Software & tools for using a computer without directly using a keyboard, mouse or screen

May 7, 2021

I’m particularly interested in software and tools that enable one to use a computer to help write and draw without directly using a keyboard, mouse, or screen, as I find these things very tiring to use over long periods of time. I’ve listed several tools below and broken them into the following categories: speech to text, text to speech, ways of capturing and interpreting handwritten drawings, scripting, and, finally, some thoughts for the future.

* Interpreting handwritten images & notes

Evernote
Google photos/lens
