Aspose handwriting reader

Aspose OCR technology is not limited to printed documents and books. Our advanced recognition algorithms can also extract searchable and editable text from handwritten notes. With this technology, you can easily digitize almost any content: family and corporate archives, sociological reports, tests, medical records, historical documents, and much more. The resulting text takes up ten times less space than scanned images and can be easily combined, searched and analyzed, giving you instant access to vast amounts of previously hard-to-find data.

This free online application allows you to explore our handwriting recognition capabilities without installing any applications and writing a single line of code. It supports any type of file that you can get from a smartphone, scanner, or camera, and can even work directly with content from external websites without downloading images to your computer.
