Decuma OnSpot Now Available for Palm OS
Decuma has begun selling their OnSpot input software for all high resolution Palm OS devices, previously only found on select Clies. Decuma's OnSpot input system is an alternative to built in handwriting recognition.
OnSpot Technology is based upon the patented Geometrical Invariant Technology (GIT), which offers several advantages compared with traditional methods for handwriting recognition, such as directly using the same input area for writing, presentation of recognized letters, and editing/formatting of text.
Decuma's software focuses on the human writing process and allows easy and fast handwriting input of all characters used in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Swedish. Users can define their own symbols, or 'short cuts,' and add personal characters at their desire.
OnSpot Technology is different from other handwriting recognition technology because it allows the user to directly use the same input area for correction, editing, and formatting.
Handango now lists Decuma OnSpot Handwriting Recognition as a new downloadable program available for $29.99 with a $5 discount until the end of the year. Previously, one could only for get the software bundled with an OS 5 Sony Clie. It is now available for all high resolution Palm OS 5 handhelds. It requires 480k of free memory.
