  • Publication number: 20120223920
    Abstract: A system for communicating packaged data includes a pen-enabled computing device and a second computing device. The pen-enabled computing device includes a handwriting capture interface, a user interface and a processing element. The handwriting capture interface is capable of receiving and capturing an electronic handwriting input within at least one input field of an electronic form based upon a position of a writing stylus. To facilitate proper operation of the pen-enabled computing device, the user interface is adapted to provide feedback, such as aural, visual and/or vibration feedback, based upon the electronic handwriting input. The pen-enabled computing device is capable of transmitting packaged data including at least one form identifier and processed electronic handwriting input. Thereafter, the second computing device is capable of receiving the packaged data and then verifying the processed electronic handwriting input.

  • Patent number: 8115748
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are provided for electronically capturing handwritten data using a computing device having a handwriting capture interface. The method includes detecting a position associated with an actuation of the handwriting capture interface to define a handwritten input, and defining a bounding box encompassing at least a portion of individual strokes of the handwritten input. In addition, the method includes storing the handwritten input and the bounding box.

  • Patent number: 7869655
    Abstract: A system, computer program product and method are provided that smooth handwritten information following the transmission of handwritten data to a second computing device, thereby reducing the memory, processing and communications bandwidth requirements of a first computing device that captured the handwritten information. A system, computer program product and method are also provided for creating new points in the vicinity of at least some of the data points of the handwritten data after transmission of the data, thereby effectively improving the resolution of the handwritten information without increasing the memory, processing and communications bandwidth requirements of the first computing device.

  • Patent number: 7777729
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for editing handwritten data using a pen enabled computing device having a writing surface and a writing stylus selectively communicable with the writing surface. The method includes detecting the position and movement of the writing stylus with respect to the writing surface to form a handwritten input, and defining a bounding box encompassing at least a portion of each stroke of the handwritten input. In addition, the method includes storing the handwritten input and the bounding box encompassing at least a portion of each stroke thereof. The handwritten input may be edited to add textual data to the handwritten input, insert textual data between strokes encompassed by adjacent bounding boxes, delete at least one stroke encompassed by a bounding box, and/or replace at least one stroke encompassed by a bounding box with alternate textual data.

  • Patent number: 7091959
    Abstract: A system, computer program product, computing device, and associated methods for identifying forms used with pen enabled computing devices and manipulating information associated therewith are provided. The system comprises a pen enabled computing device having a writing stylus, a preprinted form, and a computer program product. The preprinted form is cooperable with the pen enabled computing device and comprises a page having a writing surface, a visual form identifier disposed on the writing surface and adapted to identify the nature of the page to the user, and a plurality of fields defined by the writing surface. The computer program product executes within the pen enabled computing device and cooperates therewith to determine the disposition of the writing stylus adjacent to the writing surface in order to actuate the pen enabled computing device.

  • Patent number: 6826551
    Abstract: A system for producing a contextual electronic message generally comprises a handwriting capture device, a user interface, a central processing unit, and a communications interface. The handwriting capture device is capable of receiving and capturing an electronic handwriting input. The user interface is adapted to interact with a user and is further capable of receiving a user input to initiate a processing function. The central processing unit is capable of determining the context of the handwriting input and application-specific information associated therewith, as well as process the handwriting input in accordance with the context and/or the initiated processing function. A contextual electronic message is thereby produced which may comprise a portion of the application-specific information and/or a portion of the handwriting input.
