20090063963Handheld Electronic Device and Associated Method Enabling the Generation of a Proposed Character Interpretation of a Phonetic Text Input in a Text Disambiguation Environment - An improved handheld electronic device and associated method enable the phonetic inputting of text using a reduced keyboard and transformation algorithm. The handheld electronic device and method advantageously enable the inputting of languages such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and the like without limitation. The transformation algorithm subjects each of a number of linguistic element permutations to an algorithm such as the Maximum Matching Algorithm or other algorithm to generate a string of words. The transformation algorithm then selects one string of words as a default textual output based on at least one of its minimal number of words and its relatively high attributed frequency value.03-05-2009
20110078564Converting Text Messages into Graphical Image Strings - To generate graphical image strings that graphically represent the full meaning of the content of text messages, a text message containing at least one sentence to be converted into graphical format is first analyzed to identify, for each sentence: the subject; the at least one verb associated with the subject, if any; and the substantives not referring to a person, if any. A graphical representation of the subject is then obtained for each sentence. Likewise a first graphic database is accessed to obtain a graphical representation of the substantives not referring to a person included in each sentence. A modified graphical representation of the subject is then obtained showing the subject performing the action indicated by the at least one associated verb. Finally, these graphical representations are combined into a graphical image string.03-31-2011
