Inputting text

Pen input

How can I combine a real notebook with digitization?

Great question. My current solution here is Livescribe, a ball-point pen that remembers what you write if you use special paper. It also has some features I don’t use, such as audio recording. You can find more about that on the internet.

My summary is: Great pen; clunky data transference app. Worth it overall.

Here are some links I’ve needed for that recently:

Graphics tablets

Wacom are the recognisable ones here, but they are crazy expensive and their drivers are shite. Presumably their competitors also have shite drivers, but they cost less. Which competitor is least worst?

Mathematical OCR

a.k.a. “Reverse LaTeX”.
