  1. Handwriting support for English (AUSTRALIA) unavailable


    I have scoured the internet for hours and tried several fixes with no luck.


    I have a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and I'm trying to use draw and general ink tools within Microsoft Word. When I download the Australian English language pack, even though an icon appears in 'Region and Language' settings that it contains handwriting support, when selecting it in language options it says, 'There are no handwriting options for this language'.


    Can someone provide me with a definitive fix / answer for this?


    Cheers

  2. Windows 10 English Australia - Handwriting and Spelling Correction

    Hi,

    I am having a problem with the English Australia language when used for Spelling Correction and Handwriting on a tablet device and Windows 10.

    1 – Handwriting to Text – the handwriting keyboard is not able to be selected from the Touch Keyboard menu in the taskbar.


    2 – Spelling correction – the built in Windows 10 spelling checker will not check spelling when entering text into a website in IE11 or EDGE.

    Through our troubleshooting we have discovered that if the default language is changed to English US both handwriting and spelling correction function correctly.

    I have spoken to a Microsoft Answer Tech who was able to confirm the fault but unable to provide any official statement acknowledging the fault.


    Are Microsoft aware of the fault? Should these features be available when using English Australia as the default language?

    Thank you.

    Nick.

    Surface Pro 3.

  3. Handwriting personalization / Supported characters for English (US) language

    Hi Jacob,

    Since the Handwriting Personalization feature has worked properly before, there's a possibility that recent changes or updates performed on your computer may have triggered this problem or it could be that there is a need for you to improve the handwriting
    recognition on your Surface Pro by providing more samples of your handwriting. Follow these steps:

    1. Navigate to Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region > Language > Language options.
    2. Under Handwriting, click Personalize handwriting recognition.
    3. Select Teach the recognizer your handwriting style.
    4. Several options will be provided to you on what samples do you want to input.
    5. Once done, click Update and exit.
    6. Click Close.

    In case you're still getting the same error when trying to have a word or letter recognized, then you may have to reset the handwriting recognizer and start from scratch. Here's how:

    1. Navigate to Language options > Handwriting.
    2. Under Personalize handwriting recognition > Related Tasks, click
      Delete handwriting samples that you provided for the current language.
    3. Confirm that you want to delete it by clicking Yes, delete my handwriting samples and reset the handwriting recognizer.
    4. Once done, then try to re-establish your handwriting feature again.

    Let me know the result so I can assist you further.

    Regards.

    Handwriting Disabled - "There are no handwriting options for this language."

    Original title: Handwriting Disabled

    I'm running a new SurfaceBook on Windows 10, Australia region, with English Australia as the default language. It says "There are no handwriting options for this language." I tried changing my language to English UK and English US, and it still says the
    same thing. I'm wanting to use this feature in OneNote "Ink to Text". I'm wanting to know how to enable this.
