2.Vertical written character.

Dear Takuya San,

Thank you for contacting us.

To answer your questions:
1-Our solution is normally very accurate, i.e. when something is written corresctly, we normally recognize it similarly as a humain being would do... for bad handwritings, we of course can not do miracles.

2-The ATK cannot recognize vertical characters, even for Japanese language.

Best regards,


Dear Olivier,

Thanks for replying to my question.

I understood that MyScript unrecognize vertical handwritten character.


There are additional a question.

Can I get accuracy of recognized character as percent or actual value?

e.g "a" is 95%, "d" is 80%.

Dear Takuya San,

we can not provide with  figures regarding the accuracy. Indeed, if a word is "properly" written, accuracy can be trusted, if not properly written, accuracy will be low.

Best regards,
