Despite the current dominance of typed text, writing by hand remains the most natural mean of written communication and information keeping. Still, digital pen input provides limited user experience and lacks flexibility, as most of the manipulations are performed on a digitalized version of the text. In this paper, we present our prototype that enables spellchecking for handwritten text: it allows users to interactively correct misspellings directly in a handwritten script. We plan to study the usability of the proposed user interface and its acceptance by users. Also, we aim to investigate how user feedback can be used to incrementally improve the underlying recognition models.
