Some Manual Note-takers use a digital pen to produce digi-notes – these are handwritten and transformed into a digital (e.g. Word document) format which is emailed to the client after the event.
An electronic receiver is clipped to the page and receives signals from the digital pen. The receiver can later be attached to a computer and character recognition software converts the handwriting to text such as in a Word document.
Advantages include being able to share the notes electronically with colleagues and features such as the font and text and background colour can be changed to suit the reader. As with manual notes diagrams can be incorporated as well as scanned in, annotated handouts. Clients can also add their own comments to the notes.
