[0046] 图3示出图1所示的电子书阅读器102的触摸屏显示器104的可选实施方式。 [0046] FIG 3 shows an alternative embodiment of the touchscreen display 104 of FIG. 1 shown in an electronic book reader 102. 在这个实施方式中,三维输入可由两个或多个麦克风302而不是检测压力的触摸屏或结合检测压力的触摸屏来产生。 In this embodiment, the three-dimensional input two or more microphones 302 may be formed instead of the detected pressure of the pressure of a touch screen or a touch screen binding assay to produce. 麦克风302可探测对象拍打电子书阅读器的显示器104的表面的声音。 Sound surface 302 of the display 104 may be a microphone beat detection target e-book reader. 该对象可以是指示笔、手指甲等。 The object may be a stylus, fingernails and so on. 由每个麦克风302探测的声音的相对音量的比较可用于计算离每个麦克风302的相对距离,因此在显示器104的表面上的位置。 Each microphone 302 detected by the sound volume relative comparison may be used to calculate a relative distance from each microphone 302, so that the position on the surface of the display 104. 使用两个麦克风,可识别显示器的象限(例如,右上、右下)。 Two microphones, display quadrant can be identified (e.g., upper right, lower right). 使用三个或更多个麦克风302,可对显示器104上的多个特定的位置进行三角测量。 Using three or more microphones 302 can triangulate a plurality of specific locations on the display 104. 麦克风302可集成到在显示器104的一个或多个角处或附近的电子书阅读器设备102的壳体中。 Microphone 302 may be integrated into the display 104 in a housing or a plurality of angles at or near the eBook reader device 102. 可通过区分开大声拍打或软拍打来确定第三维(即,z维)。 The third dimension may be determined (i.e., z dimension) separated by a loud tapping or tapping the soft region. 大声拍打可与较大的力相关,且软拍打可与较小的力相关。 Loud flapping may be associated with greater force, and the soft beat may be associated with less force. 由所有麦克风302探测的总音量可被求和以确定拍打的响度。 The total volume of all the probe microphone 302 may be summed to determine a beat loudness.

[0047] 有几个例子。 [0047] There are several examples. 下面参考图4-19提供可能的情况的更多细节。 With reference to FIGS. 4-19 below provide further details of possible scenarios. 然而,这些例子是非限制性的,且结构100可用于支持其它配置和使用情况。 However, these examples are non-limiting, and other support structures 100 can be used to configure and use.

[0048] 基于力的翻页 [0048] Based on the turning force

[0049] 在第一种使用情况中,通过检测以不同的方式施加到触摸屏用户界面的压力来实现在电子书阅读器设备中的翻页。 [0049] In a first use case, to turn pages in an electronic book reader device by detecting a different manner is applied to the touch screen user interface pressure. 根据力或姿势,可向前或向后翻一页或多页。 The force or position, forward or backward to turn one or more pages. 下面参考图4-6来描述例子。 4-6 will be described below with reference to an example of FIG.

[0050] 图4示出在触摸屏显示器104上显示一页文本的手持式电子书阅读器设备102的用户界面表示400。 [0050] FIG. 4 shows a display on the touchscreen display 104 a text handheld electronic book reader device 102 a user interface representation 400. 对象例如用户手指或指示笔在触摸屏104上的压力可使电子书阅读器设备102显示电子文件的不同页,类似于翻有形书的页。 An object such as a user finger or stylus pressure on the touch screen 104 can display the eBook reader device 102 in a different page of the electronic document, page turning similar physical book. 翻页探测器112可分析由触摸屏显示器104接收的输入以实施翻页命令。 Page detector 112 may analyze the received inputs from the touchscreen display 104 to implement backward commands.

