Dear Michael,

As someone who couldn't bear to be without my Newton and its unique, even magical ability to read my scrawl, I'm sorry for your current discouragement. Personally, I'd be little short of ecstatic to have Newton-like HWR on every device I own. 

Unfortunately, I lack the technical ability to have been of any help or practical support. I'm unsure what else you need that I could provide but if you think of anything, ask.   :-)

BTW, if you're talking about serving a purpose on the list, I certainly compare badly to most people including you. My Newt is my 2nd brain -- maybe even my first -- and I'm still finding new ways to exploit its amazing design and features, but I have yet to be anything but a wildly enthusiastic consumer. You're offering us the chance to do something revolutionary. 

So, please feel free to stick around, at least until they kick me out for being useless.

"I had to go back and transcribe all of my speech notes from my Newton, which is what I usually use for giving speeches from, because I wasn't sure I was going to be able to read it in this light, so I had to transcribe the notes onto paper. Unfortunately, my Newton is better at reading my handwriting than I am. So, there may be a pause while I try and decipher what I've written."

I joined this list years ago to seek support for extending Newton's
handwriting recognition.  It may have been an implausible project, but it
certainly had no support.

I've found a handful of posts with people actually attempting to innovate
and extend the use of Newton that have been of some interest.  In general
though, especially having forgotten that aim for several years, I'm not
sure I serve much purpose on this list.

Take it easy all,
