Patent application serial number 366681 has not been assigned to a company or institution.
The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "The present invention relates to a method for producing an e-book, especially to a multimedia e-book producing method, which can automatically create a button zone according to an object, and executing a function specific to the object when the button zone is selected.
"Prior art e-book production methods generally use a file conversion program to convert a document file or a paper book scanned file (being of .doc format or .jpg format or .ppt format) to an e-book file (being of PDF format or ePub format). However, an e-book produced in this manner can only exhibit static figures and text contents, and is dull somehow.
"To enrich the content of an e-book, some prior art e-book production methods use a graphic design software (for example the Adobe Flash software) to produce multimedia e-books. However, as each added multimedia function has to be set up manually, the producing process will therefore consume much manpower and time, lacking efficiency.
"To solve the foregoing problems, a novel multimedia e-book producing method, which can automatically create a button zone for an object to save editing time, is therefore needed."
In addition to the background information obtained for this patent application, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "One objective of the present invention is to disclose a multimedia e-book producing method, which can use a digital processing apparatus to automatically create a button zone according to an object fed into a page, wherein, the button zone is used to execute a function specific to the object when the button zone is selected by a reader.
"Still another objective of the present invention is to disclose a multimedia e-book producing method, which can use a digital processing apparatus to automatically create a button zone according to a new size and new location of an object after the object has gone through an editing operation of size adjustment, shifting, rotating, edge cutting, or any combination thereof, wherein, the button zone is used to execute a function specific to the object when the button zone is selected by a reader.
"To attain the foregoing objectives, a multimedia e-book producing method, using a digital processing apparatus, is proposed, the method including the steps of:
"an identification step, used for retrieving a piece of identification information from an object for identifying the type of the object;
"a button zone creation step, used for creating a button zone for the object, executing a corresponding function generation procedure, and detecting the selection of the button zone; and
"a corresponding function execution step, used for executing a function specific to the object.
