What text input method does PPC use?
      #20220 - 06/09/05 06:07 PM

I'm thinking about moving from Palm to Windows, probably the Axim. I've read Tanker Bob and other people's views, but there's one thing I don't ever remember seeing mentioned: What text input method is used for the Axim? I've got a Tungsten T3, but I've installed Tealscript because I wanted to stay with the original Graffiti (or, in fact, an improved version of it). Is there Tealscript or an equivalent for Windows PDAs? How does the default system compare to Graffiti 1?

Pocket PCs come with several handwriting recognitions apps: on-screen keyboard, a clone of Grafitti 1, another more natural print recognition system and script recognition (works OK if you have good handwriting). There are several 3rd party solutions as well, should none of those work for you.

To be a little more specific, my iPAQ has 4 options:

1. Block recognizer (approximately the same as Graffiti 1)
2. Letter recognizer (approximately the same as Graffiti 2)
3. Transcriber (reminiscent of the Newton)
4. On-screen keyboard.

I don't know for sure if Dells are exactly the same, but it is likely that they are.

Thanks for the elaboration. Yes, the Dell is the same- the HWR software is standarized and comes from Microsoft rather than individual manufacturers.
