Title:
CHARACTER INPUT METHOD, AND CHARACTER INPUT PROGRAM, RECORDING MEDIUM, AND INFORMATION PROCESSING DEVICE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2017/047304
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
According to the present invention, in a virtual surface (first layer L1) including a position where a gesture satisfying a predetermined condition is detected, an array of character keys 100 to which a plurality of characters are allocated is arranged. While a gesture including a movement along the first layer L1 is being detected, a selection position with respect to the array of the character keys 100 is moved according to the movement. Under the condition where a predetermined character key 100 in the array is selected, when the movement direction of the gesture is changed to the direction away from the first layer L1, characters allocated to the character key 100 being selected are arranged outside the first layer L1 such that the relative positions thereof with respect to a virtual axis extending through the character key 100 are different from one another, and then when a gesture including a movement toward any character is detected, the character arranged in the movement destination is selected as an input character.
