WritePad HWRE enables application developers and OEMs to add handwriting-based text input, which is automatically converted to digital text. Throughout its long history, the WritePad handwriting engine has not only been used in most of PhatWare's end-user apps, but has also been adapted by numerous software developers and OEMs and was deployed on millions of tables, smartphones, and other mobile and touch-screen devices. WritePad HWRE is available on GitHub at https://github.com/phatware/WritePad-Handwriting-Recognition-Engine.  

"For many years PhatWare Corp. has been offering state-of-the-art handwriting recognition solutions for software developers and OEMs on various development platforms." – said Stan Miasnikov, president of PhatWare Corp. – "Today, it is my pleasure to introduce a fully functional multilingual handwriting recognition engine to the open source community."
