  • Patent number: 11385789
    Abstract: Disclosed herein includes a system, a method, and a device for interacting with displayed items. A contact point can be established with a surface of a contact panel and the contact panel can be operated in a navigation mode during which a selection element, for selecting one or more items of a user interface (UI) in a display of a second device, is maintained at a determined location in the display. The UI can be moved in the display relative to the selection element as the selection element is maintained at the determined location, by moving the contact point on the surface of the contact panel in the navigation mode. At least one item of the UI that is moved within a selection threshold of the selection element can be selected by removing the contact point with the contact panel.

  • Patent number: 11379092
    Abstract: A first interface is accessed. Initial data of a second interface different from the first interface is obtained. A first object in the first interface that is associated with a first value is engaged. Refreshed data of the second interface is obtained. A correlation between the first value and a second object in the refreshed data of the second interface is determined at least in part as a result of a difference between the initial data and the refreshed data corresponding to the first value. That the second object is a final object and the second interface is a final interface is determined based on the correlation. Integration code is generated based on a location of the final object in the second interface, where the integration code causes the device to engage the first object and engage a second object in the first interface to execute the final interface.

  • Patent number: 11262889
    Abstract: A mobile computing device runs multiple activities concurrently and provides at least two modes for interacting with the activities. The user may toggle between the modes as desired. In a full-screen mode, one activity occupies substantially an entire display screen. In a windowed mode, the activity is visible within a window, and a portion of at least one other window is also visible. In the windowed mode, the user can cause windows to move, thereby changing focus from one activity to another. For example, the window having focus can be moved off the screen, to be replaced by a new window that is then given focus. The windows are ordered in a sequence and move in concert with one another; pushing one window off one edge of the screen causes a new window to appear at the opposite edge. A persistent positional relationship can be established among windows.

  • Patent number: 11231848
    Abstract: Example implementations relate to a computing system with a memory resource, a processing resource, and associated with a screen reader providing an audio presentation based on assigning non-positive index values to input sources. In some examples, a first index value is assigned to a first input source of a first panel of a graphical user interface (GUI). Responsive to an action event being received corresponding to the first input source, a second panel is generated. Responsive to the second panel being generated, a second input source of the second panel is generated. A second index value is assigned to the first input source when the second panel is generated, the first index value being not equal to the second index value, and the second index value being a non-positive value.
