【0079】「南インドの宿泊」の情報が複数ページに渡っている場合には、図13(B)に示すようにページめくり入力を行うことにより、次ページ以降に記載された情報を読むことができる。 [0079] When the information of "accommodation of South India" is over more than one page, by performing a page turning input, as shown in FIG. 13 (B), to read the information that is described in the following pages can.

【0080】(4)ページめくり、しおり処理等 次に、本実施の形態の電子ブックでページめくりを行う具体例について説明する。 [0080] (4) page turning, bookmark processing etc. Next, reference will be made to specific performing page turning ebook of this embodiment.

【0081】 ページめくり入力操作 本実施の形態の電子ブックでは、各種操作は画面上の指動作として入力するため、筐体に操作入力用のボタン等がほとんどない。 [0081] In the page turning input operation electronic book of the present embodiment, various types of operations in order to input as a finger operation on the screen, there is almost no buttons and the like for the operation input in the housing. また本の内容が表示された画面においては、画面上に操作入力用マークがほとんどないのが特徴である(図3参照)。 In the screen contents of the book has been displayed, it is characterized by little manipulation input mark on the screen (see Figure 3).

【0082】本実施の形態では、旅行情報ソフトを電子ブックにセットすることにより、ユーザーは旅行のガイドブックを参照するのと同様の使い勝手で、図3に示すような画面上で実際の本のページと同様の内容を参照することができる。 [0082] In this embodiment, by setting the travel soft ebook, the user in the same usability and to refer to the travel guidebook, the actual present on the screen as shown in FIG. 3 it is possible to see the same content and the page.

【0083】ユーザーが次ページを参照したいと思った場合には、ユーザーが画面上の情報表示領域を紙の本のページめくる時のように人差し指で左から右へなぞると、図14に示すようにあたかもページがめくれるようなイメージで表示画面が次ページの内容に更新される。 [0083] When the user in the case who wanted to see the following page, the user is traced from left index finger as if to turn over information display area of ​​the paper of this page on the screen to the right, as shown in FIG. 14 as if the page is the display screen in the image, such as turned up is updated to the contents of the next page.

【0084】このとき、ユーザーは人差し指等をべったり画面に接触させて、ある程度の強さでこするように指を横方向に移動させることが必要である。 [0084] At this time, the user is brought into contact with Bettari screen forefinger etc., it is necessary to move the finger in the lateral direction as rubbing with a certain degree of strength. 本実施の形態では、ページめくりの入力を他の入力と区別するために、指が所定の面積以上かつ所定の圧力値以上で画面に接触されて、横方向に移動している場合に、ページめくりが入力されていると判断するからである。 If in the present embodiment, in order to distinguish the inputs of page turning as the other input, the finger is in contact with the screen or a predetermined area and above a predetermined pressure value, is moving laterally, page turning is because determines that inputted.

【0085】なお、ページめくりの方向とページの昇降は、実際の本と同様に縦書きか横書きによって異なる。 [0085] It should be noted that the raising and lowering of the direction and the page of page turning, the actual in the same manner as in the present vary depending on the vertical or horizontal.
従って、縦書きの本の場合はページは右から左に進むので、図14のように指の移動を行うと、次ページがめくれるが、横書きの場合は前ページがめくれる。 Thus, since in the case of vertical writing of the page goes from right to left, when the movement of the finger as shown in FIG. 14, but turned up the next page, if the horizontal writing Mekureru previous page. また逆に、縦書きの本の場合は図14と逆に人差し指で右から左へなぞると、前ページがめくれるが、横書きの場合は次ページがめくれることになる。 Conversely, when the case of vertical writing of the trace from the right index finger 14 opposite to the left, the previous page is turned up, but if the horizontal so that the next page turning-up.

【0086】このように、ユーザーは通常の本を扱うの同様の感覚でページめくり入力が行えるので、操作の習得が容易で使い勝手のよいヒューマンインターフェースを提供できる。 [0086] In this way, because users can perform the normal page turning input in the same sense of dealing with this, it is possible to provide an easy and user-friendly human interface to learn of the operation.

