An error correction strategy that can be applied to existing chord based text entry systems is proposed. The strategy is capable of correcting 99.1% of all single bit errors (insertions and deletions) and 98.1% of certain double bit errors (substitutions) occurring in words. The strategy compares the entered words against entries in a reference wordlist. A genetic algorithm is used to search for the close-to-optimal chord-to-character mapping in terms of single bit errors, certain double bit… CONTINUE READING
