Radio and television interference

Important: This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rulesu Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (I) This device may not cause hamTfijI interference, and (2) this device must accept any irrterference received, including
interference that may cause undesired operation.

The equipment described in this manual generates, uses, and
can radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not installed and

used property—that is, in strict accordance with Apple's
instaictions—it may cause interference with radio and television reception.

This equipnrrent has been tested and found to comply with
the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the

specifications in Parti 5 of FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable protection against such
interference in a residential installation. However, there is no

guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation.

You can determine whether your computer system is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the computer or one of the peripheral
devices.

If your computer system does cause interference to radio or

television reception, try to correct the interference by using
one or more of the following measures:

1

• Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference
stops.

• Move the computer to one side or the other of the
television or radio.

• Move the computer ferther away fiiom the television or
radio.

• Plug the computer into an outlet that is on a different

circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain
the computer and the television or radio are on circuits

controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)

If necessary , consult your authorized Apple dealer or an
experienced radio/television technician for additional

suggestions. You may find helpful the following booklet,
prepared by the Federal Communications Commission:

Interference Handbook (stock number 004-000-00345-4). This booklet is available finom the Ui. Govenvnent Printing
Office. Washington, CX: 20401

Important Changes or modifications to this product not
authorized by Apple Computer. Inc. could void the FCC

Certification and negate your authority to operate the
product

This product was tested for FCC compliance under
conditions that included the use of shielded cables and

connectors between system components. It is important that
you use shielded cables and connectors to reduce the

possibility of causing interference to radios, televisbn sets, and

other electronic devices. For Apple peripheral devices, you

can obtain the proper shielded cables from your authorized
Apple dealer. For non-Apple peripheral devices, contact the
manufacturer or dealer for assistance.

Begin transforming my handwriting: If you prefer to
see the recognizer transform your writing quickly, slide the

diamond toward "immediately;" if you find rt distracting, slide
the diamond toward "after a delay." I write words with letters: If you separate the letters in a word, as in printed writing, slide the diamond toward "disconnected;" if you connect your letters, as in cursive
writing, slide the diamond toward "connected."

Leam my ¥friting style as I write: Newton can improve its recognition by analyzing your writing. Mark this box to turn

you may wsh to turn off this feature so Newton doesn't start

using their v^ng style to recognize yours. Do not use my writing style: Mark this box to tell the

text recognizer not to use the tips its learned from analyzing
your writing. For example, you may want to mark this box while you let someone else write on your Newton.

Letter Styles preferences

Use the Letter Styles preferences area to improve the speed

IMPROVING TEXT RECOGNITION

T o help improve the speed and accuracy of Newton's text recognition, try any of the following:

•T each Newton how you draw your letters ("Letter Style
Preferences," earlier in this chapter).

•T ell Newton how fest it should interpret your writing and
whether you connect your letters as you write

("Handwnting Style Plieferences," eariier in this chapter).

22

m

• Allow Newton to analyze your handwriting as you write ("Handwriting Style Preferences," eariier in this chapter).
• Follow the hints for better handwriting ("Hints for Better Handwriting," later in this chapter).

• Practice your handwriting ("Practicing Writing," later in this
chapter).

• Set your preferences as follows ("Interpreter Preferences."
eariier in this chapter): Turn on Words and turn off Non-

dictionary Words. Turn off as nrjany of the following as
possible: Numbers, Phone Numbers, Dates, and Time Of Day.

• Review your word list which Newton uses to recognize wonds. Removing words you don't use—especially short
ones—speeds up recognition; to save you the effort of correcting words while you're talcing notes, add them to

the word list now. "(Revievwng Your Vocabulary List" later
in this chapter.)

Hints rdr better handwriting

• Write capital letters and tall letters (such as t and I) so they
use the whole height of the line. Other letters should be half as high. • Put a full character's width of ^ace between words Also
avoid extra width which can cause Newton to insert a tab.

• Write in straight lines • When dotting your i's, keep the dot close to the i. Make
sure it doesn't look like an accent mark

• When you cross t's, make sure you don't cross any other
tall letters. Make the cross horizontal, not slanted.

• Don't scrunch words at the edge of the screen.
• Make parentheses bigger than tall letters.

