1452 results about "Typing" patented technology

Typing is the process of writing or inputting text by pressing keys on a typewriter, computer keyboard, cell phone, or calculator. It can be distinguished from other means of text input, such as handwriting and speech recognition. Text can be in the form of letters, numbers and other symbols. The world's first typist was Lillian Sholes from Wisconsin, the daughter of Christopher Sholes, who invented the first practical typewriter.

Method and apparatus for integrating manual input

Apparatus and methods are disclosed for simultaneously tracking multiple finger and palm contacts as hands approach, touch, and slide across a proximity-sensing. compliant, and flexible multi-touch surface. The surface consists of compressible cushion, dielectric, electrode, and circuitry layers. A simple proximity transduction circuit is placed under each electrode to maximize signal-to-noise ratio and to reduce wiring complexity. Such distributed transduction circuitry is economical for large surfaces when implemented with thin-film transistor techniques. Scanning and signal offset removal on an electrode array produces low-noise proximity images. Segmentation processing of each proximity image constructs a group of electrodes corresponding to each distinguishable contact and extracts shape, position and surface proximity features for each group. Groups in successive images which correspond to the same hand contact are linked by a persistent path tracker which also detects individual contact touchdown and liftoff. Combinatorial optimization modules associate each contact's path with a particular fingertip, thumb, or palm of either hand on the basis of biomechanical constraints and contact features. Classification of intuitive hand configurations and motions enables unprecedented integration of typing, resting, pointing, scrolling, 3D manipulation, and handwriting into a versatile, ergonomic computer input device.

Method and system for enhanced transcription

A method and system for performing enhanced transcription is disclosed. In a preferred embodiment, a transcription application may automatically transcribe information provided in a message. For instance, the application may automatically convert audio (e.g., voice) data, and/or other data types provided within a message to textual form. Additionally, the transcription application may automatically populate data entry fields with corresponding data from a message. Moreover, the transcription application may indicate a level of confidence for the data automatically transcribed. Furthermore, in a preferred embodiment, the transcription application may monitor the transcriber's activity and automatically adjust the presentation of data to be transcribed according to such activity. For example, the transcription application may monitor the transcriber's focus, e.g., by determining the location of the cursor, and the application may automatically adjust the presentation of data to correspond with such focus. As another example, the transcription application may monitor the typing activity of a transcriber during manual transcription and automatically adjust the presentation of the message data in accordance with such typing.
