iPadOS 14.5 Beta version adds Apple Pencil graffiti text recognition support in five languages

Apple has introduced an Apple Pencil function called “Scribble” in iPadOS 14. Users can write in any text field on the iPad, and the handwritten text will then be automatically converted to text.

At the time of release, Scribble was limited to English and Chinese, but as the iPadOS 14.5 beta was opened to developers and public beta users, Apple expanded Scribble’s support to German, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.

After installing the iPadOS 14.5 Beta on the iPad, users in these countries can now write in their native language, and iPadOS can accurately translate text. The new language is enabled through the “Keyboard” section of the “Settings” application.

Any supported language that is enabled as a keyboard option will be listed under “Scribble” in the Apple Pencil settings on the iPad, and this language can be used when writing, and special characters are also supported.

Scribble can be used throughout iPadOS 14 to write out iMessages, perform Safari searches, find directions on the map, create notes, schedule calendar events, etc. It also comes with other functions, such as smart selection, which can be used to copy/paste handwritten notes, and the built-in data detection function can also convert numbers and email addresses into clickable content.

Apple’s feature availability page still only lists English and Chinese as available Scribble options, but this situation should change when iPadOS 14.5 sees the official release in early spring.

Apple also introduced many other changes and features in iPadOS 14.5, including support for the latest gamepad, when the iPad is in landscape mode, the Apple loading logo will be displayed correctly horizontally, new emoji characters, and more.
