  • Patent number: 8371857
    Abstract: A method of teaching pronunciation is provided which includes communicating by a voice portal server to a user a model word and detecting a response by the user to the voice portal server. The method also includes comparing the response word to the model word and determining a confidence level based on the comparison of the response word to the model word. The method further includes comparing an acceptance limit to the confidence level and confirming a correct pronunciation of the model word if the confidence level one of equals and exceeds the acceptance limit.

  • Patent number: 8348670
    Abstract: A method for the computer-assisted learning of orthography, the method includes executing the following steps by a data processing system: retrieving (11) a main set of words from a data storage; retrieving (12) an error data set associated with said main set of words from the data storage; repeatedly executing the following steps: selecting (13) a word to prompt the user with, by computing, for each word from the error data set, a statistic measure related to the probability of an error occurring in the word, and selecting the word which has the maximum value of the statistic measure; prompting (14) the user with the word; accepting (15) a user input specifying a sequence of symbols; comparing (16) the user input with the word; updating (17, 18) and storing the error data set.

  • Patent number: 8226477
    Abstract: An exemplary method for automatically simulating calling scenarios comprises the steps of receiving, from a user, information relating to a call center scenario, automatically obtaining at least one calling scenario template based on the information, automatically merging code modules specific to the scenario with the template to generate a simulation program, executing the simulation program, and providing simulation results to the user.

  • Patent number: 6585520
    Abstract: A method and system is disclosed for enhancing a memorization process by using a mnemonic display implemented with a grid learning system. First, the grid learning system is implemented on a predetermined display area of a display device with a plurality of aligned border sections to form the mnemonic display, the border sections containing one or more guiding elements in a predetermined order. When one or more learning entities to be memorized by a user of the mnemonic display are identified, the learning entities are placed in the grid learning system, wherein the first guiding element contained in each learning entity is aligned with a same guiding element in at least one border section, and wherein the locations of the learning entities with reference to the corresponding border sections assist the user to memorize the learning entities.

  • Patent number: 6072946
    Abstract: A computerized method and system for interactively simulating a plurality of telecommunications services operates in response to a user sending a message from his client computer across a data network to a server requesting to download on one of the service simulation programs. In response to the message from the client, the server provides the requested telecommunications service simulation program. The program provided by the server is downloaded and executed by the client. The downloaded program provides the user with an interaction experience representative of the selected one of the plurality of telecommunications services. This interaction experience may include additional communication between the service simulation program and the server. Additionally, the service simulation program provides guidance to the user in using and configuring both the service simulation program and, potentially, the actual telecommunications service to which the user has subscribed.

  • Patent number: 5304066
    Abstract: A method for managing work progress of separate work jobs in a machine shop having a plurality of separate machining operations comprises applying to a work order document a row of colored labels with each colored associated with a respective one of the machining operations. The operator of an operation can therefore readily select jobs that require that operation by simple visual observation. Once that operation is effected, the label is removed and available for the next operation which is readily apparent due to the colored label. The selection of the colors associated with the various operations is effected so that ready recollection is available due to associated by alliteration.

  • Patent number: 5203704
    Abstract: A pointing gesture, a method of communication using a set of pointing gestures, and mnemonic devices are described used between a sender and a receiver. The pointing gestures are performed by the sender using a gesturing device which comprises a primary indicator and a plurality of ancillary indicators. The pointing gestures are performed by the sender in a field located between the sender and the receiver. The field has a plurality of possible vector patterns created therein. Each vector pattern has a plurality of relocating line and point vectors. In the preferred embodiment, the gesturing device comprises the sender's hand with the index finger serving as the primary indicator and the thumb and middle finger serving as ancillary indicators. Also disclosed herein is a method of communication using a set of thirty-six pointing gestures with each pointing gesture programmed or associated with one communication code.

  • Patent number: 4661073
    Abstract: A Morse code tutoring system: a computer with an appropriate program and a code practice oscillator interfacing to it. In one mode of operation, the operator uses a straight key to produce code in the oscillator which is monitored by the computer, and analyzed for quantitative elements of his "amateur accent", that is, those characteristic of his code that make it harder for another person to decode. In another mode, the computer generates code which is output by the oscillator, and the operator decodes it and feeds back to the computer the decoded message. In subsequent lessons, the code generated is enriched in those characters that he fed back erroneously.

  • Patent number: 4255749
    Abstract: Apparatus for converting a train of code signals representative of a letter, number, or symbol to a visual display of such corresponding letter, number, or symbol. The train of signals includes individual signals of at least two distinct time durations, the length of the time durations being dependent upon the proficiency of the operator initiating the signals. In the signal converting apparatus, a clock signal of a preselected time duration is produced. The time relation of each of the signals in the train of signals is resolved in relation to the clock signal. A first signal is produced if the signal being resolved is less than the clock signal, and a second signal is produced if the signal being resolved is greater than the clock signal. An addressor receives the first and second signals and stores the signals to generate a given address dependent upon the particular first and second signals and the order those signals are received. The addressor produces a signal indicative of the given address.
