Description

METHOD AND FITNESS FOR AUTOMATIC DISPLAY OF INTERNET DOCUMENTS

The present invention relates to a process and an automatic matching device Internet document display. It applies in particular to navigation via a touch screen and the screens for the visually impaired and disabled. When a webmaster or a software publisher wants the man-machine or screens displayed to the user interfaces can be used with touch screens or by visually impaired or disabled, it is currently obliged to provide a version of its software specifically dedicated these uses. Indeed, the dimensions of characters and interactive elements (eg hyperlinks) standard software versions do not allow a good visualization of a visually impaired or a good selection with a touch screen (the size of the end of the finger is too high) or a disabled. Because the cost of these specific adaptations and low market they represent, regardless of software or websites are suitable for these purposes and may be used only with pointing devices capable of discriminating the pixels, for example mice . The present invention aims to overcome these drawbacks. To this end, the present invention aims, in a first aspect, an automatic display adaptation method for an Internet document with elements of interaction accessible to a user, characterized in that it comprises: - a step search of the interaction elements in said Internet document

- a step of modifying said visual attributes of Internet document interaction elements and - a step of displaying said document on the Internet comprising the interaction elements with modified visual attributes. With these arrangements, the adaptation of the Internet document, human-machine interface or site page, is performed automatically, in real time. For example, changes to visual attributes are enlargements of the dimension of interaction elements, which makes them usable by a disabled, a visually impaired and / or a touch screen. The present invention thus provides access to a website on an information terminal with touch screen, without keyboard or mouse or trackball (in French trackball). The invention also creates a service site or web information (in French canvas) which is available both on the web and on the terminals. The present invention also allows the use of tablet PCs, without a keyboard or mouse or trackball, pointing with your finger or a stylus. The present invention transforms a mouse ergonomics, in which the main pages developed with web tools are dedicated to a touch ergonomics, automatically and immediately. According to particular features, the method as briefly described above further comprises a step of pointing an element of interaction by said user and the step of changing visual attributes performs an enlargement of visual attributes at least a portion of the interaction elements. According to particular features, said pointing step is performed with a touch screen. Thanks to each of these provisions, the user can easily select a displayed item interaction. According to particular features, the method as briefly described above comprises, in addition, when the pointing step, a step of searching for interaction elements having an input box and if the interaction element selected is an interactive element having an input area, is carried out a step of displaying a virtual keyboard. Thanks to these features, the virtual keyboard that allows the entry of a free text or symbols, is automatically displayed when the user needs it. According to particular features, the method as briefly described above comprises a setting step during which the value of defining at least one parameter and changes of visual attributes carried out during the step of modification visual attributes depend on each parameter value set in the setting step. Thanks to these features, the method can be adapted to different touch screens, different ways to score or different levels of discomfort clairvoyance or disability. According to particular features, said setting step includes a step of selecting, on a graphic element, a main magnification factor of interaction elements. According to particular features, said modifying step comprises a first step of changing visual attributes of the interaction of elements that takes account of at least one parameter, each parameter being defined for at least one type of interaction element and a second step of changing visual attributes of non-interactive elements that takes account of at least one parameter, each parameter is defined for at least one type of non-interactive element. Thanks to these features, the design of the Internet document may remain harmonious whole with particular value in the interaction elements. The present invention seeks, in a second aspect, an automatic display adaptation device of a web document with elements of interaction accessible to a user, characterized in that it comprises: - an element search means interaction in said Internet document; - means for modifying visual attributes of interaction elements of said web document and - a display means of said Internet document comprising the interaction elements with modified visual attributes. The advantages, specific objects and features of this device are similar to those of the method as succinctem ent described above, they are not repeated here. Other advantages, aims and features of the present invention will emerge from the description which follows, given in an explanatory and non-limiting purpose, with reference to the accompanying drawings in which: - Figure 1 represents, schematically, one embodiment particular of the adapter object of the present invention; - Figure 2 shows a flowchart of steps performed for implementing a particular embodiment of the object adaptation process of the present invention, and - Figures 3 to 5 show video sets before and after modification by the particular modes of carrying out the method and / or the adapter device object of the present invention. Before describing the figures given below, definitions of terms used in the description. Throughout the description, the term "web document" a set of elements (eg text, images, buttons ...) visually displayed on the screen via a program called browser software or Internet browser, eg, Netscape, Internet Explorer, Mozilla (trademarks). All Internet document has an address called URL (Uniform Resource Locator acronym for Uniform Resource Locator). For example a file in HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is an Internet document. The Internet document can be on the user's computer (local) or on another