AUSTIN, Texas – July 28, 2016 MyScript, a pioneering market leader in accurate, high-performance handwriting recognition and digital ink management technology, announces the launch of Interactive Ink. Developed by MyScript Labs, Interactive Ink is a new form of digital ink technology allowing ink editing via simple gestures and providing device reflow flexibility. Interactive Ink relies on real-time predictive handwriting recognition, driven by artificial intelligence and neural network architectures. With the release of Interactive Ink, MyScript’s application developer toolkit (ATK) will now provide this technology integrated into MyScript’s recognition product offerings for use by software developers and OEMs.

“Digital ink innovations have remained stagnant over the last decade providing only limited capabilities. Current ink technology only allows the capture and display of digital ink on device surfaces much like ink on paper,” said Paddy Padmanabhan, CEO, MyScript. “Our new interactive ink technology combines the flexibility of pen and paper with the power and productivity of digital processing to create the best user experience in dynamic digital handwriting.”

Interactive Ink Ushers in New Era of Computing Input

Interactive Ink allows users to more intuitively interact with their digital devices to create content, without the need for a keyboard, and then share that content in digital form. It allows users to write in block or cursive input, and predictively interpret and convert to digital text. Solving math calculations and recognizing advanced handwritten mathematical equations that include symbols is now easy. Hand-drawn charts, maps and diagrams are easily transformed into digital shapes that are editable, searchable and storable. Interactive Ink transcends touch interfaces to allow users to create and capture their thoughts simply by writing.

“We’re excited to officially launch Interactive Ink technology and offer our application toolkit to independent software developers and OEMs across the globe,” said Gary Baum, vice president of marketing, MyScript. “Interactive Ink technology dramatically advances the digital ink human machine interface and enables digital handwriting in unprecedented ways.”

Interactive Ink toolkit is now available from MyScript Developer. The power of Interactive Ink can be experienced through the award-winning MyScript Calculator and the soon to be released Nebo, MyScript’s revolutionary notetaking application.
