Apple Patent Shows Handwriting Recognition Tech For The iPad

Apple had recently filed a patent for the iPad – a handwriting recognition system that allows users to scribble words and sentences onto the screen, which will then turn it into script for typing.

The technology is not easy to master and put into practical use as there are limitations to accuracy. But as per the patent, even small improvements with the tech will go a long way for Apple. The basic purpose of this technology is to go with Chinese language, where invloves stroke-based handwriting. For English users, the tech may not be that useful and we will only know about it when the patent gets implemented on the iPad.
