Pen to Print is the first handwriting to text OCR scanner converting handwritten notes into digital text available for edits, search and storage in any digital platform.
Use this unique handwriting OCR scanner to recognize and convert handwritten documents into digital text that can be edited, searched and stored on any device or cloud service.
Handwritten notes, such as letters, school notes, diaries, meeting minutes, grocery lists, recipes etc can now be scanned and converted, by our handwriting recognition engine, from image to text, available for use in any digital platform.

Our unique handwriting OCR (Optical character recognition) engine extracts handwritten texts from scanned paper documents and turns it into digital editable text. Unlike other OCR scanner apps, it is designed specifically to recognize handwriting in a scanned image.

Upgrade to premium plans to edit your text, save it to files, copy it, email it (to yourself or to others), add to Notes, or share on messaging apps available on your device. Then use your text in any word processor like Microsoft Word, Google Docs and similar, or export it to a note organizing app like Evernote, OneNote, Google Keep or similar.
We recommend trying the handwriting recognition first, for free, and only then purchase a premium plan, after seeing the quality of results the app is providing in converting handwriting to text.

Although Digital text is easier to edit, search and store, handwriting on paper is still commonly used, since it's fast, easy and accessible. Pen to Print's handwriting recognition (OCR) is a great solution for those who still like the feel of pen on paper, but want to enjoy the benefits of digital. It is easy to use, fast and affordable.
A perfect solution for students, for study notes, class notes and homework, in high school, college or university.
Excellent for sharing meeting minutes, protocols and other handwritten documents with multiple participants.
A helpful tool for secretaries and paralegals, saving hours of typing.

So far so good

I am considering taking my daily journal writing back to notebook and pen. But I'd like to be able to have a searchable digital version, so I decided to try this app.

On my brief test, it worked very well. It worked best when I scanned the page from my journal with a separate app, then used the photo input on this app. The prices for premium do not seem at all excessive for this ability.

I think I'm good to go with my notebook and pen + digital journaling plan.

I just came across this program as every so often over the years I look to see if anyone has accomplished the miracle of scanning human handwriting and converting it to a digital printed text that may be manipulated and saved. Nothing and I mean nothing has worked for me until now. I used it via camera selection and scanned in my wife’s pretty terrible handwriting- about 5 lines of a note she left for me. It was scanned in and broken down into pieces of text and then printed - 100% accurate including punctuation. Amazing.

I just noticed a bunch of negative reviews after I write this. My guess is that earlier versions did not work but this one as of December 2018 really does and it is very exciting been looking for this for years. I need to take inventory of guitars in stock with handwritten brief descriptions. Never found anything that could digitalize bandwriting at all. This does it very well often perfectly. Obviously legible handwriting and dark pen will help. Looking forward to the future changes as this gets even better.

Editing vs transcribing myself speed

To people with excellent handwriting, this is perhaps a viable option. My handwriting is well legible enough for most people to read without much difficulty , though is certainly not as neat as it could be!
This app is not a viable enough option for me currently however because my keyboarding speed (70wpm) exceeds the amount of time that it takes me to try and correct all the perceived errors from this app. The app gives me an error about 50% of the lines. Thus, it is more efficient for me at this moment to simply transcribe by typing myself than to simply edit myself. For others, this ratio could easily be different!

With a bit more tweaking, I can see this app becoming a great option for myself. Keep going!
