    Hi all,

    I enjoy writing by long-hand in Word 2013. But is there a way by which I can convert handwritten work into text in Word?

    Thanks in advance!

    If you have Office then you can do it in OneNote.

    Thanks. Please explain, I am not sure I follow you. I can ink in OneNote 2013 with no issues. I mean only in Word without taking recourse to any other app outside it.

    handwriting recognition may not installed by default, you may need to install it separately.
    1.Select the text inserted in handwritten form that you want to convert to typed text.
    2.Right-click the selected text, point to Ink Object on the shortcut menu, and then click Recognize.
    Note If Microsoft Word is enabled as your e-mail editor, you can use this feature in Microsoft Outlook also.
