Writing on paper and using Photo Translate apps is still not quick enough for me seriously I have the attention span much less than a goldfish, that saying would be true on me. Do you ever find yourself being completely and utterly so LAZY that even the quickest way you found a to do something still end up being very slow. That Happen to me seeing as I found the Photo Translate method still quite slow for me. I when ahead and try to find another way to do handwriting even quicker.
What you need is your iPhone or iPad. For iPad make sure you enable the Multitasking Gesture if you don’t want to be banging your head against the wall or on the edge of throwing your iPad against the wall. (That is the no return action, the only thing you can do is cry your heart out for your injured Ipad.) Also, you can use another device if the apps work on there. and one last thing a touch pen would help a lot.
work for IPhone and IPad. You write on the device and once you finish you can easily just select the writing and convert it into text. The only thing you need to watch out for is on the iPhone and iPad there is a close up box, a zoom in the box and that need to be the smallest it would go. So that when it is converted from the handwriting to text it will fill the full page. If you don’t do it, once you get it to Word it would just fit half of the page and you going to have to sit there going back line by line to get it to a full sentence. (I made that mistake so learn from me, I wanted to bang my head on something.) On iPad The only fault would be that it is big and sometimes it hard to write on it if you’re not on a table or just in bed writing (who doesn’t do that) but luckily the armrest function works very well so you can rest your arm writing HOORAY! Overall it a good app and it sink very well from iPhone to iPad I use this the most. It is £5.99 but so totally worth it and there is are the function that you can do with the app but I don’t really use it much.
My Script Memo: this app only works on iPad, sorry iPhone. It has an area where you can rest your hand and just write, it might make your risk a bit tired because you are moving from section to section like writing on paper. There is no zoom in function on this app. However that doesn’t have any effect on the converting part, you can write as big as you want and it would recognize that you’re writing a sentence. This app is free. (Yeah, we all love free stuff.)
Write Pad: work on Ipad and Iphone it will automatically change your handwriting in the text as you write, this is not my favourite app. As I have to wait for it to convert the writing, it’s really distracting me from my writing flow so it’s not really good for me. However, I am only a one person opinion a lot of you might like this app because of the fact that it turns the writing straight into text, you might sometimes need to train it to recognize your writing style. It cost £3.99.
Another app I found and is good but I haven’t tried as am totally happy with GoodNote:
Note plus: £3.99
Now you can’t say you can’t sit down and write, no more excuses. Go my little birdie, go and fly free for your dream.
