    Using touchscreen to enter text

    I'm not sure where I got this but on the taskbar on my computer, there are icons for speech and text capabilities. I have used it with success in microsoft office (word and excel) and notepad as well as a multitude of other programs by just writing on the screen with a stylus and having it converted to text or dictating stuff in office. I don't know if it will interest you guys but it works for me as I use it to write web address in internet explorer as well as write in word (when I'm not driving). I do not really use the speech capabilities because my music in the car will make it even more inaccurate.

    I'm posting this to see if a lot of people are interested. If so then I will try to find out what it is exactly. There could be a lot of uses including entering text to search for a particular song in ME or MC especially if you have a 10gb database like I do.

    Are you talking about the language bar? Right click on your toolbar, left click on toolbars and left click on language bar. Part of Win XP.

    so you can write on your screen as you would a piece of paper, and it is converted?


    Cool!

    Yes, I would be interested.
