# Conversion

In iink SDK terminology, “conversion” refers to the replacement of some handwritten content by a clean, typeset equivalent.

## Conversion vs. recognition

Conversion is an explicit action you can trigger to replace ink content with a typeset equivalent. It is different from the recognition process it relies on, which runs in background and interprets any input, making it interactive.

You can convert the content of your block by calling the convert() methods.

editor.convert();
