Hi all,
I suggest that all of you that are having problems
with your HWR should try the "Corrector+" package.
It's free!!! It's available to download at
I set it up to recognize the II to " and voil!!! It
worked wonderfully!!! I think you all should try it!
I also had a problem with the Newton HRW engine! Every
time I write an "o" solely, the newton recognize it
like an "0" (zero). Then I installed the Corrector+
and my problems are gone!

I also have a question about the Cursive HWR! Does it
recognize special characters like "", "", "", ""
etc.? Or its is just recognized by the Printed HWR
