Abstract

See full text

A method for a computer system includes receiving a first transmission from a user, wherein the first transmission includes a digitized representation of a first document transmitted using a first transmission format, processing the digitized representation of the first document with an optical character recognition process to determine a first electronic destination, wherein the first electronic destination need not be known by the computer system before receiving the first transmission, reformatting at least a portion of the digitized representation of the first document from the first transmission format into a storage format; determining advertisement data in response to the first transmission, and sending an electronic transmission to the first electronic destination, wherein the electronic transmission includes the advertisement data and the portion of the digitized representation of the first document in the storage format.
