Digital Handwritten Notes

Digital Handwritten Notes. it sounds like an oxymoron...kind of like a hairy bald guy, but it is here.

The writing surface is about the size of a small piece of paper. The whole board is light and easy to carry and about the size of an 8x11 piece of paper. It is a tiny computer and you can add more RAM- with a memory card.

The blind student can take the digital note-taking device to a class where the teacher is very driven by writing on the board. The blind student hands it to a sighted student and she takes notes on it. At the end of class, the sighted student rips off the pages for their self and hands the board back to the blind student. The blind student can then download all the notes onto the computer. In tangent with this is a handwriting recognition tool, which translates the handwriting into digital text that talking software can read. Note taking made easy.

This is the one I have been using and as long as the handwritten notes are legible, the pad can read it to the computer. SolidTek DigiMemo 692 Digital Notepad with Memory by SolidTek Make sure you purchase the hand writing software also with this pad, as it is this software that allows you to go from image to text.

If you read this information in my blog, http://blindgeteducated.blogspot.com/ you can just click on the links and it will take you directly to the product, or if you are using talking software, just bring up your links and you can go to the product. This is true for all the information in the blog.
