Chapter 8. Using Word 2002's Speech Cont... > Using Word's Handwriting Features

Using Word's Handwriting Features

Occasionally, you may want to take handwritten notes, or you may simply prefer handwriting to typing. If you have a graphics tablet compatible with Windows, Word 2002 can read and recognize the handwritten text you create using your tablet and translate it into onscreen text you can format and edit.

Note

You can also use Word's handwriting support with a mouse, but most users find it quite clumsy to write accurately with a mouse, and the resulting handwriting may be more difficult for Word 2002 to recognize.

Handwriting recognition is also available for Word 2002 in the following languages: English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. It works in all major Office XP applications.
