    What is CalliGrapher? CalliGrapher version 5.3 from ParaGraph adds natural handwriting recognition capability to your PenCentra 200 for all handwriting styles -- cursive, print or mixed. CalliGrapher analyzes pen strokes written in any application window, converts the pen strokes into text and sends the recognized text to a target application. Employing advanced fuzzy logic and neural net techniques, CalliGrapher recognizes arbitrary alphanumeric strings as well as words from its integrated dictionary.
  • Page 72: Getting Started

    Start CalliGrapher (if it is not already running). To do this, find the CalliGrapher icon on your PenCentra 200 desktop. It looks like this: Double-tap on it (or tap once and then press "Enter").
  • Page 73: The Two Icons Explained

    A check mark appears next to the "Pen" menu item. This confirms that now you can write on the screen: If you tap on "Pen", the ability to use the pen will be turned off, and your stylus will operate as if CalliGrapher is not running. When the pen is turned off, the pen image in the taskbar tray looks like this: To turn the pen back on, just tap on the pen image.
  • Page 74 In the ScreenDraw mode, you can just draw sketches on top of the screen. This mode will be explained later. In any mode you still can use the pen for its regular tasks. For example, double-tapping on the desktop icons or tapping on the dialog box buttons will work as usual.
  • Page 75: Basic Writing And Corrections

    Basic writing and corrections CalliGrapher recognizes whole words and phrases. Here is the whole phrase "The quick brown fox" written while running Microsoft’s Pocket Word: After a short pause, the writing is recognized. Suppose CalliGrapher produces the following: Basic writing and corrections...
  • Page 76 It should be "brown", not "frown". Use the correction gesture to change the text: Note that the direction of the gesture is significant. The gesture should be written from left to right, and the right part should be at least twice as long as the left one, like this: Now the Correction Window appears: Using the Handwriting Recognition Utilities...
  • Page 77 Tap on the word "frown" in the Correction Window. The caret appears under the letter you tapped on. It indicates the place where the changes will be made: Tap on the caret (or double-tap on the word "frown"). The pop-up menu appears: Basic writing and corrections...
  • Page 78 In the top portion of the menu, CalliGrapher gives suggestions for this word, and the word "brown" is among them. When you tap on it "frown" is replaced with "brown" in the Correction Window: All you have to do now is to tap on the "OK" button in the upper right corner of the Correction Window.
  • Page 79: What Is Displayed In The Correction Window

    If the right word didn’t appear in the menu, simply write the desired letter above the wrong one to correct it: What is displayed in the Correction Window? How does CalliGrapher know what do you want to correct when you make a correction gesture? First, if you made a correction gesture just after writing something, and didn’t select any text after that, CalliGrapher assumes you want to correct your last written phrase...

In the following example several words are selected, and will be erased with the gesture. The selected text has been erased: Text Editing Using CalliGrapher...
  • Page 86 To insert a carriage return at the cursor position use the Carriage Return gesture, which resembles a reversed upper case "L". Be sure to extend the length of the base horizontal portion of the stroke to at least twice the down stroke portion. Note that the cursor has moved to the line below the text: Now use the Erase gesture (horizontal line from right to left) to erase the carriage return and bring the cursor back to the end of the phrase.
  • Page 87 The space is inserted: Use the Erase gesture again to remove the unneeded space. As you have learned earlier you can change the case of letters in the Correction Window by using the Case Changing gesture. It is simply an upward vertical stroke while the letter is selected. The same gesture can be used to similarly edit text in any window.
  • Page 88 And the word "quick" becomes "QUICK": To reverse the action just completed use the Undo gesture to return the text to lower case (this is identical to pressing the Alt and Z keys on the keyboard). Note that the two ’legs’ of the gesture have the same length: Using the Handwriting Recognition Utilities...

    How to Select Text Using Pen (Stylus) You can select text with your pen just as you would in the standard mode by pressing on your system display with the stylus and waiting for a "click" sound. With the stylus still pressed to the screen, drag it across the text you wish to select. Lifting the stylus ends the selection, leaving the text highlighted and ready for editing.
