    I was writing into google, just doing a search for "extended english
    dictionary for tablet pc"... because i was testing the tip and noticed
    cellphone isnt a word! so I was wondering if there are any premade
    anyway, I write, half cursive and half print (because ive got no speed with
    cursive) "extended english dictionary for tablet pc"... it showed exactly
    that below my hand writing (i know because i thought it was strange that it
    actually got that!)... and when I look at what I inserted into google's text
    box it says. "intended English dictionary for tablet PC"
    So there is a good test word, I dont know if it would be replicatable but at
    least I saw the word.

    According to dictionary.com - n : a hand-held mobile radiotelephone for use
    in an area divided into small sections (cells), each with its own
    short-range transmitter/receiver [syn: cellular telephone, cellular phone,
    cell, mobile phone]. I think "cellphone" is more or less slang, with cell
    or cellular phone being the more common usage. :cool:

    This happens to me all the time. It get it right, and then it changes
    it to something else if I don't insert it quick enough. When I am
    writing quickly, it behaves better than when I write slowly. I believe
    that is because it finds a better match looking at the whole word or
    words, but that algorithm is incorrect (a bug perhaps).

  4. Actually you're right. The more you write, the better the TIP is able to
    understand the word in the context of the sentence. You'll see the same
    behavior with any recognition application that incrementally recognizes your
    handwriting (like TEO 3). As long as you space your words evenly and
    maintain a consistent height (a midline on the TIP would really help) then
    the results will be pretty consistent. But if the contextual words change,
    the recognition result may differ.

    But as I mentioned before (in this thread or similar one a while ago I
    believe) if you jump down to the next line, the previous line will be
    "locked in" because the TIP only looks at one line at a time when using the
    recognizer. It will also not re-recognize any changes that you made to an
    individual segment.
