Adding mid-air gestures to help editing on smartwatch text entry

Conference Paper

Published in:

ACM CHI 2017 Workshop on Ubiquitous Text Interaction, Denver, Colorado, USA (2017)


Text entry has been shown to have reasonable performance on smart watches but space is very tight and editing has been shown to be a major factor slowing down text entry on many devices. In this position paper we propose use of mid-air gestures to control editing functions so that screen estate and touch gestures can be focused on text entry.
