Title (EN) INSCRIPTIONS FOR ELECTRONIC BOOKS
(FR) INSCRIPTIONS DE LIVRES ÉLECTRONIQUES
Abstract:
(EN) This disclosure describes techniques for appending representations of handwritten inscriptions into electronic books, such that electronic books may be customized through the use of inscriptions akin to physical books. To append inscriptions into physical books, a user may provide an inscription on a physical medium. An image of the physical medium including the inscription may be obtained, and the image may be embedded into contents of an electronic book, thus creating a copy of the electronic book that includes a custom inscription in addition to the book contents.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des techniques permettant d'ajouter des représentations d'inscriptions manuscrites dans des livres électroniques, de sorte que des livres électroniques puissent être personnalisés par le biais de l'utilisation d'inscriptions semblables à celles de livres physiques. Pour ajouter des inscriptions dans des livres physiques, un utilisateur peut effectuer une inscription sur un support physique. Une image du support physique comprenant l'inscription peut être obtenue, et l'image peut être incorporée dans un contenu d'un livre électronique, créant ainsi une copie du livre électronique qui comprend une inscription personnalisée en plus du contenu de livre.
