ScanSnap ix500 Handwriting Recognition

I got a question today about the handwriting recognition capabilities of my ScanSnap ix500. I'm still madly in love with the ScanSnap for paperwork and automatic document filing, but handwriting isn't its strong point. Here's an example document I scanned:


Here's what was recognized:

e//o vjon 'anreo/ia//po/n/

Here is the actual PDF: 2015_04_09_19_03_15

    I’m curious to see what Evernote will do with that PDF. Have you tried? I’ll give it a shot and comment later.

    Went back to look and the handwriting is very searchable in Evernote.
