Using Handwriting Recognition
On tablets and laptops with touchscreens, the touch keyboard can also be used for text input using handwriting recognition. And if you have a touchpad with a stylus, you can also use this feature. Here’s how to switch to and use handwriting recognition from the touch keyboard, using WordPad (found in the Windows Accessory folder in All Apps) as the app in this example.
Tap the text input window or screen.
When the touch keyboard appears, tap the keyboard button.
Tap the stylus button.
Print the text you want to insert with your finger or stylus.
If your printing is misrecognized, tap the correct word from the list (if present).
The text is automatically inserted into your text input area as it is recognized.
Tap the backspace button to remove any erroneous printing.
Tap the spacebar button to add a space.
Tap the Enter (Return) button to start a new paragraph.
Tap to close the keyboard.
