  "description": "<p>Tihs dataset contains motion capture, keylog, eye tracking, and video data of 30 participants, transcribing regular sentences. It is part of the following publication:</p>\n\n<p>Anna Maria Feit, Daryl Weir, Antti Oulasvirta. 2016.How We Type: Movement Strategies and Performance in Everyday Typing.In Proceedings of the 2016 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI &#39;16). ACM, New York, NY, USA, 4262-4273</p>\n\n<p>The paper revisits the present understanding of typing, which originates mostly from studies of trained typists using the tenfinger touch typing system. Our goal was&nbsp;to characterise the majority of present-day users who are untrained and employ diverse, self-taught techniques. In a transcription task, we compared self-taught typists and those that took a touch typing course. We reported several differences in performance, gaze deployment and movement strategies. The most surprising finding was&nbsp;that self-taught typists can achieve performance levels comparable with touch typists, even when using fewer fingers. Motion capture data exposed&nbsp;3 predictors of high performance: 1) unambiguous mapping (a letter is consistently pressed by the same finger), 2) active preparation of upcoming keystrokes, and 3) minimal global hand motion.&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>The dataset is free for non-commercial use. Please cite the above work.&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>Note that participants wrote in either Finnish or English.&nbsp;</p>",
