Geoff the Duck BS: off-line Handwriting - Android ??????? (13) RE: BS: off-line Handwriting - Android ??????? 01 Oct 14

This ought to be listed as TECH not BS.

I installed the Myscript programme on my android pad (That's the place the little robot critter lives) and gave it a try last night.
It certainly has a good attempt at deciphering letters I write, and even manages to correctly translate some of my joined-up scrawl into typed words.
If you can only write half of a long word, it allows you to join the next bit on to the existing word.
It also brings up suggestions for the word you are writing, and sometimes you can click on these to correct errors. The suggestions are about as useful as ones the Google Keyboard Autocorrect comes up with (i.e. sometimes good, sometimes dreadful).

I need to use it a bit more before deciding if it is more useful for what I need compared with the on screen keyboard.

On a phone screen, the input area may be a it small.
