The annotator provides a variety of tools that allow the user to project mark ups for any selected input source. These marks cannot be saved at this time.
You can start annotating immediately, by writing on the computer monitor surface with the provided stylus or by using the mouse on the top of the table marked ‘Annotator’ (not the PC mouse in the drawer).
Whatever you write on the screen will be shown on the projector.
Touching the green arrow in the top right corner of the computer monitor with stylus or annotator mouse opens the annotators toolbox. Drawing tools include: Pencil Draw, Ink Color Selection, Line Thickness, Highlight, Line, Arrow, Circle, and Square. The ‘Erase’ and ‘Clear’ buttons facilitate the removal of the notations you’ve made. There is also a ‘Whiteboard’ button that opens up a white surface for you to write on with these tools.
A ‘Freeze’ button will freeze a video or document camera image for markup (note the DVD or tape will continue to run when you do this) use the touch-pad control to pause the player).
The ‘Zoom’ button allows you to select an area on the screen to enlarge, with a second touch releasing the zoom and 'Spotlight' selects an area for emphasis.
The 'Input' button allows you to select a different source so you don’t have to return to the touch-pad to do this.
There are also 'Undo' and 'Redo' buttons.
To stop annotation, select 'Clear' from the tool menu to erase all your annotations and then select 'Annotator Off' on the touch-pad.