[0051] 从上文回想起,如本文所述的“页”可被理解为内容的虚拟框架或将内容显示给用户的视觉显示窗。 [0051] From the above thought back, as described herein a "page" may be understood as a virtual frame content or content to a user a visual display window. 显示在电子书阅读器设备102上并使用触摸屏显示器104翻过的页可以不直接相应于在相关的有形书中的相同的书写页。 Displayed on the electronic book reader device 102 and the touchscreen display 104 using the page turn may not correspond directly written in the same physical page associated with the book. 根据显示能力、字体尺寸和其它这样的参数,显示在电子书阅读器设备102上的任何给定的“页”可包含比相应的书写页更多和更少的文本/图形。 The display capabilities, such as font size, and other parameters for any given display "pages" on the electronic book reader device 102 may comprise more than the corresponding page and writing fewer text / graphics. 因此,翻页机制112在从一个显示框架改变到另一显示框架的意义上翻页。 Therefore, page turning mechanism 112 in the page frame is changed from one display to another display frame significance. “页”的视觉表示例如页编号302可帮助用户区分开一个页与另一页。 "Page", for example, a visual representation of a page number 302 to help a user distinguish a page to another page. 在本实施例中,页编号是“50”。 In the present embodiment, the page number is "50." 此外,翻页的视觉表示例如改变的页编号可提供页正翻过的视觉确认。 In addition, for example, changing a visual representation of turning page number n page turn provides visual confirmation. 在其它实施方式中,可显示图形元素例如翻了页的书的表示来代替页编号,或连同页编号一起显示,以提供翻过的页的视觉表示。 In other embodiments, the graphical elements may be displayed, for example, turning pages of a book representing a page number instead of, or in conjunction with the display page number, to provide a visual representation of the page turn. 此外,代替页编号,进度图形可用于表示用户在内容中的进度。 Further, instead of the page number, it can be used to represent the progress of a graphical user's progress in the content. 音频和/或触觉反馈也可用于提供翻页的指示。 Audio and / or tactile feedback may also be used to provide an indication of the page. 例如,每当电子书的“页”被翻过时,可播放书的实际纸质页正被翻过的声音。 For example, each time the e-book "page" is turned over, it can play the actual paper book pages are being turned voice.

[0052] 在一个实施方式中,触摸屏显示器104的特定区域可配置成对压力作出响应,使得当被用户按压时,发起向前或向后翻页的功能。 [0052] In one embodiment, the specific area of ​​the touch screen display 104 may be configured to respond to pressure, such that when pressed by a user to initiate page forward or backward function. 在图4中,屏幕UI包括两个区域:用于向前翻页的区域404和用于向后翻页的区域406。 In FIG. 4, the UI screen comprises two regions: a region 404 and a region for the turning page backward 406 forwardly. 在一个实施方式中,用于向前翻页的区域404位于触摸屏显示器104的右下侧中,而用于向后翻页的区域406位于触摸屏显示器104的左下侧中。 In one embodiment, the touchscreen display 104 is located to the lower right side of the page forward area 404 and the area 406 to scroll up the lower left side of the touchscreen display 104. 在这些位置上,用户可使用两只手持握电子书阅读器设备102,并使用他或她的右拇指和左拇指翻电子书文件的页,类似于用户如何迅速翻阅有形平装本。 In these positions, the user can use the two-hand grip eBook reader device 102, and uses his or her right thumb and left thumb turn page e-book file, similar to how users quickly flip through tangible paperback. 区域404和406可适当地依尺寸制造以适应用户的拇指。 Regions 404 and 406 may be manufactured appropriately sized to suit the user's thumb.

[0053] 在一些实施方案中,用于向前翻页的区域404可占据触摸屏显示器104的整个右半部分,而用于向后翻页的区域406可占据触摸屏显示器104的整个左半部分。 [0053] In some embodiments, a page forward region 404 may occupy the entire right half of the touchscreen display 104, and 406 area for backward scrolling may occupy the entire left half of the touchscreen display 104. 可基于用户设置或所显示的文件的语言来切换在右-向前和左-向后之间的相关性。 Language may be based on user settings or files displayed in the right to switch - the correlation between the rearwardly - and forwardly left. 在其它实施方式中,用于向前翻页的区域可以在触摸屏显示器104的底部处,而用于向后翻页的区域可以在触摸屏显示器104的顶部处。 In other embodiments, the region for the forward turning may be at the bottom of the touchscreen display 104, and the region to scroll up at the top may be a touch screen display 104. 区域404、406的位置也可取决于电子书阅读器设备102的方位,使得如果用户旋转电子书阅读器设备102,翻页区域404、406的位置相应地移动。 Location areas 404, 406 may also depend on the orientation of the electronic book reader device 102, if the user rotates the device so that the electronic book reader 102, 404, 406 corresponding to a location area page is moved.

[0054] 在一些实施方式中,电子书阅读器设备102的方位可由集成在设备中的加速计探测。 [0054] In some embodiments, the orientation of the electronic book reader device 102 may be integrated in the device for detecting the accelerometers. 例如,当电子书阅读器设备102被旋转时,翻页区域404、406可停留在触摸屏显示器104的右下角和左下角中。 For example, when the electronic book reader device 102 is rotated, page 404, 406 can stay at the bottom right region and lower left corner of the touchscreen display 104.

