Handwriting recognition technologies have been around on tablets for a long while. But we have not seen many dedicated e-book readers that support them. A Seattle-based company called Puzzazz has designed TouchWrite, a technology that recognizes letters and numbers on the Kindle Touch. Users can draw numbers and letters on their e-reader and have TouchWrite recognize it.
TouchWrite is currently available for Kindle Touch devices through titles such as Sudoku Unbound Volume 3. It supports a variety of handwriting styles. This is a very nice feature to have on an e-reader such as the Kindle Touch. We would love to see Amazon add this tech to future Kindle Touch devices.
Have you tried TouchWrite already?
