In their quest to improve the handwriting recognition of their software products, Evernote has opened up the collection of handwriting samples to the general public.
I submitted my own a few days ago, and got my acceptance and the key to download my free software this afternoon!
Now that I know it’s all legit and they are still turning this around… I thought I’d share it with others.
So, if you want to get your own handwriting software package (you have your option of two), read on…
Go to the Evernote.com site: http://www.evernote.com/pub/training/
Follow the directions and write the sentences, scan or take a good digital image (like I did with my cool little camera) and send it to the company. If you are accepted, they will send you a link like they sent me.
Now, don’t let lousy handwriting deter you… after all, they accepted mine! (and it’s like chicken-scratches… made by a drunken chicken… you get the idea)
