwriting recognition so I don’t need to re-enter my work.
Since iOS 8 this is now a possibility. I’ve found a handwriting recognition keyboard called MyScript Stylus. There are no letters to tap – the keyboard is replaced with an area where you can write or print. It’s beautiful.
I said I’d write more in the future, but I’m not making any more promises This sure does combine the best of both worlds though, and it might be easier to get writing.
