Read-Ink is a small, privately held company specializing in document analysis and handwriting recognition technologies. We are based in Silicon Valley with our R&D centre in Bangalore where Dr. Thomas O. Binford (Professor Emeritus, Stanford) leads a team of 15 engineers.

Our current focus is on handwriting recognition, online and offline. With the increasing number of pen input based devices, highly accurate handwriting recognition has become the critical element of the user experience. With our novel methods and adaptable system, we are pushing the current state of art to new levels. The first version of our online recognition technology will be available very soon.

In the already crowded offline document processing market, our edge is very high recognition rates on unconstrained writing styles and relative independence from the lexicon. In addition, our technology is sensitive to the needs of businesses that require setting up automated systems based on recognition technology and maintain very high levels of accuracy. We provide reliable confidence levels with the output that help in bringing in human intervention at the right time leading to efficient utilization of resources.