[0055] 如上所述,触摸屏压力探测器120探测施加到触摸屏显示器104的压力或力的量。 [0055] As described above, the touch screen is applied to the pressure sensor 120 to detect the amount of pressure or force of the touchscreen display 104. 被翻过的页的数量可与放置在翻页区域404、406中的一个上的压力的量成比例。 Number of pages to be turned over may be proportional to the amount of pressure placed on a page 404 in the region. 当较大的力施加到翻页区域404、406时,较大数量的页与力的量成比例地被翻过。 When a large force is applied to the page area 404, the greater the amount of force and number of pages are turned in proportion. 机械力可通过任何手段施加到翻页区域404、406。 Mechanical force may be applied to the turning zone 404, 406 by any means. 例如,用户可将其拇指放置在触摸屏显示器104上,并“捏”其拇指和食指之间的电子书阅读器设备102。 For example, a user may place his or her thumb on the touch screen display 104, and "pinch" electronic book reader device 102 between their thumb and forefinger. 作为另一方法,用户可将电子书阅读器设备102放置在桌子上并用指示笔向下按压。 As another method, the user may be an electronic book reader device 102 is placed on a desk and pressing down with the stylus.

[0056] 在其它实施方式中,翻页的速度可与施加到翻页区域404、406的压力的量成比例地变化。 Changes in proportion to the amount of [0056] In other embodiments, the turning speed may be applied to the pressure area 404 of the page. 更多的压力可使页更快地翻过。 More pressure can turn the page quickly. 被翻过的页的数量和翻页的速度都可与压力的量成比例地改变。 They are turned in turning speed and the number of pages can be changed in proportion to the amount of pressure. 例如,在翻页区域404、406中的一个上的较大压力可使更多的页翻过且使页翻得更快。 For example, a greater pressure on the page area 404, 406 can make more pages and page turn turn faster. 用于翻过较大数量的页和/或用于以较快的速度翻页的力的阈值量可由用户调节。 A large number of pages turned over, and / or a threshold amount of force for turning at a faster rate of user adjustable. 例如,用户可将压力的量定义为一次翻过10页所必需的力。 For example, a user may be defined as the amount of pressure required to force a turn 10. 用户也可将压力的量定义为例如一分钟翻过60页所必需的压力。 The user may also define the amount of pressure, for example, one minute of pressure necessary to turn 60.

[0057] 可选地,可随着时间的过去从观察用户行为中推断阈值量。 [0057] Alternatively, the threshold may be inferred from the amount Over time the observing user behavior. 如果用户在施加压力来翻页之后始终地向后翻页,可推断出对于所施加的压力用户不想翻过那么多的页。 If the user applying pressure to always flip back through the pages, infer the pressure applied by the user do not want to turn so many pages. 因此,下次相同的压力被施加时,设备可翻过较少的页。 Thus, next time when the same pressure is applied, the device may turn fewer pages.

[0058] 除了按压并保持以外的姿势可产生翻页命令。 [0058] In addition to pressing and holding posture other than the flip command may be generated. 例如,使对象(例如,手指、指示笔等)在触摸屏104上挥击可产生翻页命令。 For example, to make an object (e.g., finger, stylus, etc.) on the touch screen 104 may generate a page command swipe. 被翻过的页的数量可与在挥击姿势期间对着触摸屏104施加的力的量成比例地增加。 Number of pages can be turned over against the increase in the amount of the touch screen 104 applied during the swipe gesture in proportion to the force. 下面参考图7更详细地描述使用挥击姿势翻页。 Referring to FIG 7 described in more detail using the page swiping gestures. 被翻过的页的数量也可取决于用于挥击姿势或对着翻页区域404、406按压的手指的数量。 Number of pages being turned may also depend for swiping gesture or pressing against the number of fingers 404, 406 of the page area. 例如,一个手指翻一页,两个手指翻两页,三个手指翻三页,依此类推。 For example, a finger down one page, two turning two fingers, three fingers turn three, and so on. 在手指的数量和被翻过的页的数量之间的可选相关性也是可能的。 Optional correlation between the number and the number of pages being turned fingers are also possible.

