OATS_201504 Injected Errors Study 1



Older Adults Text-entry Studies (OATS):
Our goal was to capture participants’ typing behaviour during input in a lab setting and determine the efficiency of the highlighting keyboard error support mechanism. In this experiment we introduced a new type of experiment, designed to overcome the problem of participants typing in very carefully (i.e. the “injected error” algorithm). The experiment involved both older and younger users, in different sessions.
