Microsoft Windows Tablet PC Recognizer Pack

Discussion in 'Tablet PC' started by Linda A. Epstein ~ MS MVP, Sep 15, 2003.

  1. Microsoft Extends Multilanguage Support for the Tablet PC
    Two New Multilanguage Options Are Available for Enterprise and Individual
    Tablet PC Users
    Microsoft Press Release

    Microsoft Corp. today announced the availability of extended language
    support to provide enhanced multilanguage functionality for the Microsoft®
    Windows® XP Tablet PC Edition. The Microsoft Tablet PC Multilingual User
    Interface & Recognizer Pack (MUIRP) allows users or administrators to switch
    user interface settings (e.g., menus, dialog boxes and help files) to
    multiple languages and allows installation of multiple handwriting and
    speech recognition languages on a single Tablet PC. This functionality
    greatly eases information technology (IT) administration in multilingual
    computing environments and considerably lowers the cost of desktop change
    and configuration management.

    MUIRP functionality is available as a preinstall option from Microsoft
    Tablet PC original equipment manufacturers or through Microsoft corporate
    licensing programs. In response to consumer demand, Microsoft also announced
    a stand-alone release of the Tablet PC Recognizer Pack. The Recognizer Pack
    allows customers to increase the number of handwriting and voice recognition
    languages on their Tablet PCs.

    The Full Press Release is here:

    Microsoft Windows Tablet PC Recognizer Pack
    Order the CD over the Web

    The Windows Tablet PC Recognizer Pack is now available to Windows XP Tablet
    PC Edition individual users. The Recognizer Pack provides nine
    handwriting-recognition engine languages and four speech-recognition
    languages. Installing the Recognizer Pack on a Tablet PC gives a user the
    ability to convert handwriting and speech in multiple languages from digital
    ink and speech to typed text on a single PC. For instance, if both German
    and French recognizers are installed on a Tablet PC, digital ink written in
    both German and French can be converted into typed text with greater

    Besides providing additional recognizers to Tablet PC customers, the
    Recognizer Pack updates the Tablet Input Panel, allowing users to select any
    Windows input language keyboard. This gives users access to the correct soft
    keyboard for the input language selected.

    These language recognizers are included in the Tablet PC Recognizer Pack:

    * Handwriting recognizers: UK English, U.S. English, French, German,
    Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese
    * Speech recognizers: English, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional

  6. The single download is for all languages. After you download it and begin
    setup you will be given the option to pick what languages you want to
    install speech and handwriting recognizers for. Spanish (International
    Sort) will be on that list. The readme contains good information on how use
    the Reco Pack once it has been installed, so I would encourage users to read
    through it.

  7. Hi Fritz,
    I checked out your FAQ and it looks like you may be mistaking MUIRP with
    Tablet Reco Pack. MUIRP is still only available through Volume Licensing
    and OEM channels. Tablet Reco Pack is what was released this morning and is
    for end users.

  8. Dustin,

    Yes, it's hard keeping track, I'll correct.

    And thank the folks at MS for the Individual User Release.

    Are there any significant improvements in the English recognizers that worth
    downloading the pack (just for the purpose of upgrading the English)?

    Avner Ben, Sep 16, 2003
  15. Susanne,

    You can change the TIP keyboard to German. Do a search in the TIP Help
    Files for :

    "Language Bar" and you will find instructions to change keyboards between a
    number of languages.

    Hope this helps,
    Fritz Switzer, Sep 16, 2003
  16. The English recognizer is the same one that shipped with Tablet PC.

    The only new feature you would get by choosing to install English only would
    be the new TIP. The new TIP supports multiple languages for the Keyboard.
