Voice to Text and Sketch (V2TS) is a patented software program which allows text or drawings to be synchronized to recorded audio. Each portion of text or section of a drawing is associated with an audio segment recorded at the time it was written/sketched. Using V2TS, a user can replay dialogue and audio that occurred when a certain note or sketch feature was created in a meeting, class or creative session. V2TS also indexes phrases, allowing users to find relevant sections of audio stream to be replayed along with synchronized sketch content. This technology is particularly useful for knowledge transfer in collaborative design projects or online learning.
V2TS is designed to be implemented with the Recall drawing application also developed at Stanford (see docket S99-050
