Unless you use the printed recogniser (like me) in which case it doesn't
have to learn anything and works right out the box. I think it can learn a
bit in this mode but I could never get it to learn the number 6 the way I
write it. As a result I now write the number 6 the same way everyone else on
the planet does :-)

Palms are read only devices in my not so humble opinion. Just got rid of
mine thank God!
