Scanning and Sending Data to the PC in Various Languages

Scanning and Sending Data to the PC in Various Languages

If you wish to use your Pen to scan data in different languages, your PC settings must be configured to support the required language. If the PC is not configured correctly, text that is sent to the PC will appear incorrectly.

To confirm that your PC is set up to support the required language, do the following:

Using Windows XP

  1. Go to Start/Settings/Control Panel and double-click on the Regional and Language Options icon.
  2. Select the Languages tab.
  3. If the language you are scanning in is a non-Western European language, for example, Thai, Hebrew, Chinese, make sure that the "install files for complex script and right-to-left languages" box is checked.
  4. Click on the Details button to open the Text Services and Input Languages window.
  5. In the Settings tab, check that the keyboard of the language you wish to use is installed. If the required language doesn't appear in the Installed services window, click on the Add button and select it from the list.
  6. Click on the OK button to return to the Regional and Language Options window.
  7. Click on the Advanced tab and change the language in the Language for non-Unicode programs box to the language you wish to use.
  8. Scroll down the list of Code page conversion tables and make sure all the relevant conversion tables are checked.
  9. Click on the Apply button to confirm changes.

Using Windows 2000

  1. Go to Start/Settings/Control Panel and double-click on the Regional Options icon.
  2. In the General tab, choose the language you wish to use from the list in Language settings for the system and click on the Set Default button. The Select System Locale window will appear.
  3. Select the required language from the list and click OK.
  4. Click on the Advanced button to open the Advanced Regional Options window and make sure all the relevant conversion tables are checked. Click on the OK button to return to the Regional Options window.
  5. Select the Input Locales tab and check that the keyboard of the language you wish to use is installed. If the required language doesn't appear in the Installed input locales window, click on the Add button and select it from the list.
  6. Click on the Apply button to confirm changes.

Using Windows 98

  1. Go to Start/Settings/Control Panel and double-click on the Keyboard icon.
  2. Select the Languages tab and check that the keyboard of the language you wish to use is installed. If the required language doesn't appear in the Installed keyboard languages and layouts window, click on the Add button and select it from the list.
  3. Click on the Apply button to confirm changes.

To scan text directly to the PC using a different language, the PC must be configured to support the required language (see How do I configure my computer to receive data scanned in various languages?), and the Wizcomtech Desktop must be set to the required scanning language.

To set the Wizcomtech Desktop language:

  1. Launch the Wizcomtech Desktop application.
  2. If the Wizcomtech Desktop is already running and minimized in the Windows taskbar, open the window by clicking on the icon and selecting Show Window.
  3. Switch the keyboard input language to the required scanning language by clicking on the language indicator in the taskbar and selecting the language from the list of available keyboards.
  4. Minimize the Wizcomtech Desktop and return to the Windows application you are using with the Scan to PC application.

Note: If you follow the above procedure and are still unable to view the language correctly, it may be that a different Windows application is causing the Windows default settings to change after startup.

If this is the case, restart Windows and do not activate any other applications while using the Wizcomtech Desktop.

It is important to note that some applications may be activated automatically upon Windows Startup. If so - deactivate them before restarting Windows by modifying the settings within the specific application, or by removing them from the Windows Startup folder (Start/Programs/Startup).
