Is There Inkrecognition Relevance To The Rsereach At An Eling

Is there ink-recognition relevance to the rsereach at an Elingsh uinervtisy, taht seowhd it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are? Should word recognizers try to exploit a similar strategy, concentrating on recognizing the initial and ending strokes of an ink group, the length of the group for a rough letter count, and just sort of muddling along in the middle? 

Hey, speaking of ink-recognition, someone from Microsoft told me that the Tablet PC ink recognizer is derived from the Newton’s (in)famous recognizer via Pen & Internet’s Calligrapher. Just to make things confusing, Pen & Internet ships a “next generation” handwriting recognition tool for the Tablet called RitePen. 30-day trial available.
