Researchers at Aalto University provide the first analysis of typing strategies. This paper revisits the present understanding of typing, which originates mostly from studies of trained typists using the ten- finger touch typing system. Their goal is to characterise the majority of present-day users who are untrained and employ diverse, self-taught techniques. In a transcription task, they compare…

Researchers at Aalto University present a novel model to predict error rates in temporal pointing. Although temporal pointing is common in interactions requiring temporal precision, rhythm, or synchrony, no previous HCI model predicts error rates as a function of task properties. This model assumes that users have an implicit point of aim but their ability to elicit the…

Researchers at Aalto University contribute a novel technique to facilitate skim reading. In response to motion blur and short object exposure when scrolling large documents, they present Spotlights, a scrolling technique that complements regular continuous scrolling at high speeds (2–20 pages/s). They present a novel design rule informed by theories of the human visual system for dynamically selecting objects and…