machine (remote). Throughout the specification, the term "interaction element" an element present in the web document that allows the user to communicate with the browser and provides the ability to interact with the document. For example, a hyperlink is an element of interaction. Clicking on a link takes the user to another position in the document or to another document. An edit box is also an element of interaction. By entering data into the area, the user provides information to the browser. Throughout the description, the term "non-interactive element" an element in the document that the Internet has no role of interaction between the user and the browser. It is an exclusively visual. For example, a text without hyperlink is a non-interactive element. Before describing the figures given below, a description of the mode of operation of the particular embodiments illustrated in FIGS. Each element of interaction (links, publishing areas ....) and each non-interactive element (text, image ... not clickable) Internet document is associated with a set of visual attributes or parameters . In the embodiments illustrated in the figures, the link is characterized by the values ​​of seven parameters (defined in HTML code with "border-style", "height", "border-width", "padding-right", "padding -left "," padding-top "and" bottom padding "). The editing area may, in turn, be characterized by two parameters which are related to the size of the font on the font and the height of the edit box. Each element in the generic sense (links, publishing areas) have these specific parameters (as defined in the feature as border-style ...). It may be characterized by one or several parameters common to several elements, such as "height". Thus, each element in the generic sense (interaction element or noninteractive element), has these own parameter values. To change (in the embodiments below to enlarge) all the elements of a web document or "page", one increases the values ​​of all the parameters that characterize the visual attributes. Although there is a magnification that provides a benchmark for expansion. To this end, using different magnifications. The primary reference magnification factor F1 is defined by the positioning of a virtual potentiometer (see step 217, Figure 2). The main factor F1 is a landmark. Each interaction element or each non-interactive element is characterized by parameters. Each parameter is associated with a coefficient (secondary magnification) F2i, i varying from 1 to n where n is the total number of parameters. In the illustrated embodiments, for the link, so there are six F2i coefficients (since the concept of "border-style" is not subject to extension). The modified value (or enlarged) of a parameter is obtained by multiplying the value of the parameter by the principal magnification factor F1 and divided by coefficient F2i said parameter. There may be multiple parameters of an element have the same value F2i coefficient. It is also possible that two elements in the generic sense (a link, an edit box) have, for some of the parameters that characterize them, identical F2i coefficients. This is often the case when F2i coefficients are related to the parameters of visual attributes that represent a single characteristic or magnitude as the size of a font. All these variables F1 and F2i serve to maintain a uniform scale factor for the expansion and allow to take into account the different nature of such magnitude that a font size, such that the height of a button. To comply with the visual of the page, the adaptation of interactive elements can not ignore these factors or to consider in addition to the positional term context (adaptation of a non-interactive element then being a function of its position in the page or vis-à-vis other elements, interactive or not) and / or relational term (the element is linked to another member, interactive or not, the adaptation of the non-member interactive then being a function of the existence of at least one relationship with another element and / or the nature of the relationship). This is for example the case of the cells (non-interactive elements) an array having elements for interaction. Modifying a link (interaction element) present in a cell changes, for example, the visual attributes (width and height) of said cell so that the link can be fully visible after adaptation. Respect the visual can then result in changes to other table cells. It is seen in FIG 1, first, an information terminal 100 (forming a matching device in the sense of the present invention) having a CPU 105, a display screen 110, touch screen 115, a modem 120 and a program memory 125, and, on the other hand, a site server 150 having a page memory 155 and a modem 160, said information 100 and said site server terminal 150 being connected by a network communication 140. The CPU 105 is of known type. For example, it is a personal computer CPU (English personal computer or PC). The display screen 110 is of known type. This, for example, a CRT (Cathode ray tube in English or CRT), liquid crystal display (English liquid crystal display or LCD) or plasma display. The display screen 110 is adapted to display visual sets (eg web pages in HTML or XML) with interactive elements (eg hyperlinks, input boxes, buttons, ...) . The touch screen 115 is of known type. It is coupled to the display screen to allow selection by a user, an interaction element displayed by the display screen 110. Alternatively, the information terminal uses other means of pointing that the touch screen, such as a mouse, for example. The modem 120 and the modem 160 enable the information terminal 100 and the server 150 to communicate via the communication network 140, for example to allow the user of the information terminal 100 to browse a website maintained by the server 150 to access and / or generate e-mails. The program memory 125 retains, among others and in addition to a touch screen control driver and a display driver 110 on the display screen, on the one hand, Internet browsing software or browser and, on the other hand, a software implementing the method of the present invention. For example, the software implementing the method of the present invention implements the steps illustrated with reference to Figure 2. In general, the latter software implements the following steps to perform an automatic display adaptation a web document (page of a site information stored by the information terminal or page of a site maintained by the server 150): - a search step of the interaction elements in said Internet document

