Gestural Text Entry for Elderly Users of Interactive Television

Abstract

Interactive television provides useful services for older people. These include social networking tools, video on demand, and broadcast TV. Many of the Internet-mediated services require text entry. The usual multi-tap text entry supplied with TV remote control is not suitable to many older people. In this paper, we evaluate WeSlide, a gestural text entry technique that uses the Wiimote as the input device. We conducted a study to compare WeSlide with the multi-tap technique. WeSlide was faster and less error prone and users strongly preferred it over multi-tap.
