Image Number 10 for United States Patent #7848573.
Systems, methods, and computer-readable media for processing electronic ink: (a) receive electronic ink input; (b) convert the input to machine-generated objects; and (c) render the objects such that their size substantially corresponds to the input's original size. The input ink may constitute text, and the machine-generated objects may correspond to words, lines, and/or other groupings of text generated by a handwriting recognizer. To enable quick and easy identification of recognizer errors, in at least some systems and methods, a user may select one or more words, which will cause the system to display the original ink corresponding to the selected word(s). Such systems also may display alternative words generated by the recognizer corresponding to the selected original ink and allow the user to select one of the alternatives to make corrections in the recognized text (akin to using a spell-checking or handwriting recognition program).
