ABSTRACT
In mobile phone soft keyboard layout, some Myanmar characters are behind the keyboard layout scene and it is needed to switch with some control key. For mobile phone text entry system, optimizing the fit between technology and the user is critical for realizing the potential benefits of assistive technology. It is a necessarytask to try out the effective key layout design that can enhance the text entry speed. Moreover, there is also weak in analyzing of key layout design for Myanmar Language. The aim of this paper is to develop effective Myanmar soft keyboard layout on mobile touch phone to enhance text entry performance by analyzing the entire possible candidate layout according to their probability statistics. The text entry speeds of currently used Myanmar soft keyboards are also analyzed. The experiment shows that the proposed analytic soft keyboard improves typing performance than conventional soft keyboard on touch screen handheld devices.
