Ask Patents is a question and answer site for people interested in improving and participating in the patent system. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am looking to start my own language services website in the near future. My site will possibly use the same method (explained below) as this site www.overcomethebarrier.com where they state here http://www.overcomethebarrier.com/business/ that:

"Our patent-pending method requires the teacher to type everything the student says during the lesson, which allows for you and your company to monitor the effectiveness and efficiency of your students’ lessons."

Now, is this patentable? We also want to use Google Documents to record our skype conversations so the customer can see the mistakes that are being made and then we can rectifiy them live, surely this cannot be patented?

I hope someone can fill me in hear, it would be greatly appreciated.
