There is a page with some great links and tips regarding Handwriting Recognition (HWR): http://www.conx.com/mp120/ The most common problems that I have seen are: -Writing on a slant -Not lifting the stylus between strokes and letters Also, some letters are just tough for it to do and until you learn what IT wants to see you will have problems with them. For instance, it has trouble differentiating between 2 and Z. Looping your 2 at the base and crossing your Z makes a BIG difference. 1 and l are troublesome, as is most punctuation until you know what it is looking for. The manual has some good tips as well. If it doesn't work for you then it doesn't work but I have gone from about 80% to nearly 100% recognition. As I have stated in this newsgroup before, I make more mistakes typing than the Newton makes with my writing. I have also become a much better printer because of the Newton. THANK YOU NEWTON!
