Keystroke and Pointing time estimation for touchscreen-based mobile devices: case study children with autism
Today, children with autism show great interest and ease in the use of technology such as tablets and smartphones. There is a lot of research that has been done and is focused on helping users with this type of disorder. But the challenge is the creation of applications that adapt to their physical, cognitive and motor skills of this type of users. This article focuses on identifying the distance of drag that users with autism can perform with less complexity, as well as identifying the time that the user with autism needs to complete the task. The results show that the greater the drag distance, the more complicated this type of user will be. With this result you can conclude that when you develop mobile applications to support the teaching of this type of users should be considered a smaller drag size and an image size greater than 63 pixels.
