Abstract [en]

Typing is probably always going to be an contemporary topic, with

the absolute goal of transferring text between the user and a technical

device freely. This report means to examine a typing technique, where

user drawn continuous lines on a virtual keyboard get transfered into

words, also known as


The report concludes that using a fairly simple algorithm combined

with a few optimizations, it is possible to implement a swype accurate

enough to be considered a realistic alternative to current typing methods

on devices with touch screens.

Abstract [sv]

Textinmatning kommer troligtvis alltid vara ett aktuellt ämne, där

målet är att användaren skall kunna förmedla text till teknisk apparatur

obehindrat. Denna rapport undersöker en textinmatningsmetod där

kontinuerliga streck på ett tangentbord översätts till ord, även känt som



Rapporten finner att det med en förållandevis enkel algoritm och ett

fåtal optimeringar är fullt möjligt implementera ett swype tillräckligt nogrannt

för att vara ett realistiskt alternativ till nuvarande inmatningsmetoder

för enheter med pekskärm.
