  • To select individual words, tap or click Type/Selection Tool Type/Selection Tool on the Standard toolbar, and then drag the insertion point over the word or double-tap the word.
  1. On the Tools menu, tap or click Convert Handwriting to Text.
  2. If a word is converted incorrectly, tap or click Type/Selection Tool Type/Selection Tool on the Standard toolbar, tap or click the incorrectly converted word, and then do one of the following:
    • If your Tablet PC is running Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, tap or click the arrow next to the alternate list symbol Button image, and then on the shortcut menu, tap or click an alternate word.
    • If your Tablet PC is running Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 or later, right-click a converted word, and then on the shortcut menu, tap or click an alternate word.

 Note   If the correct word is not included on the shortcut menu, you must either rewrite the word, undo the conversion, or use the Tablet PC Input Panel or the keyboard to re-enter the word. If you have a keyboard available, it may be easiest to retype incorrectly converted text or press F7 to correct misspelled words.
