Title (EN) SMART ANNOTATION OF CONTENT ON COMPUTING DEVICES
(FR) ANNOTATION INTELLIGENTE DE CONTENU SUR DES DISPOSITIFS INFORMATIQUES
Abstract:
(EN) Techniques for implementing smart annotation of digital content on a computing device are described in this document. In one embodiment, a method includes receiving an annotation to a document displayed in an application on a computing device. The application is in an annotation mode in which any received user input is recognized as annotations but not a part of the underlying content. The method also includes determining whether the annotation is related to an editing mark applicable to the underlying content of the document. In response to determining that the received annotation is related to an editing mark, determining an editing operation corresponding to the editing mark and performing the editing operation to the underlying content in the displayed document without exiting the annotation mode of the application.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des techniques pour mettre en œuvre l’annotation intelligente de contenu numérique sur un dispositif informatique. Dans un mode de réalisation, un procédé comprend la réception d’une annotation pour un document affiché dans une application sur un dispositif informatique. L’application est dans un mode d’annotation dans lequel une entrée d’utilisateur reçue est reconnue en tant qu’annotation mais pas en tant que partie du contenu sous-jacent. Le procédé comprend en outre la détermination du fait que l’annotation est liée ou non à une marque d’édition applicable au contenu sous-jacent du document. En réponse à la détermination que l’annotation reçue est liée à une marque d’édition, le procédé comprend la détermination d’une opération d’édition correspondant à la marque d’édition et la conduite de l’opération d’édition sur le contenu sous-jacent dans le document affiché sans quitter le mode d’annotation de l’application.
