Personal Word List

A editable list of words that the Newton OS uses in addition to the built-in system dictionary. Word lists are used to evaluate text entered by the user when handwriting recognition is enabled. The personal word list is also known as a user dictionary and may contain recently written words from the auto-add dictionary.
