Abstract

Owing to the recent development of handwriting input devices such as tablets and digital pens, digital notebooks have become an alternative to traditional paper-based notebooks. Digital notebooks are available for various device types. To display a list of text documents on a device screen, we often use scaled thumbnails or text snippets summarized through natural language processing or structural analyses. However, these are ineffective in conveying summaries of handwritten documents, because informal and unstructured handwritten data are difficult to summarize using traditional methods. We therefore propose the use of emphasis-based snippets, i.e., summarized handwritten documents based on natural emphasis annotations, such as underlines and enclosures. Our proposed method places emphasized words into thumbnails or text snippets. User studies showed that the proposed method is effective for keyword-based navigation.
