You may want to specifically contact Dr. Rocha in Brazil at the University of Pelotas, as he has been working on a Palm top reader which reads SW Shorthand.  It was in development when I was working down there and he was quite excited.

For sometime I've been putting together user requirements (i.e. my own)
for a PalmOS application that would allow me to capture signed
conversations/notes in the field.

It is no more than requirements at present. No design work, no
programming, no coding, no product. If others want to discuss this
then I'd be delighted to do so. (Maybe off list?)

A primary requirement in my Palm project is compatability with SW4.4.

Is SW5.0 still actively "under development"? [I suspect this is a
rhetorical question.] Personally I don't see Java as a viable choice for
PalmOS programming (or indeed any sort of programming but that's not a
battle to be fought here).
