Abstract:

The report describes an investigation of the effects of changes in a number of design characteristics and other variables on operation with keysets used to record information in binary notation from stimulus displays that contain a maximum of five bits of information per stimulus. Principal result was a demonstration of superiority in transmission and error rates of five-key pattern entry over two-key sequential entry. Other variables tested were less significant. Author
