New computer programme replicates handwriting 12 August In a world increasingly dominated by the QWERTY keyboard, UCL computer scientists have developed software which may spark the comeback of the handwritten word by analysing the handwriting of any individual and accurately replicating it.
The scientists have created 'My Text in Your Handwriting', a programme which semi-automatically examines a sample of a person's handwriting, which can be as little as one paragraph, and generates new text saying whatever the user wishes, as if the author had handwritten it themselves.
Stroke victims, for example, may be able to formulate letters without the concern of illegibility, or someone sending flowers as a gift could include a handwritten note without even going into the florist.
It could also be used in comic books where a piece of handwritten text can be translated into different languages without losing the author's original style. Authors produce different glyphs to represent the same element of writing - the way one individual writes an "a" will usually be different to the way others write an "a".
Although an individual's writing has slight variations, every author has a recognisable style that manifests in their glyphs and their spacing. The software learns what is consistent across an individual's style and reproduces this. The problem with such fonts is that it is often clear that the text has not been penned by hand, which loses the character and personal touch of a handwritten piece of text.
What we've developed removes this problem and so could be used in a wide variety of commercial and personal circumstances. Thus far, the scientists have analysed and replicated the handwriting of such figures as Abraham Lincoln, Frida Kahlo and Arthur Conan Doyle.
Infamously, Conan Doyle never actually wrote Sherlock Holmes as saying, "Elementary my dear Watson" but the team have produced evidence to make you think otherwise. To test the effectiveness of their software, the team asked people to distinguish between handwritten envelopes and ones created by their automatic software.
Given how convincing the computer generated handwriting is, some may believe the method could help in forging documents, but the team explained it works both ways and could actually help in detecting forgeries.
For example, we could calculate what ratio of people start their 'o's' at the bottom versus the top and this kind of detailed analysis could reduce the forensics service's reliance on heuristics.Your complete handwriting analysis resource: free handwriting analysis trait dictionary, handwriting of celebrities, handwriting analysis books, handwriting analysis videos and much more The worlds #1 most popular Handwriting Analysis website by leading handwriting expert Bart Baggett - handwriting, handwriting analysis, handwriting, graphology.
