Abstract

Disclosed is a method for improving useability of handwriting recognition on Pen based computer. The useability of handwriting recognition strongly depends on its recognition candidates. By modifying its recognition candidates and information, the disclosed method improves the useability of handwriting recognition. This method is not depend on a handwriting recognition program itself.

Additional Recognition Candidates and Remarks for Similar Shape Characters

      Disclosed is a method for improving useability of handwriting
recognition on Pen based computer.  The useability of handwriting
recognition strongly depends on its recognition candidates.  By
modifying its recognition candidates and information, the disclosed
method improves the useability of handwriting recognition.  This
method is not depend on a handwriting recognition program itself.

      This method is comprised of the following two basic operations:

1.  Add additional characters as recognition candidates ( OP-1 ).

2.  Put remakes for similar shape characters ( OP-2 ).

The operation flow and example of results are shown in the Table.

      After the handwriting recognition program, OP-1 adds some
characters as recognition candidates.  These candidates must not have
a relationship with original recognition candidates.  The operator
can specify any characters even if the handwriting recognition
program does not return characters which the user expects.  In the
Table OP-1 adds Alphabet-l (L) and Alphabet-e (E) as additional
candidates.

      After OP-1, OP-2 puts remarks for similar shape characters.  If
there are similar shape characters in recognition candidates,
operator cannot select expected one on low resolution display.  In
the Table OP-2 puts remarks for Alphabet-I (i), Number-1 (One) and
Alphabet-1 (L).  By this operation, operator can select expected o...
