System for broadcasting software applications and portable data communications device for use in such a system

A communications system consisting of a server system that stores software applications, a broadcast system that broadcasts the software applications, and a multiplicity of portable clients that each include a receiver having a tuner that is selectively tunable to receive a selected one of the software applications broadcasted by the broadcast system. The portable clients can be any type of portable data communications device, such as a hand-held, palm-top, or notebook computing device, a PDA, an intelligent cellular phone, or any other personal multimedia appliance or Network Computer (NC). The broadcast system can be any suitable satellite or terrestrial air or cable broadcast system. The software applications can consist of a broad spectrum of different software applications, such as word processing, video games, spreadsheets, address books, calendars, and the like. Each of the portable data communications devices includes a receiver that has a tuner that is selectively tunable to receive a selected one of a plurality of software applications broadcasted by a broadcast system, a user-interface that enables a user to select one of the broadcasted software applications for downloading, a processor for executing the downloaded software applications, and a modem for establishing a two-way communications link with a network control system. The two-way communications link includes a forward channel over which the portable data communication device can transmit client data to the network control system, and a return channel over which the network control system can transmit system data to the portable data communication device. The client data can include requests for unrecoverable software application data and client software download request data.

System and method for certifying information technology skill through internet distribution examination

A system which contains a plurality of examinee systems connected over the Internet to an exam distribution server. The exam distribution server connects to an exam database system which contains a plurality of exam questions that have been approved by one or more exam question approvers. The exam database system may store a plurality of potential exam questions for each of a plurality of sections of the examination, including a section for web search and evaluation, a section for general computing concepts, a web page design section, a section for using presentation software, a section relating to spreadsheets and word processing, and a section relating to legal and ethical issues. An exam administrator system then generates an exam through an exam generation module that selects a predetermined number of questions in each of the predetermined sections of the examination and presents the proposed exam to the exam administration system. The exam administrator may then selectively substitute one or more questions from the exam database into the proposed examination, until the exam administrator is satisfied that the exam covers all of the topics that the exam administrator desires to cover. At that point, the exam administrator makes the exam available over the Internet to one or more of the plurality of examinee systems who may then take the exam over the Internet and store their submitted exam at the exam distribution server which in turn grades the exams for certification.

Conferencing system for simultaneous broadcast of audio and transmission of documents via push technology

A conferencing system provides for the simultaneous processing of audio and document information during a conference call. An audio conferencing bridge includes the functionality to provide an audio connection between attendees who have dialed into the bridge through either the Public Switch Telephone Network or over a data network using IP telephony. Each of the meeting attendees has access to a user interface with a connection to a data network. On each user interface is a web browser which includes a specially designed plug-in for converting documents from traditional word processing or database formats to HTML. A list is compiled in the conferencing bridge which includes the names and IP addresses for each of the attendees. Once the plug-in has converted the documents to HTML format, a series of icons are incorporated into the documents which provide for the transmission of this information to the other parties. At the time a party wishes to broadcast this information to the others, it is first transmitted via an e-mail to the conferencing bridge which accesses a list of attendees. Using PUSH technology, the documents are transmitted via the data network to the web browsers of all the other attendees. The specially designed plug-in allows each conference attendee to broadcast documents to all other attendees.

Method and system for providing alternatives for text derived from stochastic input sources

A computer-implemented method for providing a candidate list of alternatives for a text selection containing text from multiple input sources, each of which can be stochastic (such as a speech recognition unit, handwriting recognition unit, or input method editor) or non-stochastic (such as a keyboard and mouse). A text component of the text selection may be the result of data processed through a series of stochastic input sources, such as speech input that is converted to text by a speech recognition unit before being used as input into an input method editor. To determine alternatives for the text selection, a stochastic input combiner parses the text selection into text components from different input sources. For each stochastic text component, the combiner retrieves a stochastic model containing alternatives for the text component. If the stochastic text component is the result of a series of stochastic input sources, the combiner derives a stochastic model that accurately reflects the probabilities of the results of the entire series. The combiner creates a list of alternatives for the text selection by combining the stochastic models retrieved. The combiner may revise the list of alternatives by applying natural language principles to the text selection as a whole. The list of alternatives for the text selection is then presented to the user. If the user chooses one of the alternatives, then the word processor replaces the text selection with the chosen candidate.
