Title
(EN) USER INTERFACE TO SUPPORT A USER SELECTING CONTENT
(FR) INTERFACE UTILISATEUR DESTINEE A AIDER UN UTILISATEUR A SELECTIONNER UN CONTENU
Abstract
(EN)
A user interface provides a representation of content items that are selected based on a duration of time of a selection action of the content items if the duration of time of the selection action exceeds a given time interval. An association between a plurality of content items may be used to determine the growth of the selection indication including at least one of a rate of growth, a shape of growth, and the time interval prior to growth of the selection indication. A system may sense at least one of a proximity of a content items to a selected content item and an association between content items, and grows the selection indication at a rate and/or shape and/or other representation that is determined by the proximity and/or association.
(FR)
Une interface utilisateur produit une représentation d'articles de contenu qui sont sélectionnés selon la durée d'une action de sélection desdits articles, si elle dépasse un certain intervalle de temps. Une association entre plusieurs articles de contenu peut être utilisée pour déterminer la croissance de l'indication de sélection comprenant au moins une vitesse de croissance, une forme de croissance et l'intervalle de temps précédant la croissance de l'indication de sélection. Un système peut détecter au moins une proximité d'articles de contenu d'un article de contenu sélectionné et une association entre des articles de contenu, et augmente l'indication de sélection à une vitesse et/ou sous une forme et/ou une autre représentation déterminées par la proximité et/ou l'association.
