In order to configure the iPad and Manzana Pencil and that allows us to use the function Scribble, the first thing we have to do is add an English keyboard to our iPad. No matter what type of English it is, you can choose United Kingdom (UK), that of USA, that of Singapore… whatever you want. This is because, at the moment, this function is only available for the English language.
We came in Settings / General / Keyboard / Keyboards and click on the option «Add new keyboard». From there we choose the one that we have mentioned before.
Now we will have to go to the settings of the Apple Pencil, which are in Settings / Apple Pencil and activate the Handwriting option.
If you don’t see the Apple Pencil settings menu, sync it first. To do this, connect it to the tablet in the Lightning port.
In the image we can see the menu of 1st generation Apple Pencil. In the of 2nd generation many more configuration options appear.
Now we have configured the apple tablet to try this wonderful novelty that comes with iPadOS 14. We advise you to try it everywhere but, specifically, in the notes app or some app that processes text. It is there where you can do your writing and see how your iPad transcribing everything we write.
To, for example, take notes and then transcribe them, we will simply have to select the handwritten text, copy it as text and then paste it into another note or word processor app. It is a real wonder.
And that’s it, now you just have to wait for this function to be compatible with the Spanish language. Let’s see if it’s sooner rather than later.
