      Thanks. Please note , in contrast to recognition handwriting on touch screen , the query is for text handwritten on paper

    We had a similar question here just the other day. There is no reliable way in Android (or any other system) to convert a picture of handwriting into text (except in specific domains such as addresses). However, there's an app called MyScript Stylus which allows you to write on the screen and will recognise that handwriting fairly accurately.
