ACECAD DigiMemo Form Software


The DigiMemo series (digital notepad with memory) is an excellent solution for paper form applications which need a paper copy of the form and digitally filed data.

By processing the digital handwriting ink captured by the DigiMemo, and by performing ticks and handwriting recognition in the form software, the automation within the application removes the need to re-type handwritten data on paper forms.

By using the DigiMemo and the form software, you can save time and money by automating the process.

ArioForm for Vista

Using ArioForm, non-technical users can design and print their paper forms within minutes, then collect and process data, without relying on their IT department.

  • DesignIt is used to design and print your paper forms in a few clicks, using boxed & cursive text fields, radio & check box fields, gauges, ink & signature capture fields. It is possible to make forms visually more appealing by adding images, text labels and rectangles.
  • ProcessIt analyses the digital handwriting ink (DHW) files captured by the DigiMemo when filling in the paper forms, and converts the handwritten ink into data and digital text. A batch mode enables many pages to be processed and validated at once. It can export the data as CSV (Microsoft Excel), MDB (Microsoft Access) and XML files (for integration with an enterprise applications).
  • The software user interface is available in English, Spanish, French and German.

ArioForm Lite Version

For this Lite version of ArioForm, boxed text field, cursive text field and handwriting recognition are not enabled. It still allows the recognition of radio & check box. It can satisfy the simple form application which does not need handwriting recognition.

ArioForm Lite is bundled in the ACECAD DigiMemo package.
