Zhai and Kristensson (2003) presented a method of speed-writing for pen-based computing which utilizes gesturing on a stylus keyboard for familiar words and tapping for others. [...] Key Method Based on the use characteristics and human performance observations, we designed and implemented the architecture, algorithms and interfaces of a high-capacity multi-channel pen-gesture recognition system. The system's key components and performance are also reported.Expand
MTIS: A Multi-Touch Text Input System
TLDR
A new multi-touch gesture alphabet that provides the diversity that allows to confine to single strokes that demand less attention is presented and the approach for classifying template defined letters is demonstrated. Expand
Modeling Human Performance of Stroke-Based Text Entry
TLDR
A quantitative motor control model based on a model of cursive handwriting can be applied to predict the influence of the keyboard layout on gesture typing performance, and the "chunking" of multiple movements into a single action is observed for expert users. Expand
Pattern Matching on Stylus Keyboards : A Powerful Approach to Faster and Easier Pen-based Text Entry
TLDR
The strategy supports a gradual and seamless skill transition from novices tracing the letter keys to experts articulating the shorthand gestures, allowing users to use eyes-free openloop motor actions to perform the gestures. Expand
Using Pictographic Representation, Syntactic Information and Gestures in Text Entry
TLDR
This work exploits the capabilities of touch screen mobile devices and a specific language model to enhance the efficiency of text entry tasks and will distribute the roles between the user and the device in a way that allocates the tasks to the side where they can be efficiently done. Expand
The word-gesture keyboard: reimagining keyboard interaction
TLDR
The basic concepts and initial prototype of a word-gesture keyboard are discussed, and exact or statistical modeling of gesture keyboard's speed-accuracy trade-off incorporating human control behavior is under research. Expand
Interlaced QWERTY: accommodating ease of visual search and input flexibility in shape writing
TLDR
A new layout is led to, interlaced QWERTY, which offers excellent separation of word shapes, while still maintaining a low visual search time. Expand
DUCK: a deDUCtive soft keyboard for visually impaired users
TLDR
A software keyboard that aims reducing tactile exploration and speeding up text entry for VI users by relying on the selection of the first letter of a word and rapid and inaccurate typing of the remaining letters. Expand
Novice and Expert Performance of KeyScretch: A Gesture-Based Text Entry Method for Touch-Screens
TLDR
A model for predicting expert text entry rates on finger-based devices is defined and validated, showing that an instance of the KeyScretch method optimized for Italian can be learned in a reasonable time by the users and significantly outperforms the traditional method based on the tapping interaction. Expand
An Approach for Generating Pattern-Based Shorthand Using Speech-to-Text Conversion and Machine Learning
TLDR
A new kind of rapid handwriting scheme is proposed, called the Pattern-Based Shorthand, which employs machine learning to improve its performance with experience, by creating a dictionary of mappings from word to patterns in such a way that the access to existing patterns is faster with progression. Expand
Long short term memory neural network for keyboard gesture decoding
TLDR
This work addresses challenges in gesture typing by combining a variant of recurrent networks, namely Long Short Term Memories with conventional Finite State Transducer decoding, and shows considerable improvement relative to a baseline shape-matching-based system. Expand

Shorthand writing on stylus keyboard
TLDR
The key principles for the SHARK design include high efficiency stemmed from layout optimization, duality of gesturing and stylus tapping, scale and location independent writing, Zipf's law, and skill transfer from tapping to shorthand writing due to pattern consistency. Expand

Touch-typing with a stylus
TLDR
This work presents the design and preliminary analysis of an approach to stylus touch-typing using an alphabet of unistrokes, which are letters specially designed to be used with a stylus, which have the following advantages over ordinary printing. Expand
Quikwriting: continuous stylus-based text entry
TLDR
A “heads-up” shorthand for entering text on a stylus-based computer very rapidly, so that continuous multi-word text of arbitrary length can be written fluidly, even as a single continuous gesture if desired. Expand
EdgeWrite: a stylus-based text entry method designed for high accuracy and stability of motion
TLDR
A study of able-bodied users showed subjects with no prior experience were 18% more accurate during text entry with Edge Write than with Graffiti, with no significant difference in speed. Expand
Implications for a gesture design tool
TLDR
The experiment confirmed that gesture design is very difficult and suggested several ways in which current tools can be improved, the most important improvement being to make the tools more active and provide more guidance for designers. Expand
Movement model, hits distribution and learning in virtual keyboarding
TLDR
Increased visual load when typing previously practiced text did not significantly change users' performance at this stage of learning, but typing unpracticed text did have a performance effect, suggesting a certain degree of text specific learning when typing on virtual keyboards. Expand
