Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR ANNOTATING AN ELECTRONIC DOCUMENT INDEPENDENTLY OF ITS CONTENT
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE D'ANNOTATION D'UN DOCUMENT ELECTRONIQUE INDEPENDAMMENT DE SON CONTENU
Abstract
(EN) A system, method, and apparatus for annotating an electronic document independently of its content is provided. According to one variation, a tablet and stylus-based computer is programmed with a document browser that permits a user to annotate documents viewed through the browser. The annotations are stored separately from the viewed document pages but are correlated with the pages such that when a previously annotated page is revisited, annotations relating to that page are retrieved and displayed on top of the page as an 'ink' layer. Three different annotation modes are possible: ink, highlight, and erase. Each mode can be selected through a user interface supplied through the browser or through controls embedded in a document.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système, un procédé et un appareil permettant d'annoter un document électronique indépendamment de son contenu. Selon un mode de réalisation variant, un ordinateur reposant sur une tablette et un stylet est programmé avec un navigateur de documents qui permet à un utilisateur d'annoter des documents visionnés par l'intermédiaire du navigateur. Les annotations sont stockées séparément à partir des pages de documents visionnés mais corrélées avec ces pages de telle manière que lorsqu'une page annotée précédemment est revisitée, des annotations concernant cette page sont extraites et affichées au niveau de la partie supérieure de la page comme un film d'encre. Il existe trois modes d'annotation différents: encre, surbrillance et effacement. Chaque mode peut être sélectionné au moyen d'une interface d'utilisateur fournie par le navigateur ou des commandes comprises dans un document.
