MyScript for Livescribe

I wrote last year about changes to the Livescribe desktop application. In that post I mentioned MyScript for Livescribe. MyScript is a new third party software application that is integrated into Livescribe Desktop and allows you to take your Livescribe written content and translate this into Word documents.

We like the product.

This blog post is an example of what MyScript finds when you send Livescribe content from the Desktop over to MyScript. As a side note, I think the page I was writing on had some smudges as the Livescribe page is missing some writing strokes that I can clearly see on my Journal.

This screen capture is an example of the MyScript user interface – the panel on the left is the page from Livescribe Desktop, while the panel on the right is what MyScript has transcribed.

Myscript Example

MyScript is very simple to use. One feature I like is the 1 button push to send to Notepad. It means I can drop from MyScript into Notepad and then cut/paste into the WordPress WYSIWYG new post editor.

I think MyScript for Livescribe would be a very useful addition for students, PA’s, project managers etc.

  2. Now that there is a Mac version, can you point me to any reviews of myscript? Just wanting to know how accurate it is…

      Hi Jonathan,
      I don’t think anyone has done any definitive reviews – but if your school sends me a purchase order we’ll bundle the MAC version of MyScript for Livescribe for free – and if you then write a review we’ll promote it on Twitter, here on the blog, and on Facebook…

      My opinion, having used it on PC is that it’s a pretty good product. It’s not perfect, but then again, neither is human hand writing. Comments we’ve had from users in the field is that they are very happy with it and the users tend to adapt their writing slightly as they learn what MyScript doesn’t recognise.

      Feel free to call me if you have any specific questions. If you’re in Brisbane this week or next I’d be happy to give you a live demo

  3. Hi Mark – I actually have submitted the purchase order to my BSM just waiting for them to send it off! and then yes, will review. As for the demo, I appreciate the offer, will see how my schedule goes.

    Hi Mark,
    I’ve just been having a bit of a search and i’m hoping you can help… What format is the my script text saved as?

    Would it then be possible to convert/put the text into an excel document with the same formatting that was used when the text was written?

    Many thanks for you thoughts

      Hi Jenelle
      When you convert the Livescribe content into MyScript you have the option to save this content to Word, Text (i.e. .txt), or PDF.

      I’m not sure I understand your second question? Please feel free to respond to the email that I’ve sent you
