I'm looking for a software that could be used to convert handwritten notes into typed notes after the handwritten file is scanned. I'm working in an office where there are a lot of handwritten notes taken at meetings and my boss has asked me to find a way to convert these handwritten notes into text form to be shared throughout the office. She said she felt there might be a program that could take a scanned image of the handwriting and change it into a more legible, typed out document. I don't know if this really exists but if there is such a software I'm looking for what it is called. The sooner I hear back the better so please, if you know anything about this, let me know. Thanks

You want an OCR to text converter

I've seen this one. You will need to buy the full version not the free, for hand written notes

would it matter if the letters are NOT disconnected? it's in a scrip form so all the letters are linked together.
