Handwriting recognition improvement
Last Updated 5 years ago


The handwriting recognition technology integrated in a Script&Go application poorly understands user marks and certain words are not recognised.


Scrip&Go applications use the Windows recognition motor, which is based on the main language of the exploitation system. Windows has to learn to recognise your handwriting.


  • Target specific recognition errors :
    • Specific characters or words : allows character recognition correction of a word or addition of words from a dictionary.
    • Characters with similar forms ; allows correction of similarly formed characters.
  • Teach your handwriting to the recognition system : allow handwriting recognition to be improved through the provision of examples.
