|Hi-Tech WriteScreen® Software|
Hi-Tech WriteScreen® is a tablet software, simple but useful Windows application that
lets you write annotation on the display screen, provides multiple pages
of whiteboard for writing. Its tool bar is displaying on the topmost
position; i.e. on top of all applications in display such that it is accessible all the time. You can
move the tool bar to any location where it does not block your view of
running other applications; or change its layout in horizontal or
vertical style. The tool bar has icon button commands for easy access. The commands are also associated with short cut keys
for quick operation. All written traces, ink strokes, are objects that
they can be moved, copy and pasted, or be erased in group selected
