Empower Technologies(TM) Granted US Patent On Pen-based Handwriting Recognition Method For Computing Devices

    TSX Venture - EPT

    RICHMOND, BC, Oct. 9 /CNW/ - Empower Technologies ("Empower")
(TSX.V: EPT) is pleased to announce that the US Patent Office has granted the
Company a pen-based (or stylus-based) handwriting recognition method for
computing devices. The patent is for an improved system and method for
pen-based handwritten and keystroke data input into a computer system (such as
a smart phone or a tablet computer with pen/stylus-based handwriting input
capability). The system and method receives pen-based data entry from multiple
related input boxes within a handwriting area on a digitizer pad. Thread-based
processing allows each input box or group of input boxes to be separately
evaluated, providing for continuous character recognition. Character strokes
entered into each input box or group of input boxes are saved and interpreted
together to allow more complete recognition of naturally written characters.
Improvements on keyboard layouts are also disclosed.
    The Company will conduct an evaluation of the patent claims to determine
the strength of a claim of infringement against any possible infringing
technologies. If the Company detects any infringement and the conditions are
right, then it will vigorously defend the patent until a satisfactory outcome
is reached.
