Text Correction in Pen-Based Computers: An Empirical Comparison of Methods

By Tedde van Gelderen, Anthony Jameson, and Arne Duwaer (1993)

Companion Proceedings of INTERCHI 1993, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, pp. 87–88.

Abstract

Three methods for correcting text in pen-based computers were compared in an experiment involving 30 subjects. In spite of simulated virtually perfect character recognition, the two methods involving handwriting proved 25% slower than the method involving a virtual keyboard. There was essentially no difference between the execution times with the two handwriting methods, which differed in the way of determining when to display the results of symbol recognition: after a certain delay vs. after an explicit request by the user.
