Page 32

With the battery pack attached to FIVA The battery pack is charged while the AC adaptor is connected and plugged into a power outlet, regardless of whether or not the FIVA is turned on... Turn off FIVA and charge the battery pack for about two hours... Turning on FIVA power before full charge is attainted can result in only a partial charge...

Page 33

FIVAs lamp lights amber when charging starts, and turns green when charging is complete... If the lamp goes out during charging, it can mean that FIVAs protection circuit has cancelled the charge operation... If this happens, remove the battery pack from FIVA and then reattach it to resume charging... The lamp going out frequently during charging indicates malfunction, and you should contact your original dealer or authorized distributor...

Page 34

FIVAs is equipped with power management functions that automatically go into a low-power standby or hibernation mode if you do not perform any screen touch or keyboard operation for about 10* minutes... Input data on the screen when the low-power Standby or Hibernation is entered is automatically saved, so the screen reappears on the display when you recover from a low power mode...

Page 35

These methods differ in the amount of power consumed while power is off and the amount of time it takes before Windows 98 is ready to be used from any of the power off states... An understanding of these differences will help you decide which one you should use...

Page 36

In this mode, Windows 98 is completely shut down and FIVA is consuming almost no battery power... This mode extends battery life but requires that Windows 98 be restarted from the very beginning to restore power... This means that the status of Windows 98 or any application that is running is not maintained in memory when the Power Off Mode is entered... Enter the Power Off Mode if you do not plan to use FIVA for a long time and before installing expansion memory...

Page 37

In the Standby Mode, the LCD and other devices are put into a suspend state... The status of Windows 98 and any applications that are running is retained in memory, so they can be restored and used immediately after leaving the Standby Mode... This means that Windows 98 is restored within the shortest time from this mode, but it also means that this mode requires more power consumption than that of the other two modes... The Standby Mode is best when you plan to be away from the computer for only a short time and need to immediately pick up from where you last left off when you return... Tappling the keyboard or other controls on FIVA automatically recovers from the Standby Mode...

Page 38

Windows 98 data and data for the application you are using are written to FIVAs hard disk... This process takes some time to complete, after which FIVA powers down automatically after which FIVA enters the Hibernation Mode, and almost all power is cut off... Press the power switch again to recover from the Hibernation Mode... This causes the CASIO logo to appear, followed by the Windows 98 screen that was saved to the hard disk... The Hibernation Mode is recommended when you do not plan to use your computer for a long time, but you want to restore the status of Windows 98 and your applications when you return...

Page 39

Chapter 2 Using FIVA This chapter explains how to turn on power and per- form a number of basic computer operations...

Page 41

Before actually using the stylus to perform screen operations, be sure to first clean the tip of the stylus and the screen...

Writing on any part of the FIVA screen creates electronic ink, which is then recognized and interpreted by smARTwriter... Finally, the results are sent to the active application as if they were typed using a keyboard...

Page 48

Using Quick Trainer Quick Trainer is an application you can use to teach smARTwriter your particular style of writing, which helps to improve recognition results... It takes less than five minutes to complete one Quick Trainer session...

Page 49

4... Copy each character into the slot or box directly under it, one character in each slot... If you make a mistake, re-write the letter or character...

Page 59

application shortcut already exists... If there are no application shortcuts yet, the New Shortcut option is selected automatically... What happens next depend on whether you selected New Shortcut or Existing Shortcuts in step 3 of the above procedure...

Page 60

Library The collection of characters and shapes recognized by smARTwriter is called the Library of Models... smARTwriter contains a pre-defined Library of Models with over 371 distinct characters... smARTwriter recognizes handwriting primarily by comparing the shape and direction of flow of individual characters you write to a set of character shapes (models) stored in the Library of Models... Every time you train smARTwriter, you add character models to the Library of Models... To improve recognition, you should periodically use Library Manager to delete redundant or unnecessary models from the library...

Page 61

Library Models This box lists all the characters, gestures, macros, and shortcuts in the library... It lets you select a specific character and review its associated models... To view the models associated with a specific character, select a category from Type of Models list... Then tap a character in the Library Models list... The database of models for the character you select appears in the Models Box...

Page 62

Using the Libraries Window Use the Libraries Window to create new libraries, open an existing library (change the active library), and to copy and delete libraries... The icons on the top of the Libraries Window represent New (create), Open (change), Copy, and Delete...

Page 63

Enhanced recognition of English Checking this box enables the smARTwriter linguistic layer, which allows smARTwriter to recognize rules and guidelines for the English language... For example, if the g in reading is written very similar to a y, the linguistic layer knows that iny is not a common ending in English and that ing is a more probable combination... Therefore, smARTwriter outputs reading as the recognized word... Enhanced Recognition of English is checked by default... You should disable this option if you are not writing standard or plain English text...

Page 64

Ink Width Use this setting to change the width of the ink... Tap the up or down arrow to change the width within the range of 1 to 5 points...

Page 65

Ink Filter Use these settings to correct ink patterns and help improve recognition... Smooth out jagged ink Check this option to eliminate dotting and make electronic ink appear smooth... For optimal recognition, make sure that this setting is the same for both writing and training sessions... Eliminate random ink spikes Check this option to remove sharp ink edges, making the edges of the electronic ink appear rounded... For optimal recognition, make sure that this setting is the same for both writing and training sessions...

Page 66

Constraints This tab lets you turn recognition filters on and off... Turning on filters helps to improve recognition... As explained previously, smARTwriter searches through a large number of symbols in the Library of Models to find a match for each character you write... If you are inputting only characters from a certain group (lower case, numerals, etc... ), you can constrain (limit) the search to those character groups and minimize recognition errors... To constrain the search, uncheck the character set(s) you are not using... You may check or uncheck any combination of sets to fit your writing style...
