(CHI ’19) Yiqin Lu, Chun Yu, Shuyi Fan, Xiaojun Bi, Yuanchun Shi
Typing on a split keyboard often requires eye movement and attention switching, which slows users down and increases fatigue. We explore peripheral typing, where a user focuses her visual attention on the output text and keeps the split keyboard in peripheral vision. Our results showed peripheral typing reduced attention switching, enhanced user experience and increased overall performance (27 WPM, 28% faster) over the typical typing mode.
