Cognitive Services pricing - Ink Recognizer

Build apps that unlock the productivity of digital ink

Ink Recognizer provides APIs that allow developers to embed digital ink recognition capabilities into their apps. These can be used to recognize digital handwriting, common shapes, and the layout of an inked document for scenarios such as note-taking, form-filling, and document annotation.

Developers have built upon this recognition capability to help users get the most out of their notes like making writing legible in an instant and converting scrawl into searchable content. As the world is becoming increasingly digital, this service enables developers to create experiences that combine the benefits of physical pen and paper with the best of the digital world.

Pricing details

Charges are on a per-transaction basis. One transaction corresponds to a request to the service broken down into increments of 200 ink strokes. So, a request of 200 strokes counts as one transaction, a request of 400 strokes counts as two, etc.

The service is currently in public preview and charged at public preview price. GA price will be announced when the service goes GA.
