Johanna Kneifel, Ohoud Alharbi, Wolfgang Stuerzlinger


Mobile text entry has become a main mode of communication. To make text entry as efficient as possible, helpful features, such as autocorrect and speech recognition have been developed.

To analyze this in more depth, we performed semi-structured interviews about participants’ text-entry preferences, specific pain points that occur, and potential suggestions for improving the editing experience.
