The Radial Scroll Tool: Scrolling Support for Stylus- or Touch-Based Document Interaction
We present Radial Scroll, an interface widget to support scrolling particularly on either small or large scale touch displays. Instead of dragging a thumb in a scroll bar, or using repetitive key presses to page up or down, users gesture anywhere on the document surface such that clockwise gestures advance the document; counter clockwise gestures reverse the document. We describe out prototype implementation and discuss the results of an initial user study.

Abstract

We present Radial Scroll, an interface widget to support scrolling particularly on either small or large scale touch displays. Instead of dragging a thumb in a scroll bar, or using repetitive key presses to page up or down, users gesture anywhere on the document surface such that clockwise gestures advance the document; counter clockwise gestures reverse the document. We describe out prototype implementation and discuss the results of an initial user study.
