I need to collect shorter and longer student handwritten essays and have those converted to .txt files.

What are the limitations with OCR SDK?

ABBYY technologies allows to recognize the handwritten text only if the characters are written separately (so-called "handprinted text"). Also you should consider that automatic layout analysis is not available for handprinted text, so the coordinates of the blocks that contain handprinted text must be specified manually.

We recommend you to take a look at the processTextField method and to pay your attention on the article with some details in documentation.
