The Touchpad now accepts Chinese handwriting input, but why no English handwriting input?

As seen in this recent video on YouTube:
Link to video: HP Touchpad

The uploader apparently was writing stuff in Chinese with his fingers and the Touchpad
recognised it without any problems. Only wish I can do that with English!

Windows mobile 6 had superb english handrwriting recognition on my Asus A686 with resistive touchscreen. Seems with the advent of capacitive screens, though, the idea of handrwriting recognition on mobile devices got dropped, except for languages where I suppose a soft keyboard is just way too clumsy. It's a shame.

Ironically, Amazon's free Android app of the day about a week ago was Graffiti from Access - yes, the same Graffiti from PalmOS days Surprisingly, it works pretty good by finger.

Have you seen my handwriting? The developers took one look and said "it would be easier to handle chinese characters", so China can thank me for the inspiration!

I then used WebOS Doctor to reset my TouchPad. I then followed the procedure exactly and redid it but I got the same probelm. TouchPad cannot reboot itself.

Would you please give me some advices? Chinese Handwriting is important to me. Your help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Swak6287:

I let my TouchPad reboot overnight and it didn't success. It hang there forever. I start to suspect the handwriting patch is not for my TouchPad. My OS version is webOS 3.0.4.

Any advice!

send me a PM with your e-mail, then I will send you the Chinese file for 3.0.4 --- yes, you .
need a different patch for 3.0.2 and 3.0.4. The file is a little over 6MB. Or you can search for it on the Chinese website Treo8. There is also a thread on "Baidu input" in this forum. Search for it.

I have that patch installed, and can find only 2 minor problems with it:

1.)Secondary characters on the keyboard don't work in the terminal and Ubuntu.
2.)To uninstall you have to see the doctor.

except handwriting, dont know the other input methods so cant comment on them. personally the good bits are:
- word selection problem with handwriting input in previous version now corrected
- supports traditional chinese input and display
- have to adjust 'writing speed' in handwriting setting under ime setting. otherwise it will only recognize writing strokes instead of complete words

but should also note the following:
- once installed, cannot be removed unless doctored
- chinese ime will become the default keyboard
- occasionally all keys will become totally blank and unusable. must luna restart to resume normal
- new problem with 'word association'. associated word(s) are selected automatically unless you press backspace. i have entirely switched this function off ('no association')

HansTWN:

I have downloaded and installed the patch version 3.0.4. It works now. Thanks a lot for the information and of course to the original developer.

However, when I tried to open a Chinese .epub novel, I still cannot open it. Any one knows any app. can read Chinese .epub file? Thanks.

-Steven
