Information technology — Gesture-based interfaces across devices and methods — Part 61: Single-point gestures for screen readers

This document defines single-point gestures for screen readers. It specifies movements for clear and classified single-point gestures recognized by the screen readers. It describes single-point gestures performed by a POI (point of interest). The single-point gestures are intended to operate in a consistent manner regardless of systems, platforms, applications or devices. NOTE A POI can be manipulated by using an object such as a fingertip, a stylus, etc.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical

Commission) form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that

are members of ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through

technical committees established by the respective organization to deal with particular fields of

technical activity. ISO and IEC technical committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other

international organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC, also

take part in the work.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for

the different types of document should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/ directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject

of patent rights. ISO and IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent

rights. Details of any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the

Introduction and/or on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/ patents) or the IEC

list of patent declarations received (see https:// patents .iec .ch).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

Introduction

Screen readers are regarded as a default method of accessing ICT devices for people with visual

impairments who are unable to see and understand the screens of these devices. The content on the

screens, such as letters, words, numbers, punctuation, elements and so on, are spoken out loud by screen

readers. Speakers or headphones connected to the ICT device become the main output components.

Single-point gestures are used for screen readers of several commercially available ICT devices

including smart phones, PCs and so on. Potential variety and inconsistency among the single-point

gestures might cause a serious accessibility problem for people with visually impairments. There is

a strong need for international standards to define the single-point gesture so that visually impaired

users do not get confused while they use ICT devices.

The functions of the screen readers include reading an item under the user’s finger, pausing/resuming

speech, speaking the location of the user’s fingers on a screen, such as page numbers or rows, and so on.
