“The tablets, to be useful, need a good handwriting recognition program.”
That’s something I don’t understand. On my iPAQ, several years ago, I could jot notes with the stylus and it converted them very well to text. But I can’t find a similar capability for my Toshiba Thrive.
I found one that will record my handwritten note, but it records it as handwriting - a picture, not text.
Doesn’t make sense.
Hand writing recognition is a very difficult thing for computers to do, just because there are an infinite ways anybody can write down a paritcular letter or number and computers aren’t very good at accounting for individual differences.
