Thu, Ye Kyaw (2008): Positional prediction: consonant cluster prediction text entry method for Burmese (Myanmar language). In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2008 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems April 5-10, 2008. pp. 3783-3788.

I am investigating a consonant cluster prediction text entry method for Myanmar language based on positional vowel information. The concept of this method is adapted by inspecting and carefully considering the nature of Myanmar language word formations or hand writing orders. According to the initial user study with our software keyboard prototype, users were able to type at 41.57 characters per minute with mouse, 41.84 characters per minute with stylus pen, 14.76 characters per minute with Logitech dual thumbstick game pad and 20.52 characters per minute with Nintendo Wii remote controller. These numbers are sure to improve as further refinements on program interface are made. The merits of the proposed predictive text input method is that even first time users can type Myanmar sentences with appropriate typing speed, and that this approach is applicable for various kinds of mobile devices (see Figure.1) and extendable for other similar syllabic languages such as Khmer (language of Cambodia), Nepali (language of Nepal), Thai (language of Thailand) and Hindi (one of the languages of India) etc.

Thu, Ye Kyaw and Urano, Yoshiyori (2007): Positional mapping: keyboard mapping based on characters writing positions for mobile devices. In: Proceedings of the 2007 International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces 2007. pp. 110-117.

Keyboard or keypad layout is one of the important factors to increase user text input speed especially on limited keypad such as mobile phones. This paper introduces novel key mapping method "Positional Mapping" (PM) for phonetic scripts such as Myanmar language based on its characters writing positions. Our approach has made key mapping for Myanmar language very simple and easier to memorize. We have developed positional mapping text input prototypes for mobile phone keypad, PDA, customizable keyboard DX1 input system and dual-joystick game pad, and conducted user studies for each prototype. Evaluation was made based on users' actual typing speed of our four PM prototypes, and it has proved that first time users can type at appropriate average typing speeds (i.e. 3min 47sec with DX1, 4min 42sec with mobile phone prototype, 4min 26sec with PDA and 5min 30sec with Dual Joystick Game Pad) to finish short Myanmar SMS message of 6 sentences. Positional Mapping can be extended to other phonetic scripts, which we present with a Bangla mobile phone prototype in this paper.
