Method for Presenting Recognition Results in Online Handwritten Character Recognition

       Disclosed is a method for displaying recognition results
in online handwritten character recognition that includes language
post-processing.

      A language post-processor deals with an erroneous recognition
result on the basis of a language analysis, such as a spelling check.
Since the analysis requires several consecutive characters, the
recognition result for a character is not confirmed until the user
has written the next several characters.  Consequently, if the
recognition result is displayed to the user character by character
before the analysis is complete, the user may take unnecessary steps
to correct erroneous recognition results that can be corrected by the
language post-processor.  Such unnecessary user operations are a
problem in the user interface.  The cause of the problem is that the
user is not informed of the duration of the analysis.

      The existing method solves the problem by hiding the
recognition result until the language post-processor has completed
the analysis.  Therefore, the solution has the defect that the
recognition result of a character is always hidden, even if it is
correct.  (Language post-processors are useless if the correct
recognition rate is not high.)

      The disclosed method solves the problem by underlining or
highlighting the recognition result until the language post-processor
has completed the analysis. ...
