These devices are fully supported by Smart Dog Software.
Palm devices are ubiquitous minimalist PDAs.
To support the following data conversions, install the Palm Converters package:
The CapShare 920 allows accurate optical scanning of black-and-white images, using optical alignment technology instead of the harder-to-use roller technology.
To support these data conversions, install the CapShare Converter package:
Note that the conversion process of TIFF images to Newton faxes is very time-consuming; for convenience, a number of images can be beamed from the CapShare to the Newton, and later translated.
The QuickLink Pen is a convenient single-line scanner and OCR engine that can read a line of printed text at a time and convert it through optical character recognition to ASCII text.
These exchanges are possible with the Palm Converters package:
Note that Address Book entries beamed from the QuickLink Pen to the Newton will not have the Newton Region, Postal Code, and City fields properly set, because the QuickLink Pen doesn't support these fields. Instead, these fields will appear as a second address line.
These platforms are not directly tested by Smart Dog Software, but they are known to work correctly with BackTalk ObEx Stack, and Smart Dog Software will fix defects found in communications with these devices.
QuickBeam includes a vCard translator that can beam name cards to the Newton and can receive name cards from the Newton. The Palm Translators package must be installed for vCard translation,
Smart Dog Software is working to make these platforms supported.
These devices do not work correctly with BackTalk at this time, and are not currently planned to be supported.
