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 68

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 69

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... You can re-write a letter or character as many times as you need... Make sure you write characters in all the slots provided... Letters that smARTwriter immediately recognizes will be highlighted... The rest will be learned by the recognition system when you tap the Accept button... The bar at the bottom of the window indicates the progress of the session...

Page 70

The shape of the icon indicates the current mode... Pointing Mode ( ) This icon indicates that the stylus operates as a pointing or selection device...

Page 79

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 80

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 81

Page 83

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 84

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 85

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 86

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...
