The Challenge: Digitising Handwritten Maths

Moving to digital platforms might be a big challenge for mathematical students who prefer to write their assignments on paper. In the past, transcribing handwritten equations and expressions into digital format has required laborious manual transcription, which discourages students from using digital tools and makes it more difficult for them to interact with mathematical content. This challenge is even greater for educators who must manage and assess handwritten assignments, as manual transcription can be labour-intensive and error-prone.

Manual Transcription Struggles

Manual transcription of handwritten maths work involves the tedious process of copying equations and expressions from paper to digital format, which results in inaccuracies and inconsistencies. Educators and students may find themselves spending excessive time and effort transcribing maths work instead of focusing on comprehension and problem-solving. Additionally, the lack of efficient handwriting recognition tools on digital platforms limits accessibility for individuals who prefer writing on paper and contributes to a disjointed learning experience.

Our Solution: Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

Graide's Optical Character Recognition (OCR) feature offers a solution to the challenges of digitising handwritten maths and manual transcription struggles.

Automated Conversion

With Graide, students can effortlessly convert handwritten maths work into digital format by taking a picture of their paper-based assignments.
