   RE: [xml-dev] Tablet PC ink is XML (maybe SVG)

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

That seems strange.  OTOH, it would put to lie the
idea that MS isn't working with SVG.
They worked with SGML without telling anyone too.
But, a system that leaves all of the data decipherment
to the humans doesn't have much going for it except
getting rid of some file cabinets in the basement and
saving a few trees.

At least some "Ink" is SVG, I understand.

My limited understanding of this is that the shapes are captured by a product such as Corel's Grafigo (www.corel.com/grafigo) and that the shapes are stored as SVG. The SVG shapes can then be displayed exactly as the writer wrote them. Assuming that the writer wrote moderately legibly then the SVG file can, say, be emailed to someone and they can then read the writing. ... If you see what I mean.

So it isn't that the Tablet PC has cracked the handwriting recognition problem. It is more that it has cracked the handwriting recording/capturing problem and that the decipherment is left to the human recipient of the SVG file.

But I could be wrong! :)
