MyScript (http://myscript.com) has announced the availability of the latest Software Development Kit, SDK8, for use by software developers and OEMs [original equipment manufacturers] alike.
Created within MyScript Labs, it provides building blocks to develop Multimodal Input (MMI) solutions that combine superimposed handwriting together with a versatile keyboard input facility. Users can now independently write character, cursive or words on top of each other, all without changing device input modes. A predictive virtual keyboard is also provided enabling consistent user feedback in all input modes.
The new SDK8 introduces more flexibility to MyScript’s superimposed handwriting style; it now supports not only characters written on top of each other but part of words, or complete words and manages auto-spacing between words. Users benefit from consistent text in all input modes, providing an improved content creation experience, says Thomas Penin, product manager, MyScript. This is of special benefit to users writing on small screens where the room you have to write on is quite limited or in automotive applications where the user is not always able to view the vehicle’s input screen, he adds.
MyScript technology combines digital ink management with searching of handwritten text, as well as the accurate recognition of complex mathematical equations, geometric shapes and music notation. MyScript solutions are available on all leading desktop and mobile operating systems, including macOS, iOS, Windows, Linux, Tizen and Android.
