Finding Drug Information
You can find the drug information you want using the Graffiti writing
area, the alphabet keyboard or the Find function.
Using the Graffiti Writing Area or Alphabet Keyboard
In the Home State you can quickly find the drug information you want by
writing the name of the drug or class one letter at a time in the Graffiti
writing area or by entering it on the alphabet keyboard. Note: Capitalization, punctuation and spaces are not necessary. If you enter a series of
letters, the application searches for them in sequence. When it encounters a letter for which there is no match, you hear a beep and the
highlight goes to the first list item with the last matched letters. For
example, if you write or enter aciniten (while looking for Akineton) you
go to the first list item starting with aci.

the Drugs list.
