Chapter 3. Typing Without a Keyboard > Executive Tip Summary

3.8. Executive Tip Summary

  • For best accuracy, make your Graffiti strokes large enough to fill the writing area.

  • For even more accuracy, put a piece of Scotch tape over the Graffiti area—you get a less slippery, more controlled, more paperlike surface to write on.

  • To analyze what you're doing wrong (in times of recognition inaccuracy), install TealEcho, which shows you what the PalmPilot is "seeing" you draw for each Graffiti character.

  • The Graffiti alphabet is easy to learn, but if it's frustrating you, consider teaching it to recognize your own letter shapes using TealScript—or switching to a more natural-looking alphabet, such as Jot.

  • Consult the inner covers of this book, which reveal over 85 alternative Graffiti shapes. Many are far faster to draw (although less recognizable as letters) than the traditional Graffiti shapes.

  • Draw your V shape from the right side for perfect accuracy every time.

  • Store frequently used phrases as ShortCuts. (Tap Applications Prefs. From the upper-right pop-up menu, choose ShortCuts.) Include a space after each expanded word to save additional time.
