Original Abstract

This paper was inspired by the handicapped people with impaired finger movement. These people have difficulties with handling the mobile touch screen. The touch screen is controlled not by the fingers but by the knuckles and the small size of buttons leads to typing errors and mistakes. That is why we decided to customize the small buttons of the keyboard for knuckles and create a new fully functional keyboard with larger surface of contact for the accuracy.

Czech abstract

Tento článek byl inspirován lidmi s omezeným pohybem prstů. Tito lidé mají problémy s manipulací na dotykovém displeji. V těchto případech je dotykový displej ovládán pomocí kloubů a díky malým rozměrům tlačítek dochází k častým překlepům. Proto jsme se rozhodli přizpůsobit tlačítka na dotykovém displeji pro klouby prstů a vytvořit t ak plně funkční klávesnici.
