Abstract

A program is disclosed by which services installed in a user’s device will communicate with the presentation device and automatically capture the information from the presentation device, e.g. which document is being displayed (URL, file name from file server etc) during the point of note taking, and which page is being displayed during the presentation in presentation device. The above information will be part of the metadata of the handwritten note. Once the user opens the hand written note and selects any written content from the note thread, the invention will identify and search the referred document and that page and will be displayed to the user. In this case the user can get the referred document in a same or different device as per user’s choice. Depending on the program used, the user can use the projector itself to transmit the screen bmp/jpg. Since some note takers are not taking notes on every page, the laptop/projector could always be sending the content The note taker can select which of the transmitted screen bmp/jpg pages they want. This will help the user to understand the study material and written notes in a synchronized way.
