Is it possible to integrate a signature element in to a custom form?
I'm using Sharepoint 2013 on premises. I'm using a List for training forms and am researching the viability of using signatures written on to a tablet screen. The purpose is to sign-off training records while on the factory floor, immediately after the training has been given.
How is the signature verified? Is it compared to a stored signature elsewhere in Sharepoint? Can a tablet be used for the signature sign-off or is a 'plug-in' device needed?
Please note - using InfoPath or Nintex forms is not an option for me.
I've found lots of free software on .cnet, but a recommendation from someone who has successfully some free software would be useful.

- This is the current training form.
Problem - trainees forget their passwords since they might only have to sign every few months. Most trainees work in the factory and do not work on computers. In order for their name to be picked in the form, they have been set up with 'shell' Active Directory profiles, solely so their name shows up in Sharepoint. There is a legal aspect - these training records are important, we need to show that trainees have been trained and have acknowledged this by signing off their training. Currently the trainee needs a username + password to sign off.
- Below is the 'redeveloped' form I envisage. The key difference is the way it validates the sign-off by the Trainee and the Trainer. The username + password would be replaced by a hand-written signature. The signature is captured in a field in the form. The trainee signature needs to be validated vs a stored trainee signature (stored elsewhere in Sharepoint).
Signature field for Sharepoint Lists - seems useful, though I'm not sure it covers the validation element I require.
