Most of the work on Dasher has been done by David Ward.

We have made three assessments of Dasher, comparing it with alternative text entry systems on three platforms.

  • One-handed text-entry using mouse alone
  • Text-entry on a pocket PC with a stylus
  • Text-entry with no hands, using Dasher with an Eyetracker (Further information about hardware)
The details can be found in David Ward's PhD thesis and in the publications listed below.
