Abstract

Gaze typing for people with extreme motor disabilities like full body paralysis can be extremely slow and discouraging for daily communication. The most popular technique in gaze typing, known as dwell time typing, is based on fixation on every letter of the word for a fixed amount of time, to type the word [1-3]. In this preliminary study, the goal was to test a new technique of gaze typing that requires fixating only on the first and the last letter of the word. Analysis of the data collected suggests that the newly described technique is 63% faster than dwell time typing for novices in gaze interaction, without influencing the error rate. Using this technique would have a tremendous impact on communication speed, comfort and working efficiency of people with disabilities.
