Recently, a friend of mine wrote a book, handwritten. She doesn't have the heart to type the three-hundred pages that she painfully wrote for two years. I really want to help her, can anyone tell me a way to publish handwritten text?
For anyone who has found they have written a whole bunch and just don't have the heart to convert, it's good to know there's ways around that.
Here's how to help:
- hire a transcription service. (is about from $240-$900 total for that depending on the service)
- buy a talk-to-text program that converts speech into text.
- something new that scans handwritten into text: https://www.popsci.com/digitize-handwritten-notes/
But no, to answer your question, no sane publisher would ever take a handwritten manuscript. Unless she was already published and famous.
