Switching on-screen virtual text input method

14 Jan 2011

The default on-screen virtual text input method in Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5.x is the QWERTY keyboard. On the Mesa Rugged Notepad we have included the other previously available methods such as Transcriber, Letter Recognizer, and Block Recognizer which are useful on the Mesa's large, resistive (works when wet) touchscreen display.

To switch from the virtual QWERTY keyboard to another input method, tap and hold on the Input Method (Keyboard) button in the middle of the bottom "Tile" (Start, Menu) bar until a pop-up menu appears, then select the desired input method. Selecting a new input method will change the device input method for all applications.
