User interface and method for operating a system

The simple gesture control of the user interface can be used by visually impaired or blind people in order to enter telephone numbers or account numbers for example. The user interface and the method constitute a shift from the current paradigm of guiding a user on touchscreens, which has precisely the advantage of the hand-eye coordination allowed by the touchscreen, wherein a user touches the exact location on the touchscreen where a corresponding selection surface is visualized. Instead, a swiping gesture is supported which can be carried out in any region on the touch-sensitive surface and shifts the focus from one selection surface or virtual button to the next. The swiping gesture can be carried out not just in the horizontal and vertical direction but also in a diagonal direction. Diagonal swiping gestures allow a particularly quick selection of the corresponding virtual buttons. Because multiple swiping gestures can be carried out one after the other, the selection of the virtual button can be modified as often as desired. This has the advantage that a user can first explore the user interface before actually entering a character or activating a function. Each selected virtual button is read to the user by means of a screenreader functionality. The method can be implemented on conventional existing hardware, and the user interface is designed in accordance with reliable and user-centered policies.

Scrolling electronic documents with a smartphone


The invention comprises novel input means for portable devices such as smartphones, PDAs, tablets, and the like. One or more sensors of the device are adapted to allow movements of the device itself to represent user actions to some degree of precision. These actions may comprise inter alia translating, rotating, accelerating (linearly or rotationally), shaking, flipping, sliding, various gestures, or the like. Other movements are further possible as will be clear to one skilled in the art. These movements may be used to control such actions as scrolling, paging, zooming, scaling, rotating, translating, opening, closing, and other operations of use in a GUI or other environment, for purposes of manipulating digital objects.

Display device, display program, and display method

A touch-panel device (display device) acquires a first sensor video (31), a second sensor video (32), and a third sensor video (33). The touch-panel device displays the acquired videos, respectively, in regions into which a display screen is partitioned. The touch-panel device detects a prescribed touch gesture and also detects the input position thereof. The touch-panel device identifies which video said input position is displaying. The touch-panel device performs a process (scrolling or zooming into or out of the displayed image) corresponding to the identified touch gesture and changes the direction or movable range of said process in accordance with the identified sensor video.

System and method of interactively controlling a virtual camera

A multiple-view virtual camera system comprising one or more image source units, an image processing unit, a parameter setting unit in signal communication with the image processing unit, and a display in signal communication with the image processing unit. The display is configured to display images generated by the image processing unit to a user of the virtual camera system, where the displayed images are configured according to image-related parameters input by a user of the multiple-view camera system through the parameter setting unit. The parameter setting unit may include a user interface, such as a single-touch or multi-touch touchscreen display, configured to accept input from the user that adjusts the parameters that are transmitted to the image processing unit and utilized by the image processing unit. A method of interactively controlling the virtual camera system by a user of a motor vehicle is also disclosed.

Method and terminal for multi-event input

Disclosed are a method and device for multi-event input. The method comprises: receiving a touch signal generated by a touchscreen in response to a touch action of a user finger; determining a direction of touch of the user finger with respect to the touchscreen on the basis of the touch signal; and, triggering different events on the basis of different directions of touch of the user finger. By such means, different event inputs are triggered on the basis of different directions touch when a finger touches a touchscreen, thus solving the problem that one touch action on the touchscreen by the user finger is responded by only one type of event.

System for gaze interaction

A method and system for assisting a user when interacting with a graphical user interface combines gaze based input with gesture based user commands. A user of a computer system without a traditional touch-screen can interact with graphical user interfaces in a touch-screen like manner using a combination of gaze based input and gesture based user commands. A solution for touch-screen like interaction uses gaze input and gesture based input as a complement or an alternative to touch-screen interactions with a computer device having a touch-screen. Combined gaze and gesture based interaction with graphical user interfaces can be used to achieve a touchscreen like environment in computer systems without a traditional touchscreen or in computer systems having a touchscreen arranged ergonomically unfavourable for the user or a touchscreen arranged such that it is more comfortable for the user to use gesture and gaze for the interaction than the touchscreen.
