digital ink

Refers to technology that digitally represents handwriting in its natural form. In a typical digital ink system, a digitizer is laid under or over an LCD screen to create an electromagnetic field that can capture the movement of a special-purpose pen, or stylus, and record the movement on the LCD screen. The effect is like writing on paper with liquid ink. The recorded handwriting can then be saved as handwriting or converted to typewritten text using handwriting recognition technology.
