Abstract

The Internet service is identified from a name or sequence formed by key presses for each letter of a name or sequence. The user is then directed to the corresponding Internet address. The input data is either by keypad, or tactile screen, the screen letters displayed can vary as a function of the frequency of use of the service name. Service determination is done by comparison on a server of the user input data with service references in one or more groups of a data dictionary. Dependent upon the input, a list of several responses corresponding to the input will be displayed on the user terminal who will the make an appropriate selection. The following conditions can be taken into account to determine the choice and order of the referenced service dictionaries: (a) the order or organization of the list of names returned to the user; the Internet address corresponding to the service identified and eventual parameters transmitted to it; the geographical location of the user; language used; model and fabricator of terminal used, data language and standards compatible with the terminal, provider of Internet access; Internet portal at the time of the request.

Description

La présente invention concerne un dispositif permettant d'accéder facilement à un service Internet depuis un clavier numérique ou tout autre moyen de saisie limité, sans avoir à en taper l'adresse complète ou exacte. The present invention relates to a device to access a Web service from a keypad or other limited input means, without having to type the full or exact address.

Les adresses Internet, ou URL (Uniform Resource Locator), se présentent normalement sous la forme d'un éventuel préfixe spécifiant le protocole, par exemple http:// et d'un nom de domaine. Internet addresses, or URL (Uniform Resource Locator), normally in the form of a possible prefix specifying the protocol, for example http: // and a domain name. Ce nom de domaine est composé essentiellement de lettres, le plus souvent constitué d'un nom propre suivi d'un suffixe .com, .fr ou autre. The domain name is composed mainly of letters, usually consists of a name followed by .com suffix .com or another.

or de nombreux appareils pouvant techniquement accéder à Internet ne disposent pas d'un clavier alphanumérique complet, ce qui implique une saisie plus fastidieuse. or many devices that can access the Internet technically do not have a full alphanumeric keyboard, which implies a more tedious typing.

La présente invention consiste à simplifier l'accès à un service de type Internet, en faisant correspondre, grâce à l'interrogation d'une base de données distante, un nom de service ou une saisie abrégée de ce nom, notamment une séquence de chiffres tapée d'après les caractères sérigraphiés sur un clavier numérique, avec l'adresse Internet réelle du service, puis en redirigeant automatiquement l'utilisateur vers celle-ci. The present invention is to simplify access to an Internet service type, matching through querying a remote database, a service name or a shortened entry of the name, including a sequence of digits typed from the screen-printed characters on a numeric keypad, with the actual Internet address of the service, and then automatically redirecting users towards it.

Les principaux bénéficiaires de l'invention sont les possesseurs d'un téléphone mobile. The main beneficiaries of the invention are the owners of a mobile phone. Les claviers de téléphone mobiles montrent une correspondance usuelle entre les chiffres et les lettres : 2abc, 3def, 4ghi, 5jkl, 6mno, 7pqrs, 8tuv, 9wxyz. Mobile phone keypads show a usual correspondence between the numbers and letters: 2abc, 3DEF, 4ghi, 5jkl, 6MNO, 7PQRS, 8tuv, 9WXYZ. Habituellement, pour saisir un texte il faut taper plusieurs fois sur chaque touche pour sélectionner la lettre choisie. Usually to enter text you need to type several times on each button to select the desired letter. L'invention présente permet d'accéder à un service Internet en n'effectuant qu'une pression par touche et en se basant sur la correspondance des lettres et des chiffres apparaissant sur le clavier du téléphone lui-même. The present invention provides access to an Internet service by performing only a pressure key and based on the correspondence of letters and numbers that appear on the phone's keypad itself. Le code envoyé au serveur est ensuite comparé aux noms enregistrés, puis l'utilisateur est redirigé automatiquement, dans le cas d'une solution unique ou bien se voit proposer une liste de choix si plusieurs services correspondent aux chiffres saisis. The code sent to the server is compared to registered names, then the user is redirected automatically in the case of a single solution or is offered a list of choices if multiple services correspond to the numbers entered. Par exemple, pour accéder au site http://Addresse.com/mobile/ , l'utilisateur de téléphone mobile n'a qu'à taper 23373773 pour adresse . For example, to access the site http://Addresse.com/mobile/, the mobile phone user has to type 23373773 for address.

Le système de correspondance peut également être étendu à la recherche de noms et de mots-clés au sein de la base de données. The matching system can also be extended to search for names and keywords in the database.

L'accès au service de re-direction sus-décrit est effectué à travers une zone de saisie, comportant la mention Go ou tout autre terme permettant d'indiquer à la passerelle la volonté d'accéder au service sus-décrit, ainsi que de faire comprendre à l'utilisateur qu'il va pouvoir, par ce moyen, atteindre le site Internet de son choix. Access to the above-described re-direction service is performed through an input box, featuring the Go or any other term mentioned to indicate to the gateway will access the above-described service, as well as make it clear to the user that he will be able, in this way, reach the website of their choice.
