On the application of text input metrics to handwritten text input

05382.ReadJanet.Paper.514.pdf (0.3 MB)


This paper describes the current metrics used in text input research, considering those used for discrete text input as well as those used for spoken input. It examines how these metrics might be used for handwritten text input and provides some thoughts about different metrics that might allow for a more fine grained evaluation of recognition improvement or input accuracy.