• Don't go back to a letter you've already written to
improve it

• Don't pause for long in the middle of writing a word.
• To put a tab between columns, v^it for the text to be

recognized, pause for another second, then skip some
space and continue writing.

• Write from left-to-right
• Use thicker ink for best recognitioa You can choose ink

thickness by going to the Extras drawer and tapping Styles.
• Keep punctuation close to the word If it turns into an I, you're leaving too much space between the word and the
punctuation.

• Write colons and sennicolons from top to bottom and make them as tall as capital letters.
• Write exclamation points the same size as tall letters. Reviewing your ust of words Every time you connect a misinterpreted word, Newton sees
whether the correct word is in its list of words. If not it asks if

you want to add the word to the list—your own list of words—so rt can recognize it later. You may want to remove words from the list because the
longer the list gets and the more short words it contains, the slower the interpreter works; or you may want to add words

to the list to ensure Newton can recognize thenn

COMPLEHNG THE CALL

After you tell Newton to place a call, as explained in the
previous section, a box appears to confimn your choices:

I. If you want to use the modem to place the call, make sure the both the modem and you telephone are
connected. See the modem manual for details.

6. If you're dialing through the speaker, tap Call and hold the mouthpiece of your phone near Newton's speaker holes (by the Apple logo). If you're dialing through the modem, tap Call, wait until the modem finished dialing,
then pick up your telephone handset
CALLING OPTIONS

You set your calling options by tapping the Options button, as
described in the previous section.

@

Area code: The area code of the phone at which you're placing the call. If the phone number you're calling has a
different area code, Newton dials " I" and the area code.

Prefix: Any sequence that must be dialed before the phone
number. For example, nnany office phones require you to dial

9 for an outside line. For a one-second pause in dialing, write
a conrvrn.

Access Code: The access code for your preferred long distance company (if it's something other than " I"). T ap the

diamond for a list of popular U.S. long-distance caniers. If you
fill in a number here, Newton will use this instead of" I"

when dialing a long-distance number.

Credit Card: The calling card number (if any) you want to
bill the call to. Newton will pause a few seconds and will
then dial the card number.

Newton has an Intelligent Assistant which can sinnplrfy your

work. The Assistant can infer important infomnation to help
cany out your requests.

What you can request Y ou can use any of the following request words (or synonynns listed in "Synonynns, Examples, and Confimiation Slips" later in
this chapter):

• call: dial a phone number

• liax: send a fax (requires a Newton fax modem)
• find; search for text

• mall: send the item on your screen as electronic mail (requires a Newton modem)

• print: print the Item on your screen (requires a printer)
• rememben add a reminder to you to-do list • schedule: add an appointment to you calendar

1

• time: look up the time for a city or country If you add more applications to Newton, they may come with
their own request words. Helping the assistant

The Assistant uses the infomnation in the Name RIe (Chapter 3) to infer important infomnation for your requests. For example, it can figure out the whole name fiiDm just the first
or last name, and it can detemiine the phone number or
address from the name.

The more complete your Name RIe, the more help the
Assistant can be.

Caution: When you replace the main batteries, pay
attention to the following points:

• Before you begin, make sure the backup battery is fresh
and in place. The backup battery protects the infomnation

in Newton's memory while you're replacing the main
batteries.

• Take care to Install the batteries v^ the correct +/-

^ polarity, as illustrated on the plastic and metal battery
holder. If you install batteries backward (>A^h the + side

pointing the wrong way round), the batteries may leak and

Conserving power

Newton automatically conserves power by turning off its circuits when they're not in use. You can extend battery life further by doing the following: • Turrj Newton off when you're not using it • Set a shorter time before Newton turr^s itself off. (See "Adjusting the Sleep Ttme" later in this chapter.) • Plug in the power adapter whenever you can. • Avoid using beanriing and the communication port when
Newton is not plugged in. These features use a lot of
p o w e r.

• If you use rechargeable battery packs, follow the
instructions that conne with them.

Adjusting the sleep time

T o save power, Newton automatically tunre itself off— "goes
to sleep"—after you haven't used It for a while. To set the

amount of time before Newton goes to sleep, follow these
