Motorola Inc’s Lexicus Corp, the Palo Alto, California-based handwriting recognition software developer, has announced Lexicus QuickPrint, a handwriting recognition package for General Magic Inc’s Magic Cap environment. The company said QuickPrint turns handwritten notes into typed text quickly and accurately. The software is based on Lexicus’s Windows for Pen operating system, which uses a neural network to recognise handwriting. The software is also claimed to correct spelling and recognise difficult to read handwriting at a speed of 12 characters per second using a 25,000-word built-in dictionary (CI No 2,554). The company reckons the system can be trained to recognise an individual’s handwriting in 15 minutes. In addition to Motorola’s Envoy communicator Personal Digital Assistant, QuickPrint can also be used with Sony Corp’s Magic Link. Lexicus said it would license the technology to other Personal Digital Assistant manufacturers. The software is $80, and is available immediately.
