Chapter 22. Working with Input Devices > Installing and Using an Ink Device

Installing and Using an Ink Device

Since version 10.2, Mac OS X has supported handwriting recognition, meaning you can input text and graphics using a pen and tablet device. This is accomplished through Mac OS X's Ink technology. When you install an Ink-compatible device, an Ink pane appears in the System Preferences utility; you use this to configure how you want handwriting recognition to work. Then, you can input directly into most applications or input into the InkPad application and paste the content into another application.

Installing a Tablet

Tablet devices enable you to input information and execute control using a pen-type mouse you use to “write” on the tablet.
