New York, April 17: Google has designed a new app to test your on-screen penmanship. Called Google Handwriting Input, the app allows the users to ‘write’ on a smartphone or tablet screen. It automatically interprets letters from 82 languages and transforms them into standard digital text. The users can use their fingers as well to write. Developed by the company’s research team, Handwriting Input can identify both cursive and print handwriting, and accepts emojis, reported CNET. “Using handwriting as an input method can allow for tural and intuitive input method for text entry which complements typing and speech input methods,” Google’s research team wrote in a blog post recently. Google’s handwriting app is not entirely new though. Windows Jourl, an app built into Microsoft’s operating system, similarly allows users to input their handwriting. The app then interprets each letter and provides a standard digital text version. But Google Handwriting Input supports both on-device processing of handwriting and a cloud-based version. (IANS)
