There are two types of handwriting-recognition software: one that processes written handwriting from passive media such as paper and photos, and one that processes live handwriting from active media such as touch screens and digitizer tablets. The technologies used to process passive handwritten documents are optical character recognition (OCR) and intelligent word recognition (IWR). Software for active handwriting recognition may use fuzzy logic and neural network techniques to process live handwriting.
