Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The usability of Web browsing was compared among four operation (input) methods (indirect cursor movement by a mouse, direct cursor movement by a Wii remote controller, focus movement by a TV remote controller, and hand-written character recognition by an iPod touch system). The task completion time of a mouse was the shortest of four operation methods, which is indicative of the effectiveness of a mouse under such environment.
