  • Patent number: 11033187
    Abstract: A text-to-Braille service is disclosed herein that includes an imaging module. The imaging module includes multiple cameras arranged to image part of a page of text. Each camera has a different field of view of the page, so each camera images a unique portion of the page. The multiple images can be combined to form a single image upon which optical character recognition is performed. The text of the page can be converted into Braille characters and displayed on a refreshable Braille device.

  • Publication number: 20170153905
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media are provided for organizing information pertaining to entity quests in which a user is engaged in an easily retrievable and viewable manner. An active digital memory assistant on a user computing device may automatically detect and organize activity, taken by a particular user and centered on a single user intent, into an entity list. Information comprising a relevant entity list may be proactively surfaced to the user when the user is performing a task for which a related entity list exists. Alternatively, the user may manually invoke the active digital memory assistant (e.g., via selection of an appropriate icon or tile on the user's desktop) to show his or her entity related activity in the form of content previously extracted and actions previously taken.

  • Patent number: 7176114
    Abstract: The invention generally encompasses a method for forming a pattern on a substrate. The method comprises applying a precursor comprising at least one metal to a substrate to form a precursor layer, exposing a predetermined portion of the precursor layer and developing the predetermined portion of the precursor layer. The developing step removes, or at least substantially removes, the predetermined portion from the substrate, thereby forming a pattern on the substrate that comprises a remaining portion of the precursor. In one embodiment, the precursor layer comprises Ti(PriO)2(EAA)2.
