Abstract

A menu or prompt interaction in the reverse order that the menu or prompts were presented. For instance, when the operator is interacting with a system's choice list or menu, a cancel key provides the operator the ability to progressively cancel the keyed response, the prompt for the selection made, all choices changed on that menu, or the entire menu.
