Touchscreen Support?

Hey Trek,
Does this site support touchscreen? I only ask because I upgraded my 7-yo laptop with a surface pro 2 and it does not support an option where I can pull up a keyboard with the stylus and use handwriting-to-text in any location where I can insert text (including this box, etc.). It's not necessary, but I am curious if there is any way that I can do that as I've fallen in love with the writing-to-text feature on this..
Thanks!

There's nothing on this site specifically setup for touch screen as there shouldn't be a need to do so. Things like buttons, scrollbars, etc... all auto translate by the device/application used to view the page. Anything that would read your handwriting and translate it into text would be on your device. That being said, it's possible that there is an HTML tag/attribute or something that can be added to the input boxes or whatnot on a website that would tell your device to open that handwriting app. I'm not sure what that could be, but if/when I get time, I'll look into it and see if it exists and if so, what it'd take it implement. You could also take a Google search and save me some time too. =)

yea. its not a big deal, but I'll see if I Can find Something that may help. That being said, I am able to do that now so I'm not sure what was my issue last time I tried. It seems to be working this time so I guess I'll monitor it for awhile... Thanks though. It is much appreciated!
