e-Pens Mobile Notes Digital Pen - Handwriting Conversion Sample Page

Our Score:


Here we have a photo of the original text written on lined paper using the digital pen with biro nib.

This digital image is how the e-Pens pen 'interprets' what I have written.

And this is the result after Vision Objects MyScript Notes has changed the handwritten sample to computer text.

"... a handy if rather hand-leading tutorial-video e-Pens provides online."

Actually, this seems really good. The amount of these we have had returned because the customer can't even figure out how to put the pen together is quite high, to say the least!

That's surprising, considering the process is quite simple and explained well in the quickstart guide. But of course a detailed video tutorial is a good idea with any product.

"As long as you write in a straight line (lined paper is recommended) and with a modicum of clarity..." If we write that neatly most of the time, are we the sort of people that will be using an electonic pen? The handwriting on the sample is very tidy and easily readable anyway - like handwriting class samples. Any chance of testing it for scribble?

I'm with Lon B above, what do you think it would make of writing that is as bad as your GP's?!

@Lon Bailey:

Sorry, that's just my normal handwriting. As mentioned in the review we tried the e-Pens with a colleague who has less tidy, more elaborate handwriting, and MyScript Notes had no problems with it at all.

@dev: I'm afraid no-one in the office has handwriting as unreadable as the average GP's ;)
