    Layer editing method and apparatus in a pen computing system

    An editing apparatus and an editing method in a pen computing system using a whole display screen as an input window. Edited information written or drawn by a user on a transparent layer, which is displayed over original text, is stored as a picture or translated into computer-processible recognition data. Each transparent layer has a layer identifier. The user can display multiple layers over the original text by selecting layer identifiers to reflect layer information in a picture form or in a computer code form. The layer information, if demanded by the user, can be combined with the original text in order to generate edited text.

    Handwritten text capture via interface surface

    A method and system for enabling user interaction with computer software running in a computer system via an interface surface and a sensing device. The interface surface contains information relating to the computer software and coded data indicative of a text field. When placed in an operative position relative to the interface surface, the sensing device senses indicating data indicative of the text field and generates movement data indicative of the sensing device's movement relative to the interface surface. The indicating data and movement data are received in the computer system and the text field is identified from the indicating data. The computer software is operated at least partly in reliance on the movement data, and in accordance with instructions associated with the text field.

    System and method for check fraud detection using signature validation

    Systems and methods are provided for validating the authenticity of a signature on a document by providing a document from an account, the document including an actual signature and a machine-readable identifier, wherein the machine-readable identifier contains a string of data representing the integral characteristics of all valid account signatures and a person-specific confidence threshold. When the document is presented at a point of presentment, the document is scanned into a document-processing machine and the actual signature is compared against all valid account signatures.

    Interfacing with ink

    The present invention relates to interfacing with electronic ink. Ink is stored in a data structure that permits later retrieval by applications. The ink includes stroke information and may include property information. Through various programming interfaces, one may interact with the ink through methods and setting or retrieving properties. Other objects and collections may be used as well in conjunction with the ink objects.

    Temporary lines for writing

    A user is provided with guidelines that are temporarily displayed with content, in order to assist the user in neatly and accurately writing electronic ink. The guidelines may appear when the user moves a writing tool, such as a stylus or pen, close to a display and writing surface. Alternately, the guidelines may appear after the user has begun to write electronic ink, so that the guidelines can correspond to the angle at which the user is writing, the size of the user's handwriting, or both. As the user writes the electronic ink onto the writing surface, the handwritten electronic ink is added to the content being rendered on the display. After the user has finished writing electronic ink and moves the writing tool away from the writing surface, the guidelines are deleted, and are not added to the displayed content. In this way, the user can employ the temporary guidelines to accurately and legibly write electronic ink into content, without the guidelines themselves becoming a permanent part of the content.

    United States Patent 7,167,164
    Ericson , et al. January 23, 2007

    Recording and communication of handwritten information

    A hand-held user unit (1), which can be part of a network-based information management system, allows for the writing down and recording of handwritten information. The user unit (1) has a memory for storing the recorded information. The memory comprises a first memory part (M1) located in the user unit and a second memory part (M2) located in an external data storage device, which memory parts are connected in such a way that, from the point of view of a user, they form a coherent memory unit.Methods for memory management in such a user unit are also described.

    Unconstrained handwriting recognition

    Methods and systems of the present invention may be used to recognize digital image data arranged in rows and columns. Exemplary embodiments may include a feature extractor for extracting feature information from data representing the rows and columns of the digital image data, a feature compressor for compressing the extracted feature information, and a neural network for classifying the digital image data from the compressed, extracted feature information.
