There are a host of new features that will be introduced in Windows 8.

This post will talk about Windows 8 Handwriting Recognition

Microsoft are spending a lot of time and money making this operating system a lot slicker faster and more efficient than Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7.

This is part of a series of posts that I’ll be putting in place to kind of stake out the features I believe will be in Windows 8

Below, I will try and summarize each feature for you so that you can get a comprehensive overview of what I believe will be a new Windows 8 features.

Windows 8’s handwriting recognition will probably be pitched at Tablet PCs. Today, Windows 7 users launch something Microsoft calls the Tablet Input Panel (TIP.) They write, and the text is converted.

The user then inserts that text into an Office application like Word. One limitation has been the languages that a recognizer has been available for.

Windows 7 adds fourteen new languages to the eight obvious Latin languages and four East Asian languages originally supported by Vista.

It’s a good bet that Windows 8 will have Handwriting Recognition.
