Flipper: a new method of digital document navigation
Page flipping is an important part of paper-based document navigation. However this affordance of paper document has not been fully transferred to digital documents. In this paper we present Flipper, a new digital document navigation technique inspired by paper document flipping. Flipper combines speed-dependent automatic zooming (SDAZ) [6] and rapid serial visual presentation (RSVP) [3], to let users navigate through documents at a wide range of speeds. It is particularly well adapted to rapid visual search. User studies show Flipper is faster than both conventional scrolling and SDAZ and is well received by users.
