7.5. Dasher

Dasher is an information-efficient text-entry interface, driven by natural continuous pointing gestures. Dasher is not really a "keyboard" but instead uses a zooming interface and a predictive language model with word completion. Dasher makes data entry easy by people utilizing a joystick, touchscreen, trackball, or mouse for one-handed operations. It can also be utilized by people using no-hand tools such as a head-mouse or an eye-tracker. Additional information on Dasher can be found at

7.5.1. Installing Dasher
