Title
(EN) FRONT TOUCHSCREEN AND BACK TOUCHPAD OPERATED USER INTERFACE EMPLOYING SEMI-PERSISTENT BUTTON GROUPS
(FR) INTERFACE UTILISATEUR ACTIONNÉE PAR UN ÉCRAN TACTILE AVANT ET UN PAVÉ TACTILE ARRIÈRE UTILISANT DES GROUPES DE BOUTONS SEMI-PERSISTANTS
Abstract
(EN) Software implemented user interface oriented for one-hand operation of small handheld computerized devices, such as smartphones, which in addition to a front touchscreen additionally have been augmented with rear mounted touchpads. With one hand operation, the user typically holds their thumb in front of the device, and holds their other various fingers in back of the device. The disclosed user interface can be viewed a semi-persistent button group, typically invoked by either simultaneous front and back touches or double taps. The semi-persistent button group can contain multiple virtual touch sensitive buttons, and can be maneuvered to be within easy reach of the user's thumb so that various buttons can then be easily thumb activated.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une interface utilisateur implémentée par logiciel, orientée pour une utilisation à une main de petits dispositifs informatisés portables, tels que des téléphones intelligents, qui, en plus d'un écran tactile avant, ont en outre été améliorés avec des pavés tactiles montés à l'arrière. Avec une utilisation à une main, l'utilisateur tient généralement son pouce à l'avant du dispositif, et garde ses différents autres doigts à l'arrière du dispositif. L'interface utilisateur décrite dans la présente description peut être visualisée comme comprenant un groupe de boutons semi-persistants, généralement appelés en appuyant simultanément sur des touchers avant et arrière ou en tapotant deux fois rapidement. Le groupe de boutons semi-persistants peuvent contenir de multiples boutons tactiles virtuels, et peuvent être manipulés afin d'être facilement à portée du pouce de l'utilisateur de sorte que divers boutons peuvent alors être activés facilement par le pouce.
