Abstract:Many studies on text entry and their underlying motor skills have been conducted, in most cases these studies have focused on typing on a standard keyboard. However text entry on soft keyboards, which are used on touchscreens, has not been given the same amount of attention. This study aims to show how motor skill development tends to differ for people diagnosed with developmental dyslexia and how this influences their final performances when using soft keyboards. The way of recording and analyzing these learning processes for the development of motor skills are practically new to the field of HCI. Although the results of this study were found not to be significant this study has shown how nonlinear regression can be used as an analysis tool in the field of HCI.
