Bradley Music of the Mobile PC Team posts about Vista’s Handwriting Personalization feature which allows for improved handwriting recogniton. He talks about the fact that it does take some investment by the user but that investment does pay off. Apparently, you need to submit 50 sentences or so for best results.
One bright side of submitting a large set of samples (besides the world’s best handwriting reco experience!) is that you never have to resubmit the samples, even when you upgrade your build. The samples migrate using the Windows Easy Transfer wizard (found in Accessories->SystemTools), along with the rest of your personal files and settings.
It is good to know that personalization training is portable.I beleive it is going to be realy interesting to see how users repsond to the personalilzation features.
