Handwriting Recognition - Arabic and Russian


New Member

I am a Student thinking about buying the new Surface Pro 2 for business at university. One reason for me is the handwriting recognition tool. Besides my studies I have been learning arabic and russian since two years. Is there anybody who know about the recognition function in arabic or russian? I already have tested the Surface Pro 2 in a shop next to me, but there only was the arabic and russian keyboard available, not the recognition function for these two languages. Will Microsoft update their languages in Win8 supporting the arabic and russian handwriting recognition? (Is it already available?) - I just found more information about Win7 handwirting recognition: Which languages are available WIN7 - Microsoft Support

Thank you for your help! :)
