The patent application (Publication Number: US20240038227A1) describes a system that includes a multi-user interface shared by multiple users over a network and a collaborative drawing tool executed by a processing device. The tool receives voice-based drawing commands from users, converts them to text, renders drawing updates on the interface, and saves the output to a storage system. The system allows for separate audio channels for different users, tracks change history, provides an undo feature, maps drawing commands to visual components, and enables resizing of the display based on updates. It also includes features like broadcasting changes to all users, assigning session identifiers, and controlling access through user authentication.

Furthermore, the system involves speech-to-text conversion, natural language processing, keyword extraction, component lookup, and graph generation based on text-based object notation messages. It identifies users through sign-in interfaces, limits permissions based on user identities and access constraints, and allows for a combination of voice-based and manual inputs. The system also includes a computer program product with instructions for implementing various features like change history tracking, visual component mapping, broadcasting changes, natural language processing, template customization, and file format access for rendering and updating drawings. Overall, the system aims to facilitate collaborative drawing activities among multiple users through a shared interface with advanced features for efficient communication and interaction.
