Title (EN) USER INTERFACE WITH AUDITORY FEEDBACK FOR HAND-HELD DEVICE
(FR) INTERFACE UTILISATEUR MAIN-ECOUTE POUR DISPOSITIF PORTATIF
Abstract:
(EN) A hand-held information processing device, such as a mobile phone, has a thumb wheel that lets the user scan a circular array of options. Each respective one of the options is represented by a respective audio output that gets played out when the wheel is turned a notch up or down. This enables the user to select an option with one hand and without having to look at the device. It also allows for a form factor smaller than that of a conventional mobile phones since a keypad is not needed for entering digits to make a call from a personalized directory.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif portatif de traitement de l'information, par exemple un téléphone mobile, pourvu d'une molette qui permet à l'utilisateur de parcourir un réseau circulaire d'options. Chacune de ces options est représentée par une sortie audio correspondante qui est lue lorsque la molette avance ou recule d'un cran. L'utilisateur peut ainsi choisir une option à l'aide d'une main et sans regarder le dispositif. Cela permet également de réaliser un facteur de forme plus petit qu'un téléphone mobile classique, puisque l'on n'a pas besoin d'un clavier de saisie pour composer un numéro d'appel à partir d'un répertoire personnalisé.
