It’s not the first handwriting-recognition solution we’ve seen for the Android platform, but Vision Objects’ MyScript system still finds itself with little company. MyScript recognizes all manner of individual characters, hand-printed and cursive handwriting in around sixteen different languages, and is happy with you using a finger rather than a stylus to trace out letters on your Android handset’s screen.
As the video demo, below, shows, you don’t have to wait for individual letters or even words to be recognized before moving on. Instead, the text-entry box effectively scrolls across, creating more space to write; you can squeeze a couple of words on-screen at a time.
Vision Objects provide handwriting-recognition engines to a number of partner software companies, so it’s possible we could see an Android version of MyScript using the technology from another developer. No word on when that might happen, though.
