how to use arabic with tablet PC input panel RRS feed

  • Question



    I use Windows Vista ultimate with English version and want to use tablet PC input panel with Arabic.

    I have already installed arabic language through control panel, but when the input panel is shown and selected with arabic language, only the screen keybord can only be available and the other features unavailable.


    How can I use arabic completely at the input panel?

  • Hi maekawa,


    Windows Vista does not include a handwriting recognition engine for Arabic.


    These are the languages that are available today for handwriting recognition:

    - Portuguese (Brazil)

    - English (USA)

    - German

    - French

    - Korean

    - Japanese

    - Chinese (simplified)

    - Chinese (traditional)

    - English (UK)

    - Dutch

    - Spanish

    - Italian


    We are looking into expanding the list of handwriting recognizers to more languages in future releases of Windows.
