    When using tablet computers, smartphones, or digital pens, human users perform movements with a stylus or their fingers that can be analyzed by the kinematic theory of rapid human movements. In this paper, we present a user-centered system for signature verification that performs such a kinematic analysis to verify the identity of the user. It is one of the first systems that is based on a direct ... View full abstract»

  • A User-Centered Segmentation Method for Complex Historical Manuscripts Based on Document Graphs

    In historical manuscripts, humans can detect handwritten words, lines, and decorations with lightness even if they do not know the language or the script. Yet for automatic processing this task has proven elusive, especially in the case of handwritten documents with complex layouts, which is why semiautomatic methods that integrate the human user into the process are needed. In this paper, we intr... View full abstract»

    Searching is a necessary tool for managing and navigating the massive amounts of data available in today's information age. While new searching methods have become increasingly popular and reliable in recent years, such as image-based searching, these methods may be more limited than text-based means in that they do not allow generic user input. Sketch-based searching is a method that allows users... View full abstract»

    Today, modeling and subsequent digital model representations are essential constituents in collaborative endeavors on organizational change. Once created, models need to be digitized for shared stakeholder understanding and further processing. Whenever paper serves as carrier medium, it is likely to disrupt further processing, elicitation, and modeling. While digital environments support transform... View full abstract»

  • Synthetic Word Gesture Generation for Stroke-Based Virtual Keyboards

    Gesture typing is a stroke-based text input method for mobile devices. Instead of tapping, the user enters a word by gesturing through all its letters on a virtual keyboard with a single continuous stroke. Even though gesture typing is a widely available text entry method for mobile devices, very little is known about the underlying movement dynamics. The present work fills this gap in the literat...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (852 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Developmental dysgraphia, being observed among 10-30% of school-aged children, is a disturbance or difficulty in the production of written language that has to do with the mechanics of writing. The objective of this study is to propose a method that can be used for automated diagnosis of this disorder, as well as for estimation of difficulty level as determined by the handwriting proficiency scree...

  • The Influence of the Spatio-Temporal Terzi Treatment on the Kinematics of Cursive Writing of Dysgraphic Subjects

    Many different treatment approaches have been applied for handwriting remediation in school-aged children. The effects of these treatments are usually evaluated by using ad-hoc checklists as well as some standard test protocols like Movement ABC tests, Visual-Motor Integration (V.M.I.) tests, etc. Recently, digitizing tablets have allowed the study of kinematic characteristics of handwriting and a...

  • Combining Speech and Handwriting Modalities for Mathematical Expression Recognition

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):259 - 272
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1314 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we open new perspectives for mathematical expression recognition by introducing an original bimodal system. Since handwritten mathematical expression recognition is a very challenging task prone to many ambiguities, we use speech as an additional modality to circumvent limitations that are inherent to the written form. A use case scenario corresponds to lectures given in classrooms ... View full abstract»

    The detection of negative emotions through daily activities such as writing and drawing is useful for promoting wellbeing. The spread of human-machine interfaces such as tablets makes the collection of handwriting and drawing samples easier. In this context, we present a first publicly available database which relates emotional states to handwriting and drawing, that we call EMOTHAW (EMOTion recog... View full abstract»

    Writer identification is an important topic for pattern recognition and artificial intelligence. Traditional methods rely heavily on sophisticated hand-crafted features to represent the characteristics of different writers. In this paper, we propose an end-to-end framework for online text-independent writer identification by using a recurrent neural network (RNN). Specifically, the handwriting dat...

    Diagnosis of a specific learning disability such as dysgraphia impacts children's academic progress and well-being. Dysgraphia is diagnosed by clinicians based on children's written product and educational staff's impressions. This process is time consuming and subjective. Consequently, many children with mild dysgraphia remain undiagnosed, especially those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds. In... View full abstract»

  • Handwriting Movement Sonification: Why and How?

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (162 KB) | HTML iconHTML Multimedia Media

    Sonifying handwriting, i.e., transforming some characteristics of handwriting movement into sounds, aims to improve handwriting perception, evaluation, and control. The educative or clinical interest is to make hidden variables of handwriting, which are not accessible through a visual inspection of the trace, perceptible and useful for novice or poor writers. From a theoretical point of view, hand... View full abstract»
