Title: Method for rendering improved personal handwriting

Abstract: A computer implemented method for generating an image of handwritten text having improved appearance, includes the steps of: providing a handwritten sample of the text; generating a digital image of the handwritten sample; processing the digital image of the handwritten sample to generate a digital image of text having improved appearance; and displaying the digital image having improved appearance. According to one approach, the digital image of a handwritten sample is combined with a digital image of the sample written in a normative handwriting font. According to an alternative approach, the digital images of several samples of the same text are combined to produce the improved image.
