I have a hand injury and it makes typing really difficult. But holding a pen is ok.
So I remembered seeing a few years ago a software which converts handwriting into text. I went back to that shop but they could not help.
Which is the best software, tablet and stylus or computer to buy?
What is important?
I have an old laptop running win 8. I have a Kindle HD and an IPad.
But if it means upgrading eyc thats not an issue. I just need to be able to write and convert to text. I use Open Office.
As FE has said, OCR should be able to read anything you have written.
My point was that you said, "But holding a pen is ok", I read between the lines that "ok" meant acceptable, rather than as it was before the injury.
Dragon is said to be first class, speech recognition software, but very expensive. I got to use a friend's copy while I had a wrist injury many years ago, I assume it has advanced since then, it was superb. not as good as having a secretary who corrected my mistakes before she typed a copy, but pretty good none the less.
Windows 10 and Google have their own Free versions, and there are others around.
Remember, if you use an online version, the provider gets to access (and possibly, own) anything that you write. Read the T&Cs very carefully
