Axiotron promises Quickscript upgrade for Modbooks

Quickscript for Modbooks

Axiotron, developer of the Modbook tablet conversion, has announced plans to debut new software at January's Macworld Expo. The company will be showing off Quickscript, special handwriting recognition code developed with the help of Vision Objects. Whereas the Modbook's touch functions have traditionally been aimed at illustrators, photographers and graphic designers, Quickscript should enable more general functions by substituting for typing.

The technology recognizes both cursive and printed handwriting, and should support as many as 21 languages on Modbooks. The future availability of Quickscript has yet to be announced; Axiotron has also promised to show off new hardware at Macworld, but is so far remaining quiet on details. The company may be planning to offer its first conversions based on aluminum MacBooks.
