Abstract

On touch-screen mobile phones, text-related applications (e.g., email, notes) usually involve a cursor in editing tasks. However, accurately positioning the cursor to the editing position by touch is often a challenge because of the "fat finger" problem. To improve the accuracy of one-touch cursor positioning, we propose SpeechTouch, a multimodal method that combines imprecise touch input and simple speech input for precise cursor positioning. Our evaluation study shows that this method can significantly improve user performance in cursor positioning on touch screen mobiles.
