I wouldn't worry about it. I write left-handed, so you can imagine how great
my writing is and my 2100 recognizes everything very well. You'll always
have a few letters (mostly capitals, in my case) that won't recognize well
but you can train the recognizer to recognize your way of writing. Now,
obviously, your letters must be completely formed...close your loops, cross
your T's, etc. I haven't found anything to compare in speed or accuracy with
the Newton.
