Linux-based handwriting recognition system planned

Communication Intelligence Corp. (CIC) yesterday announced that it will co-develop a Linux-based handwriting recognition and electronic-signature software development kit that company officials believe could result in the creation of a range of different products for several categories of wireless Internet appliances.

Based around CIC's Jot handwriting system and its InkTools development kit, CIC and Middlesoft, a San Francisco-based start-up, jointly will integrate the finished products into Middlesoft's graphical user interface.

Middlesoft's interface is specifically crafted for handheld devices and other Internet information appliances and can also be integrated with widget frameworks on Linux such as QT and GTK.

"We believe that MiddleSoft's Linux development and graphical user interface expertise is an ideal complement to our input and biometric electronic signature technologies," said Mike Sullivan, vice president in charge of CIC's Business Development. "We think this is a boost for Jot for becoming the de facto standard for handwriting recognition on pen-based, Internet, and information appliances."

CIC's core technologies feature multilingual handwriting recognition systems, dynamic signature verification, ink compression, and operating system extensions for pen input, according to the company.

Company officials declined to give a specific date for delivery of the finished product.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
