    Handwritten-to-Text App?

    Discussion in 'Software' started by Lili.A.Pemberton, Sep 16, 2021.

    So I recently bought a graphic/drawing tablet and I noticed that (on Windows 10) when you click on the start button and you enter search you can actually write in on the graphics tablet what you want to search and it converts it to text for you. Is there anything like that but for writing? I know there's apps like Bamboo Paper where you can directly write on the tablet, but it doesn't really transform it to, like, Times New Roman font.

    So yeah, is there anything close to that?

    Nebo does that. It's available for all platforms.

    Yep, this is what I use. It's awesome. Amazingly accurate.

    So I finally got around to checking it out and apparently, they're available on all platforms but not compatible with graphic tablets. From their website:

    "Note that Wacom Pen tablets (Intuos) or Pen computers (Mobile Studio Pro or Cintiq or Cintiq pro) are NOT compatible With Nebo.

    Note that graphics tablets are NOT compatible with Nebo"

    So it looks cool, but I don't think I'll be able to use it, which is disappointing, but I'm glad I looked it up thoroughly before buying it.

    Someone suggested Microsoft One Note, which I also tried, but its handwritten-to-text capabilities are kind of disappointing. Eh. Maybe someday someone will develop a graphic tablet handwritten-to-text app I can use.

    Handwriting has become a fascination. I bought a fountain pen, then another. I live a digital life and type at a reasonably good clip. Somehow, handwriting has gotten important again.

    Fountain pens are interesting devices even if they don't support spell-check. Modern offerings are better for writing than the best ballpoint/gel/rollerball ever produced. Amazing things. Don't judge them by the $1 cartridge Sheaffer you might remember from 1965. There's a reason the politicians and lawyers who make your life miserable still use fountain pens.

    Fight back. $30 will get a fountain pen that will work as well as a $3,000 Montblanc. Viva la revoluciĆ³n!
