In addition, the term "and/or" herein is only one kind of association relationship describing an associated object, and means that there may be three kinds of relationships, for example, a and/or B, which may mean: a exists alone, A and B exist simultaneously, and B exists alone. In addition, the character "/" herein generally indicates that the former and latter related objects are in an "or" relationship.

Preferred embodiments of the present invention will be described in detail below with reference to the accompanying drawings.

As shown in fig. 1, the embodiment of the present invention discloses an input method, and the process of the method can be described as follows.

S11: a first input operation performed on an input unit is obtained, wherein the input unit comprises M input key values, and M is an integer.

In the embodiment of the present invention, the first input operation may be an operation performed by a user with respect to an input unit, for example, a click operation or a touch operation with respect to the input unit.

Optionally, the M input key values included in the input unit may be keyboard characters in a keyboard, for example, the M input key values may include letters, numbers, symbols, and the like. In practical applications, each input key value may be located in a corresponding sub-area of the input unit, for example, each letter in the keyboard may have a corresponding key area.

When the user performs the first input operation on the input unit by using a hand, the first input operation may be obtained by detection of a sensor in the electronic device, for example, a capacitance sensor senses a change in capacitance in a touch display screen on which a virtual keyboard is displayed, or a pressure sensor detects a change in pressure in the input unit, or the like, or the first input operation may also be detected by other methods, which is not limited in the present invention.

S12: determining a first position of a first input operation in an input unit, and determining a first operation body for performing the first input operation; n input key values in the M input key values correspond to the first operation body, N is a positive integer, and N is smaller than M.

In the embodiment of the present invention, the first position may be a contact position between the user and the input unit when performing the first input operation, for example, the first position of the first input operation may be determined by a change of capacitance in the touch display screen, or a position where a pressure in the input unit changes may be detected as the first position of the first input operation, and so on.

Alternatively, the first operation body may refer to a finger, such as an index finger, a middle finger, a thumb, etc., used by the user to perform the first input operation during the input process.

In the embodiment of the present invention, when determining the first operation body corresponding to the first input operation, one implementation manner that may be adopted is: during the first input operation of the user on the input unit, a plurality of images including the operation body of the user are acquired by the acquisition device, generally speaking, the number of the operation bodies of the user may be a plurality, for example, may be 10, that is, the number corresponds to 10 fingers of the user, for example, 5 fingers of a left hand and 5 fingers of a right hand are included. Further, by analyzing the captured image, a first operation body that performs a first input operation can be determined from a plurality of operation bodies of the user. For example, the finger of the user performing the clicking operation, such as the index finger or the middle finger.

In practical application, the collecting device may be a camera, which may collect images of the finger movements of the user when the user uses the input unit, for example, a plurality of images may be collected continuously, and the movements of the fingers of the user, the movement tracks of the fingers, and the like may be determined through analysis of the plurality of images, and of course, the keyboard region where the first position of the detected first input operation is located may also be combined, so as to obtain the first operation body performing the first input operation through comprehensive analysis. As shown in fig. 2, which is a schematic diagram of an acquisition device and an input unit in an electronic device according to an embodiment of the present invention, a keyboard area of the input unit may be within an acquisition range of the acquisition device, so that an operation body of a user performing an input operation may be determined more accurately by analyzing an image acquired by the acquisition device in a process of inputting by the user.

Optionally, the M input key values included in the input unit may have a preset corresponding relationship with the operation body of the user. Generally, according to the keyboard usage habit of people, a corresponding input key value can be set for each operation body (i.e. finger) for the user to perform input operation. For example, the keyboard region may be divided into two parts, wherein the first part may correspond to a left hand of the user, the second part may correspond to a right hand of the user, and further, a corresponding preset input key value may be divided for each finger, so that a corresponding relationship between the operation body and the input key value may be set. For example, the fingers of the user may be numbered, for example, from right to left, and may be numbered 1, 2, 3, and 4 … 10 in sequence, and similarly, the input key values corresponding to the operation in the input unit may be numbered correspondingly, for example, as numbered a1, a2, A3, a4 … a10, that means 1 corresponds to the input key value of the a1 region, 2 corresponds to the input key value of the a2 region, and so on. As shown in fig. 3, it is a schematic diagram of the corresponding relationship between the operation body and the input key value.

