Would Anyone appreciate handwriting recognition for Maths?

Hi,

My name is Mandy and I am very new to this forum. I am a university student who is debating whether a freely available handwriting recognition technology for mathematics expression can make life a lot easier for those who want to communicate mathematics on-line. I have prepared a survey and wondered if it would be objectionable to post the link up here to ask for your opinions. The survey is fairly short and basically only asks for information such as do you use MS Word Maths editor, Latex etc. It should take only a few minutes.

I would be really grateful for the help,
Mandy

Hello, Mandy!

I don't see that such a survey would be objectionable. I do really appreciate you asking first.

So, go ahead and post a link to your survey.

just a polite note to say thank you to everyone who has participated in the survey. I have now been given the go ahead to look into developing something that would make it easier to communicate mathematics online. thank you all.

Fantastic! Keep us in the loop as development continues. Maybe we can even help beta test?
