Description

StarGazer is an innovative 3D interface for gaze-based interaction and target selection using continuous pan and zoom and is designed as a predictive text entry system. The StarGazer typing system address the issue of interaction with graph-based structured data and applications (i.e. gaze typing) and has proven tolerant towards noise-imposed inputs. This allows Stargazer to operate with webcam-based eye trackers or small displays. The system is designed as an experimental interface for text production. The alphabetically layout of is described in XML which allows rapid changes of the layout. The primary goal of StarGazer is to investigate a new text entry paradigm with GazeTalk and Dasher as main sources of inspiration. The system should facilitate fast text entry and hopefully in time be deployed as an AAC-tool.

Main Features

· Type-to-talk

· Letter and word prediction and word completion

· Can be used in with clicks from other input devises (e.g. brain interfaces)

· Noise robust

· Webcam gaze tracker support
