D Austin Henderson Jr, Stuart K Card, John T Maxwell III: User interface with multiple workspaces for sharing display system objects. Xerox Corporation, James T Beran, December 10, 1991: US05072412 (531 worldwide citation)

Workspaces provided by an object-based user interface appear to share windows and other display objects. Each workspace's data structure includes, for each window in that workspace, a linking data structure called a placement which links to the display system object which provides that window, which ...

Randall B Smith, Carl A Waldspurger: Private regions within a shared workspace. Xerox Corporation, James T Beran, April 21, 1992: US05107443 (284 worldwide citation)

In a shared navigable workspace that is presented at more than one workstation, a region is made private in response to a user request. The user can also indicate the region's level of privacy by indicating levels of access of different users. The private region's contents are displayed only to user ...

Mark J Stefik, Daniel G Bobrow, Stanley M Lanning, Deborah G Tatar, Gregg S Foster: Small-scale workspace representations indicating activities by other users. Xerox Corporation, James T Beran, November 27, 1990: US04974173 (217 worldwide citation)

In a collaborative system in which a body of shared data may be accessed by more than one user, a small-scale representation of the body of shared data displayed to one user includes an indication of the activities of other users. A user that is not viewing the shared data at full scale can thus obt ...

Lynn D Wilcox, A Lawrence Spitz: Character and phoneme recognition based on probability clustering. Xerox Corporation, James T Beran, December 24, 1991: US05075896 (153 worldwide citation)

Prior to character or phoneme recognition, a classifier provides a respective probability list for each of a sequence of sample characters or phonemes, each probability list indicating the respective sample's probability for each character or phoneme type. These probability lists are clustered in ch ...

Geoffrey D Nunberg, H Tayloe Stansbury, Curtis Abbott, Brian C Smith: Processing natural language text using autonomous punctuational structure. Xerox Corporation, James T Beran, May 5, 1992: US05111398 (106 worldwide citation)

A technique for processing natural language text uses a data structure that includes structure data in the text data. The structure data indicates an autonomous punctuational structure of the text, a punctuational structure that is independent of the lexical content of the text and therefore can be ...

Ranjit Makkuni, Frank Zdybel Jr, Robert A Stults: Gesture-modified diagram for retrieval of image resembling diagram, with parts selectable for further interactive retrieval. Xerox Corporation, James T Beran, April 23, 1991: US05010500 (100 worldwide citation)

Recorded video segments are retrieved and displayed through a user interface that employs gestures. The user provides gestures by moving a mouse, and the resulting signals indicate a diagram. Data identifying the diagram is used to access a data structure to obtain data indicating which of a set of ...
