Tiivistelmä

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.
