About this app

Pen to Print is the first handwriting to text OCR app converting scanned handwritten notes into digital text available for edits, search and storage in any digital platform.
Use this unique Handwriting OCR scanner to scan, recognize and convert handwritten documents into digital text that can be edited, searched and stored on any device or cloud service.
Handwritten notes, such as letters, school notes, diaries, meeting minutes, grocery lists, recipes etc can now be scanned and converted, by our handwriting recognition engine, into text, available for use in any digital platform.

Our unique handwriting OCR (Optical Character Recognition) engine is designed especially to convert handwriting to text. It extracts handwritten texts from scanned paper documents and turns it into digital editable text. Unlike other OCR scanner apps, it is designed specifically to recognize handwriting.

Upgrade to premium plan to edit your text, save it to files, copy it, email it (to yourself or to others), add to Notes, or share on messaging apps available on your device. Then use your text in any word processor like Microsoft Word, Google Docs and similar, or export it to a note organizing app like Evernote, OneNote, Google Keep or similar.
We recommend trying the handwriting recognition first, for free, and only then purchase a premium plan, after seeing the quality of results the app is providing in converting handwriting to text.

Although Digital text is easier to edit, search and store, handwriting on paper is still commonly used, since it's fast, easy and accessible. Pen to Print's handwriting recognition (OCR) is a great solution for those who still like the feel of pen on paper, but want to enjoy the benefits of digital. It is easy to use, fast and affordable.
A perfect solution for students, to convert their handwritten study notes, class notes and homework, in high school, college or university.
Excellent for sharing meeting minutes, protocols and other handwritten documents with multiple participants.
A helpful tool for secretaries and paralegals, saving hours of typing.
Well suited for archiving and organizing documents.

Please note:
The success of the handwriting recognition relates directly to the quality of your scan. For best results scan your document in a well lighted area, make sure the paper is straightened and not folded or skewed. If unsuccessful, just try scanning again, it might make all the difference.

The app currently supports Latin script only.
Our handwriting recognition system can convert different kinds of handwriting to text: block letters, cursive and regular script.

Great amount of time and effort are invested in this app in order to provide an efficient quality handwriting to text OCR tool. We hope you find this app useful and enjoy using it. We welcome all feedbacks and always happy to hear from our users.

great app! very thought out! i love the feature where it has the handwritten text, and printed text below it, line by line, obviously there is some room for improvement (like virtually every app as room for improvement), for instance it doesn't have the short menu on long press while editing on (cut, copy, select all, etc) but definitely deserves 5 stars

The app is pretty good. I wish I could do things within the app such as underline and highlight. The transcription works fairly well but I'm not sure yet if it's worth the time of correcting errors. I have learned that writing in double spaced lines helps reduce errors. I use erasable paper so that I'm not wasting a lot of paper but still get the ease and memory benefits of actually writing notes by hand rather than typing.

This is the best ocr I've tried for reading my mother's and grandmother's cookbooks. The editing format shows the original with the ocr so I don't have to look back at the source. I find it a little clumsy to click edit for each line of text and I wish there was a formatting option so it didn't end up with short lines of text, it would be quicker to put hard returns into a block of unformatted text where I need them than to remove so many. Over all, I'll probably buy premium.
