December 22, 1999 (IDG) -- Communication Intelligence Corp. (CIC) on Tuesday announced that it will co-develop a Linux-based handwriting recognition and electronic-signature software development kit that company officials believe could result in the creation of a range of different products for several categories of wireless Internet appliances.

Based around CIC's Jot handwriting system and its InkTools development kit, CIC and Middlesoft, a San Francisco-based start-up, jointly will integrate the finished products into Middlesoft's graphical user interface.

Linux
 

Middlesoft's interface is specifically crafted for handheld devices and other Internet information appliances and can also be integrated with widget frameworks on Linux such as QT and GTK.

"We believe that MiddleSoft's Linux development and graphical user interface expertise is an ideal complement to our input and biometric electronic signature technologies," said Mike Sullivan, vice president in charge of CIC's Business Development. "We think this is a boost for Jot for becoming the de facto standard for handwriting recognition on pen-based, Internet, and information appliances."

CIC's core technologies feature multilingual handwriting recognition systems, dynamic signature verification, ink compression, and operating system extensions for pen input, according to the company.

Company officials declined to give a specific date for delivery of the finished product.