[0059] 在一些情况下,用户可能希望自动翻页,所以下一页将在没有用户输入的情况下被显示。 [0059] In some cases, the user may wish to automatically flip, the next page will be displayed without user input. 为了允许用户有在自动翻页之前阅读一页的足够的时间,但不是用户过多地等待下一页被显示的那么多的时间,自动翻页的速度可基于以前的手动翻页速度的平均值。 To allow users to have enough time to read one page before auto-flip, but not too many users so much time waiting for the next page to be displayed, automatic page turning speed can be based on the average of the previous manual page turning speed value. 例如,如果在所显示的文件的最后三页上用户在20、21和19秒间隔之后输入手动翻页命令,电子书阅读器设备102可开始每20秒自动翻一页。 For example, if the file is displayed in the last three to manually input the user command after turning 20, 21 and 19 second intervals, an electronic book reader device 102 may begin one turn every 20 seconds automatically. 在一些实施方式中,需要发起自动翻页的用户输入。 In some embodiments, the user input required to initiate the automatic page. 图5示出在从通过如图4所示的设备102进行的翻页操作之后,在电子书阅读器设备102的触摸屏显示器102上显示下一页文本的用户界面表示500。 FIG. 5 shows the device 102 after passing through the turning operation shown in FIG. 4, the next page of the text displayed on the electronic book reader device 102 is a touch screen display 102 showing a user interface 500. 所显示的页的视觉表示由页编号502指示。 Visually displayed page indicated by the page number 502 represented. 在本实施例中,页编号是“51”,其代表相对于图4所示的页编号“50” “向前”的一页。 In the present embodiment, the page number is "51", which represents a relative page numbers shown in Figure 4, "50", "forward". 从图4到图5的页的变化从施加到向前翻页区域404的压力产生,使得对着触摸屏区域104施加的力的量与翻一页相关。 An amount of from 4 to change the page of FIG. 5 is applied to the turning from the forward pressure zone 404 is generated, so that the force applied against the touch screen area 104 is associated with one turn. 在一些实施方案中,施加到翻页区域404的较大的力将一次翻过多于一页。 In some embodiments, a large force is applied to the region 404 of the first page more than one turn. 向后翻页功能响应于在向后翻页区域406上的压力以类似的方式起作用。 Page backward function in response to pressure on the back page region 406 functions in a similar manner. 虽然页正“翻过”,电子书阅读器设备102和/或显示器104可能需要用于处理或刷新所显示的图像的时间。 Although the page positive "turn", an electronic book reader device 102 and / or display 104 or may be required for processing the refresh time of a displayed image. 特别地,当一次翻过很多页时,在页之间的转换可能不是即时的。 In particular, when a turn many pages, conversion between pages may not be immediate. 在用户界面显示翻了页的视觉表示的实施方案中,可在转换时间期间显示视觉表示。 In the embodiment shown in the user interface a page turning visual representation may be displayed during the transition time visual representation. 例如,可通过与在汽车里程表中显示的数字类似地滚动数字来表示从页50到页51的改变。 For example, the page can be changed from 50 to represent page numbers by scrolling 51 similarly to the digital display in an automobile odometer. 在其它实施方案中,页50可在视觉上变化到页51,例如通过表示在有形书中翻页的视觉技术。 In other embodiments, the page 50 may vary visually on page 51, for example by showing the book page on a tangible vision technology.

[0060] 图6示出用于使用电子书阅读器设备102的触摸屏显示器104来翻页的过程600。 [0060] FIG. 6 shows a process for using the electronic book reader device 102 is a touch screen display 104 to page 600. 在602,电子文件的第一页显示在电子书阅读器设备102的触摸屏显示器104上。 At 602, the first page of an electronic document displayed on the electronic book reader device 102. The touchscreen display 104. 这例如显示在图4中的用户界面表示400中,其中第一页“50”被显示。 This example user interface displayed in FIG. 4 representation 400, wherein the first page of "50" is displayed.

[0061] 在604,在触摸屏显示器上的区域内探测一定量的压力。 [0061] detecting an amount of pressure in the 604 region on the touch screen display. 在上面描述的实施方式中,例如压力可由对象施加到向前翻页区域404或向后翻译区域406。 In the embodiment described above, for example, pressure can be applied to the target area 404 to page forward or backward translated region 406.

[0062] 在606,确定是否在第一或第二区域中施加压力。 [0062] At 606, it is determined whether the pressure applied to the first or the second region. 如果施加到第一区域(例如,来自606的“第一区域”分支),一页或多页在608与施加到第一区域的压力的量成比例地向前翻过。 If the first region (e.g., 606 from the "first region" branch) applied to one or more pages in proportion to the amount of 608 turned forward pressure applied to the first region. 如果施加到第二区域(例如,来自606的“第二区域”分支),一页或多页在610与施加到第二区域的压力的量成比例地向后翻过。 If the second region (e.g., 606 from the "second region" branch) applied to one or more pages turned back in proportion to the amount of pressure applied to 610 the second region.

[0063] 迅速跳回带书签的页 [0063] snap back to the bookmarked page

[0064] 在另一使用情况中,用户可能希望给一页作标记,翻到另一页,并接着返回到以前标记的页。 [0064] In another use case, a user may wish to mark, turn another page, and then returns to the page previously marked. 可通过给用户希望返回到的页加书签,通过将手指放在页上或插入书签来对有形书实现这个操作。 You may wish to return to a bookmarked page, by placing a finger on a page or insert bookmarks to achieve this through the operation of the physical book to the user. 如下面参考图7-10所述的,可使用电子书阅读器设备102来实现类似的加书签。 As described below with reference to FIG. 7 to 10 may be implemented using similar bookmarked eBook reader device 102. 这些加书签技术影响电子书阅读器设备的触摸屏用户界面的方面,如将在下面更详细地描述的。 These aspects influence bookmarking techniques electronic book reader device touch screen user interface, as will be described in more detail below.
