    Question Backwards Google?

    Google is going in the wrong direction!

    They now have an app that will convert hand-written text to digital text. Would that they would create an app that goes the other way!

    I wonder how many of us would fail to get it to spell check properly based on the neatness of our handwriting? I'm sure I could put my hand up and say it might not work for me.

    You might be surprised. I've found their voice to text to be amazingly accurate. They tend to have better than average algorithms overall.

    The US Postal Service uses such software, converting handwritten addresses to digital, eventually to printed barcodes.

    A few years ago I used an online program that converted digital Roman text to Cyrillic longhand.
