In collaboration with Microsoft Research, we studied the accuracy and precision of eye tracking in practical, everday tracking conditions on over 80 people. We propose design implications for adaptive, error-aware gaze applications, that consider the large variations of eye tracking quality.

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…
