    Handwriting Recognition in Office 2003

    Hi there, I've been asked by a customer to find a way for them to use handwriting recognition in Office 2003 running on Windows XP.

    From what I can tell for this to work they'd need to be running Tablet PC edition.

    I was just wondering whether anyone has come across this and came up with a solution, I know ActivInspire allows you to use handwriting recognition within itself but really I need it to be within Office.

    Nope, no need for any extras or for Tablet PC edition, just need the right language (English is one of those languages, so you should be safe). What they will need is a Wacom tablet or similar.

    Once you have added the Hand-Writing Recognition feature of Office 2003, you will be able to use your Promethean ActivBoard to perform this.

    Cheers for that guys, got as far as installing handwriting recognition only for the handwriting tablet on the language bar not to work.

    Turns out Office 2003 SP3 breaks handwriting recognition, the fix was to copy PENUSA.dll from a machine without SP3, this fixed it and everything is working fine now.
