Teleconferencing is now a nearly ubiquitous aspect of modern work. We routinely use apps such as Google Hangouts or Skype to present work or discuss documents with remote colleagues. Unfortunately, sharing source documents is not always as seamless. For example, a meeting participant might share content via screencast that she has access to, but that the remote participant does not. Remote participants may also not have the right software to open the source document, or the content shared might be only a small section of a large document that is difficult to share.
Later this week in Vienna, we will present our work at DocEng on DocuGram, a tool we developed at FXPAL to help address these issues. DocuGram can capture and analyze shared screen content to automatically reconstitute documents. Furthermore, it can capture and integrate annotations and voice notes made as the content is shared.
The first video below describes DocuGram, and the second shows how we have integrated it into our teleconferencing tool, MixMeet. Check it out, and be sure to catch our talk on Friday, September 16th at 10:00AM.
