Google ouvre son moteur de recherche à l'écriture manuscrite

Google ouvre son moteur de recherche à l'écriture manuscrite | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it

Écrivez, c'est trouvé ! le moteur de recherche de Google permet dorénavant de chercher ses pages à l'aide du doigt ou d'un stylet. Il suffit juste d'avoir un écran tactile.

Le roi des moteurs de recherches devient encore plus simple à utiliser. Depuis deux jours, il est possible d'effectuer ses recherches sur Internet en entrant, dans la barre d'occurrences, un mot saisi au doigt ou au stylet.

Pour utiliser cette nouvelle option, il suffit juste d'aller dans l'onglet paramètres de la page du célèbre navigateur, et de cocher l'option "Écriture manuscrite", de sauvegarder, et le tour est joué.

Une fois la modification effectuée, il faut alors revenir sur la page d'accueil du moteur de recherche et cliquer sur Plus ; une nouvelle barre apparaîtra, avec, de gauche à droite, une rubrique d'aide, une barre d'espacement, une touche retour en arrière et un dernier bouton, en forme de "g".

Google Adds Handwrite To Mobile Search [VIDEO]

Google Adds Handwrite To Mobile Search [VIDEO] | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it

Google has created a new mobile search input feature that allows users to perform handwriting operations on touchscreen devices.

The well-designed new feature, creatively termed as Google Handwrite, lets users manually handwrite search inquiries on Google’s homepage by simply writing the characters anywhere on their device’s touchscreen using their own fingers. Note: This feature is currently on its beta stage.

Rui Ueyama, software engineer at Google, posted in a blog yesterday, “Handwrite enables you to search by just writing letters with your finger most anywhere on your device’s screen – there’s no keyboard that covers half of the screen and no need for hunt-and-peck typing.”

Hands on with Google Handwrite, Google's new search feature | Macworld

Hands on with Google Handwrite, Google's new search feature | Macworld | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it

Announced on Google’s blog Thursday morning, the company's new beta project aims to make it easier to search, no matter where you are or what you’re doing. Handwrite allows you to block print or handwrite letters, words, and punctuation on the screen, where it will be instantly analyzed and converted into a search term.

The feature is pretty simple to turn on: On an iPhone, scroll down to the Settings link on Google.com (on an iPad, click Search Settings from the Gear icon), enable Handwrite mode, then return to Google.com. Tap the new button in the lower right corner—it resembles a cursive lower-case g—to turn Handwrite on, and just start scribbling.

On an iPhone or iPod touch, I found Handwrite a little finicky due to the small screen. (See my hands-on video, below.) The service will intelligently try to guess at your letters and words, though, so if you only write “dowag” before you run out of room, you can continue with “er” and it will put the letters together to make “dowager”—and suggest you might be looking for the Dowager Countess from Downton Abbey, at that.
