In view of our last post about the handwriting recognition improvements in Windows 7 you might be wondering how good windows handwriting recognition is…
As an experiment, I’ll tell you to the story of my handwriting got so bad in digital ink with Windows Vista and I’ll show you the recognition results below:
And here is the recognised text version…
I was born in South Australia but grew
up in Victoria. So I started learning
to write at primary school in Victoria. The Victorian Education Department at
the time decided to change the
writing style taught from printing to cursive script.
In grade four, we moved from
Victoria to South Australia where kids
had always been taught cursive. When
I turned up, they decided to
painting… And so, my
handwriting became a hacked up version of print and cursive…
One error… not bad!
