Q: I want to order this and it would be my first Mimio product. Would I be able to use it?
A: Actually no, this Mimio Pad does not include a wireless receiver or software. If you have the Mimio Teach, you can use the receiver and software that came with the Teach. If you don't have a Teach, please contact us and we can configure the best solution for you.
Q: Does the MimioPad wireless tablet work with the other MimioClassroom products?
A: The MimioPad tablet is a member of the MimioClassroom family. It can interact with the MimioTeach system and MimioStudio 10 software in Windows, Mac and Linux. MimioPad cannot currently interact with the MimioVote assessment system, the MimioView document camera or the MimioCapture ink capture system. The MimioPad tablet communicates through its own wireless receiver, which is inserted into an open USB port on a PC
Q: I use both a PC and a Mac; can the same Mimio hardware be used on both? Is there also software for each platform?
A: Yes, the same Mimio Classroom products can be used for both PC and Mac.
Yes, there is different software for each platform that can be downloaded from the Support tab of the mimio.com web site
Q: What is Writing Recognition software?
A: The Writing Recognition feature within Mimio Studio can be used to convert live writing into editable text (to enter text into applications during interactive use) or as a post-processing tool to convert previously written notes into editable text in a Notebook file.
There are two Text Tools within mimio Studio which support live writing conversion: Write Anywhere and Writing Pad. These tools can be selected by right-clicking on the Text Tool icon in the Windows notification area in the lower right corner of the screen.
The post-processing writing recognition tool requires handwritten notes to be selected within mimio Notebook. Once handwritten notes are selected, right-click within the selected notes and choose the option to Recognize Ink.
