What is the best way to upload handwritten notes to Confluence? Are there scanners with a compatible interface?

We're looking for an easy way to take handwritten notes in meetings, etc. and be able to scan and upload them directly (easily) into JIRA/Confluence and create pages with the OCR'd information/text.

I don't think anything like that exists out of the box. You could probably script an ocr package to scan things and then you upload it.

the better thing might be to use Gliffy to do the diagrams on a projector.

Confluence can import HTML files, so if you can find an OCR program that outputs Text or HTML files you should be pretty good to go.
