Nantes (France), January 20, 2009. Vision Objects, provider of the industry standard in natural handwriting recognition technology, announces today the release 4.4 of MyScript Builder, adding more power and functionalities to the SDK (Software Development Kit).The MyScript Builder­, famous for its high rate of accuracy, is a successful handwriting recognition engine which recognizes all kinds of writing styles from isolated characters to cursive handwriting. Today, Vision Objects goes further by adding a sophisticated text correction engine.Indeed, nobody is perfect and everybody can, one day, make errors and cross out, scribble out, write over a character several times or add words above another while writing notes! MyScript Builder can now identify and deal with writing mistakes, which makes its recognition even more accurate. This new functionality will be particularly appreciated among Form Processing industries where rigorous data capture is required. Moreover, among the new features available, MyScript Builder now supports Arabic and Turkish, bringing the number of languages supported for natural handwriting to 24. “We consistently work on providing our customers with constant improvements in handwriting recognition and innovative features for specific markets, such as form processing”, said Stefan Knerr, CEO and founder of Vision Objects.   About Vision Objects
