Abstract: Increasingly more people are using tablets. When they enter text, they usually use software keyboards. However, such software keyboards are not specialized in tablets. In this paper, we propose a software keyboard for tablets. Tailored to its user’s use of the index, middle, and third fingers on a tablet screen, the keyboard consists of 2-by-6 buttons. It is focused on Japanese kana characters, and enables the user to enter a character usually with two strokes. We present the results of the experiment that we performed to evaluate the proposed keyboard by comparing it with a standard QWERTY software keyboard. The results indicate a trade-off between the average time lengths for entering a character and the average error rates for entering a word; the proposed keyboard resulted in a lower average error rate but in a longer average time length.