Thus, by determining the operation body, the first region corresponding to the operation body in the input unit can be determined. For example, as can be seen from fig. 3, the input key values corresponding to the middle finger (numbered 3) of the right hand of the user include "8", "I", "K", and "<", and when the first operation body is determined to be the middle finger of the hand of the user, the first area can be correspondingly determined to be the area occupied by the input key values "8", "I", "K", and "<".

S13: and determining a first input key value corresponding to the first input operation based on the first operation body and the first position, wherein the first key value is one of the N input key values.

In the embodiment of the present invention, when determining the first input key value according to the first operation body and the first position, the following ways may be adopted, but not limited to.

The first method is as follows: according to the corresponding relation between the operation body and the input key values, the region where the N input key values corresponding to the first operation body in the input unit are located can be determined, namely the first region. Of course, the first region may include N sub-regions corresponding to N input key values.

And then a first input key value uniquely corresponding to the first input operation can be determined from the N input key values according to the first position and the first area.

In practical applications, when the user uses the input unit, if the input unit is a virtual keyboard, for example, the input unit may be a virtual keyboard displayed on a display screen of the electronic device or a virtual keyboard projected by a projection technology.

Generally, when a user enables a virtual keyboard, the position where the virtual keyboard is located may be set. For example, a user can trigger the electronic device to display the virtual keyboard on the display screen through a gesture, and then touch at least one hand on the display screen, so that the position of the virtual keyboard in the input display unit can be updated according to the position touched by the user. For example, in the initial state, the user's right hand may correspond to an initial row of characters in a virtual keyboard, e.g., the index finger of the hand typically corresponds to the "J" character, the middle finger corresponds to the "K" character, the ring finger corresponds to the "L", and the little finger corresponds to the ": "(or"; ") accordingly, when the user places the right hand on the display screen of the electronic device (or projects an area of the virtual keyboard) to use the virtual keyboard for the first time, the display area/projection area of the virtual keyboard may be updated based on the fingers of the right hand, such as at least three fingers, so that the displayed/projected virtual keyboard can adjust the position of the virtual keyboard based on the position of the fingers and the initial position corresponding to the fingers in the virtual keyboard, so as to facilitate the user to perform input operation. Of course, the layout form of the key values in the keyboard is not changed in the process that the keyboard moves along with the movement of the hands of the user.

Of course, in practical applications, the positions of the M input key values in the input unit may also be fixed, that is, the input unit may not transmit the position change according to the motion of the hand.

Optionally, after the first region is determined, a first sub-region corresponding to the first position in the N sub-regions included in the first region may be determined according to the first position.

In the embodiment of the present invention, in the process of determining the first sub-region, the following may be performed: determining an operation direction corresponding to a first operation body, determining at least one sub-region of the N input key values, which is in the operation direction relative to the starting position, and further determining a first sub-region of the first position in the at least one sub-region, or determining a first sub-region of the at least one sub-region, which is closest to the first position; the starting position is the position of the first operation body before the first input operation.

Alternatively, the operation direction of the first operation body may be determined by analyzing an image acquired by the acquisition device, for example, by analyzing the acquired image, a motion trajectory of the first operation body may be determined, and thus the operation direction of the first operation body may be determined. Alternatively, the operation direction corresponding to the first operation body may be determined based on the vector directions corresponding to the positions of the first operation body before and after the first input operation is performed, that is, the start position and the end position (that is, the first position). For example, referring to fig. 3, if the initial position of the first operation body in the input unit is the sub-region where "J" is located, and the first position is the sub-region where "U" is located, the operation direction of the first operation body can be determined, i.e. the operation direction pointing from "J" to "U".

After determining the operating direction of the first operating body, at least one sub-region in the operating direction relative to the starting position may be determined. For example, when it is determined that the operation direction of the first operation body is a direction pointing from "J" to "U", it may be determined that the sub-region in the first operation direction in the first region may include the sub-region corresponding to the input key value "U" and the sub-region of the input key value "7".

