Abstract

Paper introduces a vector keyboard for touch screen devices. Characters are typed by drawing a vector starting from a dedicated area. The typing area is divided into three clusters, each containing 9 characters. Measurement of typing speed and of number of typos reveals that the keyboard is comparable to ABCDEF virtual keyboard.