(Eg hyperlinks, buttons and text boxes); - a step of changing visual attributes of Internet document of said interaction elements without adding interaction element (e.g., by expansion of these interaction elements) and - a display of said document on the Internet comprising the step elements of interaction with altered visual attributes on the display screen 115. the communication network 140 is, for example, the Internet, and enables many user stations and information kiosks to access many websites , in electronic mailboxes, ... The information terminal 100 is a particular embodiment of an automatic display of a web document adaptation device comprising elements interaction accessible to a user, object of the present invention, which comprises: - a searching means of interaction elements in said Internet document, means constituted by the CPU 105, memory progr flame 125 and the modem 120; - means for modifying visual attributes of said interaction elements Internet document without adding interaction element, means constituted by the CPU 105 and the program of memory 1 5; - a display means of said Internet document comprising the interaction elements with modified visual attributes, means constituted by the CPU 105, the program memory 125 and the display screen 110. It is observed that adaptation is configurable by document template. A document template is a file that contains the definition of adaptation, that is to say the information to make the change visual attributes of the elements of interaction and non-interactive elements. For example, this file contains F2i magnification factors and / or a Boolean value indicating that the links should be supervised or not. There is no limit to the number of document templates. There is a standard template that is by default considered for all Internet documents. It is possible to associate an Internet page or document or set of pages or Internet documents to a document template. The interaction elements define all the elements that interface between man and machine. So they can easily interact with the pointing device, these elements are enlarged according to the method and device object of the present invention. Without being exhaustive, these interactions include: - links - edit boxes - radio buttons - the checkbox (in French check box), - buttons, - the combo box (in French with list edit box) and - image maps, that is to say the images associated with a hyperlink. Non-interactive elements define all the elements of a page that does not serve as an interface between man and machine. However, according to the particular characteristics of the present invention, these non-interactive elements are also modified for the following reasons:

1 / either to reflect the context of interaction elements and to avoid edge effects which involve: - non interactivity of an element of interaction (e.g., enlargement of a combobox (interaction element) contained in the cell (not interactive element) of an array may involve a truncated combobox and thus make it non-interactive if the table cell is smaller than the combobox). - a disturbance of the display (e.g., increase of a button (interaction element) can shift a line (not interactive element) which is close to him inducing imperfectly straight line).

2 / Let respect to visually consistent with the changes of visual attributes of the interaction elements (for example, when the interaction elements are increased substantially, the text of the document must also be changed), without being exhaustive, non-interactive elements include: - the text without hyperlink - non-clickable images ... it is observed in Figure 2, a setting step 201 of the operation according to the method of the present invention. In step 201 is defined, in particular, a main magnification factor F1 and factors secondary expansion F2i explained above. Then, during a browsing step 202, the user navigates, by implementing Internet browsing software, in a set of pages or Internet documents stored locally or accessed remotely, for example over the internet. The email address of a document called a URL (Uniform Resource Location) can be communicated to the browser either input or by selecting from a menu or a combo box, or by favorites or by another Internet document by pointing to a link (step 213). Each page is a web document with elements of interaction that allows a user to browse, view or generate transactions, such as e-mail or online transactions. During a loading step 203, is responsible for adaptation of the page settings. Knowing the URL of the web paper to load the document template associated with it. If there are no associated model, then this is the standard template that is used to set the adjustment. During a search of step 204 is carried out inventory of the page elements. Research is especially page interaction elements. For example, for a web document in HTML, the search for interaction elements is to look for HTML tags. For example, a link is a tag <A href=...> ... </A>. It is also looking for non-interactive elements. For example, a table is defined by the <TABLE> and <TD>. This step inventory allows the creation of mapping elements sought each with the determination of their existing visual attributes (including position and size) and identifying their relationships with other elements. In a modification step 205, modifying the visual attributes of the interaction elements. For example, they applied the F1 expansion coefficient and high magnification F2i for each parameter considered and / or it supervises and / or it spreads from one another and / or to changing the font and / or color. Thus, a larger and a setting value of each interaction zone allowing, for example, the use of a touch screen with a finger or a stylus. For example, for a web document in HTML, changing the visual attributes that are primarily geometric properties is to add visual attributes or modify existing visual HTML attributes. For the link, it is possible in particular to add the following visual attributes: - border-style (in French, border style) - height (height in French), - border-width (bordering French height) - padding-right (white French or right margin) - padding-left (white French or left margin), - padding-top (white French or margin top) - padding-bottom (white French or bottom margin). For example, the visual elements displayed in the following table the left column correspond to a definition given in HTML in the right column. The first line of the table corresponds to an element of interaction before the modification of its visual attributes and the second row of the table corresponds to the same interaction element after a change of its visual attributes. Visual example HTML.

