Title
(EN) MODELESS AUGMENTATIONS TO A VIRTUAL TRACKPAD ON A MULTIPLE SCREEN COMPUTING DEVICE
(FR) AUGMENTATIONS SANS MODES D'UN PAVÉ TACTILE VIRTUEL SUR UN DISPOSITIF INFORMATIQUE À MULTIPLES ÉCRANS
Abstract
(EN)
The disclosed technologies address various technical and user experience problems by augmenting the functionality provided by virtual on-screen trackpads without requiring users to switch between modes. In this way, users can access extended functionality without interfering with expected traditional trackpad functionality (e.g. moving a cursor, clicking, and scrolling). In particular, technologies are disclosed for modeless digital pen input to a virtual trackpad, modeless gestures for summoning user interfaces, modeless gestures utilizing position relative to adjacent user interfaces, and modeless cursor control and interaction with virtual touch targets.

Les technologies de l'invention résolvent divers problèmes techniques et d'expérience d'utilisateur par l'augmentation de la fonctionnalité fournie par des pavés tactiles virtuels sur écran sans nécessiter que les utilisateurs commutent entre des modes. De cette manière, les utilisateurs peuvent accéder à une fonctionnalité étendue sans interférer avec une fonctionnalité de pavé tactile classique attendue (par exemple, déplacement d'un curseur, clic et défilement). En particulier, l'invention concerne des technologies pour une entrée à l'aide d'un stylo numérique sans modèle sur un pavé tactile virtuel, des gestes sans modèle pour appeler des interfaces utilisateur, des gestes sans modèle utilisant une position par rapport à des interfaces utilisateur adjacentes, et une commande de curseur sans modèle et une interaction avec des cibles tactiles virtuelles.
