ASPS Secure Web Browser For Kiosks
The ArtistScope Web Reader switches from any sized window to
full-screen kiosk browser mode without a toolbar or a status bar at the click of a
button, providing maximum screen area on the desktop. This is most useful for:
Kiosk mode is often used for removing options to enhance the security for web
content. However, with ArtisReader, that is no longer necessary since you will

How To Launch A Web Reader Window In Kiosk Mode
Each web page can contain special meta-tags with instructions for ArtisReader
to decide how it will display its browser window. So to make the current page
open in full screen kiosk mode, all you have to do is include on the web page
(in between the head tags) is
the following tag:
<meta name="artis-kioskmode" value="true">
As the reader's browser window opens, the toolbar (usually at the top) and the
status bar (at the bottom) will disappear to maximize the available screen area.
Unlike other kiosk and full screen windows, ArtisReader doesn't need to cover
the computer's task bar (the one at the bottom of your screen). In fact, it is
purposely left to easily access and open other applications.
How To Collapse The Web Reader Kiosk Window

As with kiosk mode, the web designer can add meta-tags for the width and height
of a browser window. Each individual page can also be set to open at a
different size if need be:
<meta name="artis-width" value="800">
<meta name="artis-height" value="600">
Here the window size has been set to 800 x 600 pixels.
How To Adjust The Web Reader Browser Window Size
Regardless of what size has been set, the operator can always adjust it by
click-dragging the window frame edges and corners like how it is done with
normal web browsers.
