HTML 5.1, Speech and Handwriting Recognition

HTML Working Group,
Greetings.  With regard to HTML 5.1, multilingual handwriting recognition is a possible feature, including with mathematical and scientific notations.  Handwriting recognition could be implemented as a <canvas> context, as per canvas.getContext('handwriting', ...), and/or as an <input> element mode.
With either a <canvas> context or an <input> element mode for handwriting recognition, some JavaScript API topics could include InkML and handwriting recognition results as XHTML + MathML (,,  Additionally, some web developers and users might be interested in digital whiteboards for WebRTC-enhanced web applications.

A number of HTML-related scenarios, including for the use cases of digital textbooks, can be facilitated by the multilingual recognition of speech and handwriting with functionality for mathematical and scientific notations.

Kind regards,

Adam Sobieski
