Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document defines single-point gestures for common system actions used in information and communication technology (ICT) systems. It specifies movements for clear and classified gestures recognized by the systems and applications. The single-point gestures are performed using an input device (e.g. a mouse, a stylus, etc.) or a body part (e.g. a fingertip, a hand, etc.). These single-point gestures are intended to operate in a consistent manner regardless of the system, platform, application or device.
NOTE ICT systems include, but are not limited to, digital televisions, set-top boxes, video game consoles, communication devices, Internet devices, entertainment devices and personal computers.