Further, a first input key value corresponding to the first input operation in the at least one sub-region determined based on the first position may be determined. At this time, whether the first position is located in the at least one sub-region may be detected, and if it is determined that the first position is located in a first sub-region of the at least one sub-region, an input key value corresponding to the first sub-region may be determined as a first input key value corresponding to the first input operation. For example, if it is determined that the first position is in the sub-region corresponding to "U", the first input key value corresponding to the first input operation is "U".

Or, if the first position is not in the range to which any one of the sub-regions divided in the first region belongs, for example, the first position may be between two connected sub-regions, at this time, a sub-region closest to the first position in at least one sub-region may be determined as the first sub-region, and if the first position is determined to be closer to the "U" when the first position is in the position between the sub-region corresponding to the "U" and the sub-region corresponding to the "7", the first input key value may be determined as the "U".

The second method comprises the following steps: and determining a target sub-region where the first position is located in M sub-regions corresponding to the M input key values, and judging whether the target sub-region is located in a first region where the N input key values corresponding to the first operation body are located.

And if the target sub-region is determined to be in the first region, determining that the input key value corresponding to the target sub-region is the first input key value corresponding to the first input operation. For example, referring to fig. 3, if the first operation body is determined to be the index finger of the right hand of the user, the first region is the region denoted by reference numeral a4, and if the determined first position is located in the sub-region of "J" in the input unit, at this time, the target sub-region where the first position is located may be determined to be the first input key value corresponding to the first operation body to be "J".

Or, if it is determined that the target sub-region is not in the first region, the first input key value may be updated to one of the N input key values according to a preset rule. The preset rule may be that an input key value of a sub-region adjacent to the target sub-region is determined from the N input key values based on the first position and determined as the first input key value.

For example, if it is determined that the first operation body is the index finger of the user, the first region is the region denoted by reference numeral a4, and if the target sub-region where the first position is located in the input unit is the sub-region of the input key value "G", and the input key value G is not the input key value corresponding to the index finger and is not located in the first region, at this time, it may be determined that the input key value of the sub-region located in the first region adjacent to "G" in the horizontal direction is the first input key value, and at this time, the first input key value may be updated to "H" adjacent to "G", that is, the input "H".

The third method comprises the following steps: and determining the target input key value corresponding to the M input key values at the first position, and judging whether the target input key value is one of N input key values corresponding to the first operation body, if so, determining the target input key value to be the first input key value corresponding to the first input operation, otherwise, determining the first input key value from the N input key values.

In the embodiment of the invention, the electronic equipment can determine the coordinate position of the first position in the input unit, and further can determine the target input key value corresponding to the first position according to the corresponding relation between the coordinate position in the input unit and the input key value. For example, the target input key value corresponding to the first position may be determined to be "P".

Further, it may be determined whether the target input key value is one of N input key values corresponding to the first operation body, and the first input key value may be determined according to the determination result.

For example, when it is determined that the target input key value corresponding to the first position is "P", if the first operation body is a little finger of a right hand of the user and the N corresponding input key values include "P", it may be determined that the target input key value is one of the input key values corresponding to the first operation body, and therefore, the "P" may be determined as the first input key value.

Alternatively, if it is determined that the first operation body is a ring finger of the right hand of the user, and the N input key values corresponding to the first operation body are the input key values included in the region a2 in fig. 3, that is, "9", "O", "L", and ">", then the target input key value "P" is not any one of the input key values corresponding to the first operation body, and it can be presumed that the user may touch another input key value other than the input key value corresponding to the finger by mistake while performing touch typing. At this time, the input key values of the user may be corrected, for example, an input key value closer to "P" among the N input key values corresponding to the first operation body (in this example, a ring finger) may be used as the first input key value, and for example, "O" may be used as the first input key value corresponding to the first input operation.

As shown in fig. 4, based on the same inventive concept, the embodiment of the present invention also discloses an electronic device, which includes an input unit 10 and a processor 20.

The input unit 10 includes M input key values, and the input unit 10 may be a physical keyboard or a virtual keyboard.

The processor 20 may be configured to obtain a first input operation performed on the input unit 10, determine a first position of the first input operation in the input unit 10, determine a first operation body performing the first input operation, and determine a first input key value corresponding to the first input operation based on the first operation body and the first position, where the first key value is one of the N input key values; n input key values in the M input key values correspond to the first operation body, N is a positive integer, and N is smaller than M.
