i have a serious video game injury, from playing doom for 5 hours a day, two days straight over one weekend. this was a couple years ago, i strained my elbow. yes, the tendons in that joint are important to how i play with keyboard and mouse. and type in general. it’s not quite tennis elbow, it’s pain in a different area.
at any rate, because i love to write/type, this put a serious cramp in my style. (gawd, at one point my arm hurt so bad that i was typing in aol-ese to my friends.) so i got a nifty handwriting recognition program to use with my tablet: Rite Pen. it is a great product; you write right across the screen, and then an app pops up so you can adjust what it thinks you wrote. all without typing anything.
i used to write notes with it, and at the top i would put ‘any typos are not typos, but bad handwriting.’ and then i started collecting a few doozies of how the software interpreted some of my scrawls. i haven’t used it lately, so here’s the collection of “Handwriting Recognition’s Greatest Misses”!