(Google is a registered trademark) During a modification step 206, modifying the visual attributes of the non-interactive elements. For example, changes in the police taking into account the main magnification factor F1 and the secondary magnification own F2i each parameter for the non-interactive element considered. These modifications are made in the same manner as for the interaction elements. As explained above, it is possible, in some cases, do not take these factors or to consider in addition to the context of the element. This is for example the case of the membership relationship that is to say, when the non-interactive element (eg a cell) contains an interaction element (eg, a link, a combobox ...) then the minimum dimensions of the non-interactive element are dependent from that of the interaction element. During the cooling step 207, it refreshes the display of the page on the display screen. In a step 208, it is determined whether a score was made. Otherwise, it repeats step 208, If so, during a step 209, it is determined whether the score was made on an element of interaction (With input device, the user can activate an element 'interaction.). If so, during a step 210, it is determined whether the interaction element is a text box. If so, during a step 211, the display of a virtual keyboard is induced, for example at the bottom of the display screen. So, if the user clicks on an element of interaction that serves to enter alphanumeric information, so a virtual keyboard automatically appears on the screen. Then, during a step 212, the user performs the input symbols that wishes to take and the process returns to step 208 after removing the virtual keyboard. It is observed that the validation key ( "enter" or "entry") may correspond to a score of a navigation element (step 213). If the result of step 210 is negative, the interaction element is a navigation element, the processing is performed, step 213. Thus, if the user clicks on an element of interaction that serves to navigate in Internet documents, then a navigation occurs. Then, the process returns to step 202. If the result of step 209 is negative, that is to say, if the score was made outside an interaction element, in a step 215 is treated a selection in a menu browser adapted to the pointing device, a scrollbar, step 216 and / or a potentiometer, step 217. the user uses the menu, this scrollbar and / or the potentiometer for changing at least one operating parameter of the device and returns to step 203. Thus, with the input device, the user may interact outside of the navigation area (menu, scrollbar, adaptation potentiometer). The browser has the classic functions to enable Internet browsing. These functions are activated by pressing a button outside the navigation area, button whose dimensions are adapted to input devices. Some functions, such as "Search", "Favorites" ... induce navigation. The adjustment knob is operable to modify in real time the adjustment parameters by the user. The potentiometer can reduce or increase the quantities which is expressed visually particularly by reducing or enlarging the content interaction of elements in the Internet document. For example, for an Internet HTML document, if it was chosen to treat the link according to the code shown in step 5, then the potentiometer is decreasing or increasing the value 20 used four times in the second row, column right of this picture.

a button can replace the potentiometer is observed described in the specification and provide the same functionality, with F1 parameter values ​​varying continuously or discretely. The present invention is applicable to any pointing device. For a mouse, a trackball (French trackball) or a stylus, adaptation overcomes the accuracy of the order of a pixel and causes a great flexibility of use. For less precise device such as the finger via a touch screen, allows adaptation to browse Internet documents that have been developed for a mouse interface. It is observed in Figure 3, schematically, a web page 300 of a search engine (Google, trademark), as it occurs with Microsoft Internet Explorer (registered trademark). It is observed in Figure 4, schematically, the web page 400 of a search engine illustrated in Figure 3, as it presents itself after changing the visual attributes, in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention. It can be seen by comparing Figures 3 and 4 that the interaction elements 310, which were small in size, difficult to identify and very close to each other have become the interaction elements 410 of larger size, flanked by frames 420 and separated from each other by a distance sufficient for a touch screen can discriminate. It is observed, in Figure 5, schematically, the web page 500 of a search engine illustrated in Figure 4, as it appears when the user selects an input area with a pointing device. There is a virtual keyboard 530 was added at the bottom of the current page. The present invention is not limited to the use of touch screens, but extends on the contrary, all the less precise pointing devices as the mouse and, for example for disabled or visually impaired, to use the mouse. The present invention is not limited to the terminals and computers for disabled or visually impaired. Rather, it applies to any computer, tablet
