CIC offers two "killer data entry tools": Jot & WordComplete
Jot is an advanced handwriting recognition software, that
can eliminate the need to learn "Grafitti". Jot
is just what the name implies. You can easily, Jot words,
individual letters - both upper and lower case, numbers, gestures,
symbols, and accents. Data input feels more natural: No more
special symbols or characters to memorize. Jot allows all
PDA users to input text more naturally. Jot also supports
most of the Graffiti-based characters.
Feeling cramped by the small Graffiti area? Jot has full-screen
support allowing users to input text on the full screen or
in the input panel area.
It has a wonderfully simple user-interface. There is no need to
change modes to get capital letters! With Jot where you write determines
if the character will be read as upper case, lower case, numeric
or a symbol. Jot enables users to use the center area of the screen
to get capital letters. And you can see what you're writing on the
The built in recognizer helps users improve their accuracy by enabling
characters to be viewed in ink as they are written. Jot supports
International character recognition of Roman-based western European
languages and accent marks!
With Jot's Macro Editor, you can define frequently used phrases
(such as "vital signs stable") or actions (such as copy
or paste and copy) for quicker text entry and editing.
Jot's intuitive character recognition simplifies and speeds data
entry freeing the clinician to focus on patient care.
Jot provides an extensive animated tutorial demonstrating how to
write letters and symbols and offers practice sessions for each
function. A tuner capability allows the user to select individual
letters that cause difficulty with the strokes. A good example is
"Y" which can be produced by two methods: first draw a
"V", and then a straight line down from the base to complete
the letter; or you can draw one stroke slanted like the beginning
of a "V", then one total stroke finishing the "V"and
adding the tail.
Simple to download, install and learn, you'll be "Joting"
in no time!
