With laptops and gadgets becoming the order of the day, most were ashamed of their handwriting and felt it had worsened. Handwriting or better still scribbling was just meant for those reminders or stick notes that only the writer could understand.

This clearly means that the future generation's ability to communicate will entirely depend on technology and the keyboard.  

 "Technology puts everyone on a level playing field when it comes to the ability to communicate clearly. For business matters and occasions that require speed, clarity and cost efficiency or delivering to a wide audience, a technology-based solution will always be the most beneficial. But even if its usefulness is reduced, it is important that people maintain their ability to communicate without a full reliance on technology,"  researchers said.
