Yesterday Stan Segers from ReSQueL (his weblog: My Torn datapages) brought me his Wacom tablet. A kind of drawing tablet, so not a tablet PC. But interesting enough to try the handwritingfeature and installing options in Windows Vista.
The installationin Vista was just plug & play. Inserting the cable in the usb connector and Vista recognised the device and installed the drivers. After that I had to install a driver for automatic calibration of the tablet with the screensize. This driver is over here. Important remark: it is on the American website and not the European one! After installing this driver/app which was done automatically after downloading eveything worked fine.
Handwritingrecognition: Dutch language in English Vista!
And now the most exciting new! I can use dutch handwriting recognition in my english Vista without installing one bit. All the language for handwritingrecognition are already in Vista. Just a matter of setting the right checks in the control panel!
How this done? Well watch my short screencast (in Windows Media and iPod version)!
