The Anoto digital pen technology has been used by digital pens for years to capture whatever a digital smartpen writes and draws on special dot paper.
Tapping synchronizes the replay with the timing of your original notes, so you can see exactly what you took down at a given point during the original lecture.The recorded audio visual clips are called pencasts. They can be stored on the pen and transferred to your PC or Mac for storage, updating, searching, retrieval, review and exporting to friends. The pencast works just like any computer file.
Conversion of Handwriting to Digital Text
If a pen user’s handwriting is sometimes illegible, with the optional MyScript for Livescribe Handwriting Conversion Software (about $30), your handwritten and audio notes recorded with the Livescribe 2 GB Echo Smartpen APA00009 can be converted to digital text, making the notes easier to share and search.
Livescribe Desktop Support
Files on your computer can be organized in Custom notebooks on your personal Livescribe online webspace. Your personal Livescribe space probably contains far more information than an armful of physical notebooks, and can be stored in much less space. To be sure you have enough space for your virtual notebooks, Livescribe gives you 500 MB of online storage.
