The Smart Notebook program enables users to add written and drawn notes on presentation files. The application interacts with a Smart Board during the interactive presentation. The Smart Board contains an interface that captures the activity related to a specific presentation and embeds the translated text and images in the notebook file. Users running earlier versions of Smart Notebook or on Mac computers access files in NBK or XBK formats. You must convert Notebook files to an earlier format to use on other computers with Smart Board or contact the developer, Smart Technologies, to convert the file through e-mail support.
