Office Filing

Part of the Topics in Information Systems book series (TINF)


We discuss issues related to the development of a multimedia information system for an office environment. Multimedia documents are composed of text, image, voice, and attribute information. We describe the multimedia document structure and its internal representation. Information may be extracted from digitized documents for the purpose of enhancing content addressibility and achieving better compression. Content addressibility in this environment is achieved by specifying conditions on attributes, text, images, and document presentation format. An access method based on signatures is outlined for attributes, text, and image objects. Query reformulation, multimedia document formation, and communication are also discussed in this environment.
