Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.

Iconic Selection of Input Mode
Provided is a technique to visually select the mode of input for mail functions
to overcome the difficulties of current input modes.
Conventional mail functions provide text forms for performing such operations
as replying or forwarding mail items. These functions are enhanced by a
technique which uses the text form of input as the default user choice and
provides an additional set of input selection choices, e.g., voice, image, etc. The
optional input modes are presented to the user as a set of icons, where the
current choice is shown as selected.
The benefits to the user are integration of many functional aspects of the
system and a consistent manner for accessing many input devices to perform the
same function. Selection of a given mode automatically configures the system for
the mode, saves worksteps, and provides additional function and flexibility for the
user to do work.
