Project Summary Project Information

Text entry applications such as word processing, email notes and instant messaging all share a common keyboard scheme. For people who are deaf, these application tools have been effective in communicating with others who cannot sign. Though this project may help everyone, this may have a greater impact on individuals who are deaf. Once completed, a future project mission may be to discover new and untapped keyboard applications.

Premise: During the act of speaking and signing, the integration of thought and emotion occurs simultaneously and seamlessly with little overt thought. In contrast, text entry differentiates or separates thought and associated emotion. The keyboard only captures key strokes and thus loses emotional expression, even though the act of typing may carry some covert emotions. The goal of this project is to take these learned skills of speaking and signing and use them to enable us to enrich the value of text entry.

P10002 Dynamic Keyboard Phase I Project, will capture key strike dynamics. Starting in the Winter Quarter 2009, P10003 Dynamic Keyboard Phase II Project will integrate P10002 Phase I keys into a full keyboard. At the completion of Dynamic Keyboard Phases I and II, Phase III will develop a dynamic keyboarding system in 2010. This will include Galisano Software Engineers (SEs) and College of Engineering Engineers (CEs, EEs) to integrate into text entry applications such as word processing, email notes and instant messaging all share a common keyboard scheme.
