Electronic Signature and Validation via Tablet PC
August 27, 2013 9:45 AM   Subscribe

Is there a standalone tool which would allow one to create an offline form which must (1) be completed via Tablet PC stylus - that is, accept handwritten entry; (2) prompt the user if required "fields" have not been completed?

In a similar vein to this question, I'm looking for a relatively simple piece of software which will allow the creation of a standard, offline form which requires the completion of several "fields" (or spaces on the form) via a stylus on a Tablet PC.

This form will be used in the field to collect a certain type of consent for participation in a research project.

Currently, we are using a tool which works adequately (allows stylus entry), but does not enable any validation to ensure that required fields have been completed.

Thanks in advance.

By "Tablet PC", do you mean Windows? If so, which version?

Sorry; Windows 7. Also, our tablet PCs are not touchscreen, so "handwritten" does not refer to signing with one's finger.

For posterity - it appears that Microsoft InfoPath does allow the creation of offline forms which accept stylus input and "field" validation.
