Abstract

A method of and system for performing actions using a non-intrusive television interface with reduced text input is provided. The method includes receiving incremental text input entered by a user that identifies desired items from within a relatively large search space. The method includes selecting and presenting a collection of items based on comparing the input with descriptive terms associated with the items, monitoring user selections, learning preferences of the user from the monitoring; and selecting a set of items based on comparing subsequent incremental text input entered by the user with the descriptive terms associated with the items. The method includes using a relevance function to order the set of selected items so that a relatively small number of highly relevant items may be identified and presented. The method presents the ordered results on a portion of a display device while simultaneously displaying television content on the display device.
