Nowadays, writing a math paper in a word processing application or performing calculations in a computational engine often requires spending a considerable amount of time creating math expressions using either a complex UI model with a multitude of drop-down buttons or a complicated and difficult to remember linear format input. As of Windows 7, Microsoft provides users with the most natural and efficient way of inputting math - handwriting recognition, as part of its operating system. Microsoft has taken a completely new approach to this problem and raised math handwriting recognition to a whole new level in terms of functionality, performance and area coverage.
