Exploring Edge-Based Input Techniques for Handheld Text Entry
We are investigating how handheld devices like Palm PDAs and PocketPCs can be used as assistive technologies for computer access by people with motor impairments such as Muscular Dystrophy and Cerebral Palsy. As part of this research, we are developing new input techniques for handheld text entry. People with motor impairments suffer from symptoms that affect their ability to use conventional text entry methods. One symptom is a lack of stability in stylus movements caused by tremor or spasm. In an effort to create a more stable means of text entry, we are researching how to leverage elevated physical edges in our development of new text entry techniques. We present three edge-based techniques: Edge Keyboards, CornerSlide, and EdgeWrite.
