This international standard defines a consistent set of icons and related functions that are presented by multimedia applications on a computer screen and that users interact with to control such applications. These control icons typically represent actions by association with conventional controls on hardware devices (for example video recorders and compact disk players) that prompt the user to recall the intended actions.
This Standard provides a consistent set of controls for such functions as: Play, Pause, Stop, Rewind, Fast forward, Scan forward, Scan backward, Replay, Play backward, Loop, Record, Go to beginning, Go to previous, Go to next, Go to end, Set volume and Mute.
