Abstract

Modern text entry systems, especially for touch screen phones and novel devices, rely on complex underlying technologies such as error correction and word
suggestion. Furthermore, for global deployment a vast number of languages have to be supported. Together this has raised the entry bar for new text entry
techniques, which makes developing and testing a longer process thus stifling innovation. For example, testing a new feedback mechanism in comparison to a
stock keyboard now requires the researchers to support at least slip correction and probably word suggestion. This paper introduces OpenAdaptxt: an open source community driven text input platform to enable development of higher quality text input solutions. It is the first commercial-grade open source enabling
technology for modern text entry that supports both multiple platforms and dictionary support for over 50 spoken languages.
