Service to transfer handwritten content to text and send via e-mail.

Hello, I wonder if you have any information or guidance on the following:- Is there a service which transfers content from handwritten letters, or in images, such as in a fax service, to typed text which can then be sent to an e-mail address? Would there be some sort of security / anonymity / privacy involved, as there is with e-mails and post? Many people who require help on benefits, housing (travellers, homeless) do not necessarily have access to a computer, yet most of this information and guidance is available online. This is great for those who have access, but what about for those who have not? I know of PO Boxes which give anonymity, but this only works from one person to another, and only with written material. Any ideas or suggestions of such a service would be much appreciated.

The British Library plans to begin publishing the Codex Sinaiticus, a 4th century text handwritten in Greek, on its Web site. The Gospel of Mark and the Book of Psalms go online Thursday. The full manuscript is to be online in a year.Translations of the Codex Sinaiticus have long been widely available, but publishing images of the manuscript online will let anyone see pages that, until now, have been viewed in detail mainly by academia.As the Web site becomes operational, it will show photographs of each page of the text, with links to translations in English and German. There will also be a search function."It contains the earliest complete copy of the New Testament," said Scot McKendrick, the head of Western Manuscripts at the British Library.Click here to read more than I did!

How to make a journal/book look really old/vintage? Answered

Hi! I am working on a gift for my girlfriend and need some advice.... I am making a journal that is supposed to look old, aging the paper is not a problem and I found some fonts I can use...but... - printing on aged paper does not make the text look old! How can I make the printing look old? - also the printing looks too regular, not like handwritten. How can I achieve a more irregular look? Thanks! Fypsigon btw...handwriting is not an option, at least not my own....
