Here’s one of those really simple yet magical looking technologies that has broad application, but is especially interesting in academic settings. MyScript, a pioneering market leader in accurate, high-performance handwriting recognition and digital ink management technology, recently launched Nebo, a brand new notetaking application that showcases the power of its leading-edge Interactive Ink technology. By leveraging the power of Interactive Ink technology, Nebo makes handwritten digital document creation both seamless and highly productive. Available on the Windows and Apple App stores, Nebo enables tablet users with active pens to write and edit their handwritten notes in real-time. Users can also write and solve complex mathematical equations, draw diagrams, sketch pictures and instantly convert to digital form for sharing, searching and storage. All of Nebo’s real-time digitized content – text, diagrams and mathematical equations – is editable with the stylus alone, providing for ease-of-use and productivity gains previously not possible with digital handwriting. Written input can be quickly formatted into rich text using titles, paragraphs and bulleted lists with simple active pen gestures. All formatting is preserved when rendered into digital documents. Nebo is device independent, allowing for reflow flexibility and responsiveness to digital ink based on device size and screen orientation. Collaboration is enabled by exporting to other programs or locations like a default browser, Microsoft Word on Windows or text on iOS. Learn more.
