When I convert a handwritten passage from ink to text I get decent, but not 100% correct recognition. With speech recognition you can teach the software to understand your voice better, is there a similar method for handwriting? Specifically in OneNote 2010/2013.

  • You could always used different OCR software. Outside of that I don't believe so. – Ramhound Sep 8 '14 at 13:40

There is a training that improves handwriting recognition overall in Windows. There are 50 sentences and you have to train for each language used. However, you can save and transfer these "training files" : Transfer handwriting personalization to another Tablet PC

Yoga member at Surface Forums explains how to find it in Windows 8+ by going to "the handwriting "training". It's in "control panel"/"Time, Language,Region"/"Add Language"/. Edit the Options of the installed language."

    This is only a little better than a "just a link" answer. If you could copy/paste the instructions on how to get into the handwriting recognition training program, this answer would be much better. – music2myear Oct 20 '14 at 20:09
  • I'll try to do that later today, though my system is in pt-br and windows 8.1. So, I don't know if it will help too much. – orlando2bjr Oct 23 '14 at 17:02

Go to the control Panel Language options sections. Use the personalize handwriting training tool. Complete the 50 sentences. Works fantastic after that.
