    How does this work for you after the fall update?

    I posted a question in the Cortana forum (but there have been much in the way of comments), but I thought I'd ask here as well for your thoughts.

    It's easy. You open Cortana click on the lightbulb button; then create a reminder. you should see a box click it and it will go into handwriting mode.

    Yup that's easy to do

    then create a reminder
    Done that, but say I create a reminder, I click the 'remember too...' box with the pen, but it doesn't go into handwriting mode. I can being up the handwriting 'keyboard' up manually, but that's not what the screenshots show.

    Apparently...

    It is only available in the insider builds right now. You have to subscribe as an insider and install the latest build from Microsoft to get this option.

    Not true. I am not running Windows Insider. It is part of the Nov update that was released last week.

    Here is what it supposed to look like.

    If you can't do this, then you probably don't have the Nov update yet. MSFT pushed out some other updates in conjunction with the Nov update.

    Working flawlessly after the Nov. Update! New SP3 user here.

    Off-topic, one nice feature I discovered was the personalized handwriting recognition feature for Portuguese, my mother language. Wasn`t there first time I tried accessing it (I had only the Portuguese keyboard installed at this time). Then I installed the whole Portuguese language pack and thought, ok, maybe I got this now. Nothing. Then I uninstalled the language pack, deleted the Portuguese keyboard, cause in onenote I suddenly couldn`t handwrite using the Portuguese keyboard, and finally reinstalled only the Portuguese keyboard, leaving the English one of course as my main windows language setup. Voila. The personalized handwriting recognition feature appeared and I`m very, very happy, as you can imagine. Even setup a reminder with Cortana handwriting. Good luck guys. Hope this helps.

    Is this available in UK? I am running 1511 ( 10586.11 ) and this does NOT appear on my SP3.
    Cortana never speaks either. I think Cortana outside of the US is still very limited

    Oh, I see. No I don't think the UK got it. At least the Cortana part. Cortana is still being rolled out for non-US users. It's kinda like how it rolled out when Microsoft updated its phones from Windows Phone 8 to Windows Phone 8.1. Cortana was US only, then as more languages became available, they pushed it out to those users.