【0087】なおページめくり入力時に、図14に示すように指の動きに応じてページがめくれる途中のイメージ画像を表示してもよいが、直接前ページ画面又は次ページ画面に切り替わる構成でもよい。 [0087] Note that when page turning input, may be displayed in the middle of the images that Mekureru pages in response to the motion of the finger as shown in FIG. 14, may be configured to directly switch before the page screen or next page screen.

【0088】またページめくりに対応して「パラ」等のページがめくれる音を連想できるようなイメージ音を出力してもよい。 [0088] also may output the image sound which can remind the sound turned up a page, such as "para" in response to the page turning.

【0089】 連続ページめくり入力操作 また図15に示すように、「本の厚み」を模した画像(以下「本の厚み」という)240、242をユーザーが所定時間以上タッチし続けると、ページがパラパラと連続してめくれる。 [0089] As shown in the continuous page turning input operation also FIG. 15, when an image was imitating "the thickness" (hereinafter referred to as "the thickness") 240, 242 users continue to touch more than a predetermined time, the page Para Para and turned up in succession. このとき、ユーザーがタッチする強さを変えると、ページめくりの速度を変更することができる。 In this case, changing the strength of the user to touch, it is possible to change the speed of page turning. 即ち、ユーザーはより強くタッチすることでページがめくれる速度を早めることができる。 In other words, the user can page hasten turned up speed by stronger touch. またタッチする強さを弱めることで、ページがめくれる速度を遅くすることができる。 In addition, by weakening the strength to touch, it is possible to slow down the rate at which the page is turned up. ユーザーは自分が読みたいページが見つかった時点で、前記「本の厚み」から手を離すことにより、連続ページめくりを止めて、表示画面を当該ページに位置づけることができる。 User at the time that I found a page you want to read, by releasing the hand from the "book of thickness", to stop the turning continuous page, it is possible to position the display screen to the page.

【0090】なお、前述したページめくりの場合と同様にページの昇降は縦書きか横書きによって異なる。 [0090] It should be noted that the raising and lowering of the page as in the case of turning the pages mentioned above varies depending upon the vertical or horizontal. 従って、縦書きの本の場合は、図15のように左端の本の厚みをタッチし続けると次ページ方向に連続してページがめくれるが、横書きの場合は前ページ方向に連続してページがめくれる。 Therefore, in the case of vertical writing of this, it continues to be touched left of the thick pages continuously in the next page orientation Mekureru, but if the horizontal writing is continuous before the page direction page as in FIG. 15 It turned up. また逆に、縦書きの本の場合は図15 Conversely, if the vertical writing of the 15
と逆に右端の本の厚みをタッチし続けると前ページ方向に連続してページがめくれるが、横書きの場合は次ページ方向に連続してページがめくれる。 Reversed before and hold touching the right edge of the thick continuously in the page direction pages turned up, but if the horizontal turning-up page continuously to the next page orientation.

【0091】このように、ユーザーは通常の本を扱うのと同様の感覚でページめくり入力が行えるので、操作の習得が容易で使い勝手のよいヒューマンインターフェースを提供できる。 [0091] In this way, because users can perform the normal page turning input in the same sense and of dealing with this, it is possible to provide an easy and user-friendly human interface to learn of the operation.

【0092】なお連続ページめくり入力時に、図15に示すように指の動きに応じてページがめくれる途中のイメージ画像を表示してもよいが、直接前ページ画面又は次ページ画面に所定時間おきに切り替わる構成でもよい。 [0092] Note that in the continuous page turning input, may be displayed in the middle of the images that Mekureru pages in response to the motion of the finger as shown in FIG. 15, every predetermined time to direct the previous page screen or next page screen it may be configured to switch.

【0093】またページめくりに対応して「パラパラパラ」等のページがめくれる音を連想できるようなイメージ音を出力してもよい。 [0093] also may output the image sound which can remind the sound turned up a page, such as "Para Para Para" in response to the page turning.
