DocuGram

Work tools are increasingly fragmented. You might teleconference with a consulting group using Skype in the morning, brainstorm ideas on a whiteboard with an internal team in the afternoon, and teleconference again with another team in a country halfway around the world with Google Hangouts in the evening, all while chatting with local and remote team members throughout the day on Slack. While this diversity of tools can help you expand the scope of your collaboration, it can also silo your work data, making it difficult to extract and integrate information across projects.

DocuGram helps users manage this content diffusion, allowing them to capture and share documents from any application. As users scroll through pages of their document inside the native application (Word, Google Docs, web browser), the system captures and analyses in real-time the video frames and reconstitutes the original document pages into an easy to view HTML-based representation. In addition to regenerating the document pages, a DocuGram also includes the interactions users had over them, e.g. mouse motions and voice comments. A DocuGram acts as a modern copy machine, allowing users to copy and share any document from any application.

Abstract

Close
In this paper we describe DocuGram, a novel tool to capture and share documents from any application. As users scroll through pages of their document inside the native application (Word, Google Docs, web browser), the system captures and analyses in real-time the video frames and reconstitutes the original document pages into an easy to view HTML-based representation. In addition to regenerating the document pages, a DocuGram also includes the interactions users had over them, e.g. mouse motions and voice comments. A DocuGram acts as a modern copy machine, allowing users to copy and share any document from any application.
