Title: Method of reading pattern image, apparatus for reading pattern image, information processing method, and program for reading pattern image

Abstract: Disclosed is a method of capturing and reading a pattern image having three or more pages generated from predetermined information using a capturing section provided in a reading apparatus. The pattern image is configured such that each page includes relevant page information indicating a position of the relevant page and the pages are displayed on a display screen sequentially and successively at a time interval and cyclically and repetitively. The method includes a step of, when two pages of the pattern image have been read, causing the reading apparatus to predict a capturing timing by the capturing section for each remaining unread page from a capturing time interval between the two pages and the relevant page information of each of the two pages, and to perform control such that each remaining unread page of the pattern image is captured and read by the capturing section with the predicted capturing timing.
