Instead of an on-screen keyboard we have an on screen word tree. By
tapping on a word, it prints the word into the screen, and the screen
word-select move to the next position.
If there is no good choices, you
can kick up a normal keypad screen
and enter the word. It will remember your choice.
If lucky, the word tree will have a branch which across each node is the
sentence you want. Press ahead of the branch, and you automatically
have just entered a chain of words.
Same idea, but with letters instead of words. Works pretty well. [Spacecoyote, Dec 23 2010]
||The tree should be a 3D freestanding structure, with a tiny one-word OLED on each leaf.
||From the title, I thought this would be trees with keyboards - the human's version of animals pissing on a tree to mark their territory.
||I've seen (probably thanks to a link from here) a text input
program for people with limited mobility. It basically lets
them navigate through a tree, with branches weighted (ie,
more or less distant) depending on the likelihood of the next
||Yup that's what it was inspired from, that version was actually "letter" to "letters"
||Mine just skip the whole thing and go straight to words, as its faster...
||And also we don't want to make people feel handicapped.
||Many software keyboards, including my favorite (SwiftKey),
do effectively this, just displaying suggestions by word
instead of whole sentences at once. SwiftKey does
sometimes suggest a pair of words, though.
