Why Microsoft doesn't think about customer like me who need to have handwriting input not only for English, but gor other languages also?
Ok. For English their Transcriber is good. But what about German (I live in Germany)? Russian (I'm Russian)? Greek (I'm a physicist and need to input Greek characters into formulas from time to time)? When will Microsoft offer suitable solution for multilingual input?
Only imagine! They support 28 different European language at the same small package. All commonly used European languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Greek and Russian (I need)... Eeven Albanian and Icekadic.
And the recognition quality is rather good. By the way, this system hase very amazing feature - handwritten calculator: you write formulas and calculations on the screen, the system recognizes it and gives you the result back.
Why doesn't Microsoft incorporate this amazing system into Pocket PC stopping on "stupid" Calligrapher that doesn't understand anything except English?
