  • Patent number: 11829573
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for graphical user interface element accessibility is disclosed. The computer-implemented method includes generating a graphical user interface element rendered on a web page as a virtual button displayed on a display screen of a device. The virtual button is not rendered on the webpage and includes an invocable function mapped to the graphical user interface element. The computer-implemented method further includes moving the virtual button along a periphery of the display screen of the device. A rate at which the virtual button moves along the periphery of the display screen of the device is dynamically modified based on a detected identity of a user of the device.

  • Publication number: 20230082052
    Abstract: An intensity distribution acquirer acquires a first detected intensity distribution detected by a detector with a sample position at which a sample is not present irradiated with light by a standard light source, and acquires a second detected intensity distribution detected by the detector with the sample position at which a sample is not present irradiated with light by an irradiation light source during a first measuring work. An irradiation intensity calculator calculates a radiation intensity at each wavelength of irradiation light of the irradiation light source based on the first detected intensity distribution, the second detected intensity distribution and radiation characteristics of the standard light source. An irradiation photon count calculator calculates an irradiation photon count at each wavelength of irradiation light of the irradiation light source based on an irradiation intensity at each wavelength.
