Instead, we propose single-stroke text entry on telephone keypads, with the ambiguity resolved by exploiting information-theoretic constraints. We develop algorithms capable of correctly identifying up to 99% of the characters in typical English text, sufficient for such applications as telephones for the hearing-impaired, E-mail without a terminal, and advanced voice-response systems.
A demonstration of the system will be given after the talk.
WARNING: This work is of no theoretical or biological interest. It is offered only to fill the seminar slot on short notice. I do think it is kinda neat, however.
This is joint work with Harald Rau.
