Description

[0002] The present invention relates to a smart keyboard and an automatic notification method,

In particular, the present invention relates to a method and apparatus for automatically notifying a user of a typed input mode, and more particularly, to a method and apparatus for automatically notifying a typed input mode by visually or tactually knowing that the electronic document creation user is not intended, The present invention relates to an automatic notification smart keyboard and an automatic notification method that can be implemented in the keyboard itself and can be automatically executed in a plug-and-play format without requiring a separate setup.

In general, keyboards are traditionally used to facilitate, induce, or mediate user input into computing devices (e.g., desktop computers and laptop computers).

The traditional keyboard mechanism has the function or advantage of providing immediate or substantially immediate tactile feedback if there is user-actuation of the keys on the keyboard.

A traditional keyboard typically consists of a plurality of key arrays that represent characters of various Korean, English, and numbers.

Additionally, traditional keyboards also include arrays of keys associated with special functions represented by alphanumeric icons of F1 through F12.

Moreover, keys that specify special functions (for example, insert function, page up and page down function, and erase function) are also usually found on conventional keyboards.

A key cab is a small plastic cover typically placed on a key switch included in a computer keyboard.

Keycaps have traditionally been used to display or display characters associated with keycaps, alphabets, numbers, or keycaps.

In general, movement or insertion of a key cap caused by a user causes the corresponding key switch disposed under the keycap to be driven.

 A major drawback or limitation of traditional keyboards is that the objects displayed by individual keys of the keyboard, such as fixed characters or numbers, are fixed information.

Unlike the touch screen interface, existing traditional keyboards do not provide the user with a dynamically changing interface that allows the user to input, direct, and command.

On the other hand, the touch screen interface is becoming increasingly popular.

Computers and other appliances that include a touch screen, such as Apple's iPhone, provide the user with relatively more intuitive computer control (e.g., transfer of input).

In addition, the touch screen interface provides the programmer with an interface tailored to the individual needs that can be requested and benefited in a particular application.

However, a common disadvantage associated with traditional touch screen interfaces is the lack of haptic feedback or tactile feedback that allows the user to identify the touch screen input indicated by the user.

Until recently, input device technology used as a user interface (UI) in an electronic terminal such as a computer or a mobile communication terminal has been improved. However, a user still uses a keyboard mainly as an input device, The user is typing while watching the key cap with letters or symbols displayed as the immaturity of the keyboard, especially when inputting a foreign language.

On the other hand, the keyboard is capable of inputting a plurality of characters through a single key cap to accommodate a lot of characters. For example, upper and lower case are separated by "Caps Lock" key, &Quot; key, so that various characters can be inputted.

Generally, when a user uses an electronic document editor, he or she can use both Korean and English.

At this time, it is necessary to type Hangul, but it is often the case that the Hangul is typed because the user has to type in English or type in English.

Especially, when a user who is not skilled in writing an electronic document sees only a keyboard rather than a monitor, it is very frequently used when he / she typed in Hangul mode and typed English on the screen and vice versa.

In other words, conventionally, only Hangul can be used in Hangul mode, and only English can be used in Hangul mode. Therefore, in order to correct Hangul when typing English in Hangul mode or Hangul in Hangul mode, did.

Therefore, it is troublesome to correct errors occurring due to the mode conversion, and the typing time is delayed due to re-input after deletion, which lowers the efficiency of electronic document creation work.

In order to overcome this problem, MS Word and the electronic document editor such as Hangul recognizes it and added the function to automatically switch between the hunting mode and the hunter mode.

However, in other electronic document editors used in portable terminals such as desktop PCs and smart phones in addition to the electronic document editor, there is a limit in that the automatic mode switching function is not universally applied.

In order to solve these problems and limitations, the present inventors have found that when the typing mode is not intended by the user, the keyboard key board itself or the keyboard control module, The inventor invented a smart keyboard and an automatic notification method in which the input mode can be visually or tentatively recognized before typing or immediately after the first input of typing.
