An overlapped handwriting input method, which includes: moving a touch unit on a touch screen, recording and displaying the track of a stroke on a handwriting area of the screen; determining whether the stroke currently being written and all previously input strokes having a color a belong to the same character; if yes, keeping the current stroke color unchanged; otherwise, determining whether an inactive visual layer character is present on the screen; if yes, clearing an image of the inactive character and related stroke information; otherwise, defining as the inactive character all strokes having the color a, excluding the current stroke; submitting data of the current inactive character to a recognition engine, and outputting a recognition result. Thus, the interface friendliness for users to continuously input handwriting according to their natural writing practice is ensured, and multiple handwritten characters can be written continuously without pause, thereby improving handwriting input efficiency..

Space prediction for text input


An example method includes displaying, at a presence-sensitive device, a virtual keyboard, receiving an indication of input entered at a presence-sensitive device indicating a plurality of characters, determining a sequence of at least three character strings in the plurality such that the sequence does not include any space characters, modifying the characters by inserting at least two space characters to demarcate the at least three character strings, and determining at least two suggested character strings based on first, second, and third character strings of the sequence. The method further includes outputting, for display at the presence-sensitive device and at a text-suggestion area of the gui, the at least two suggested character strings, receiving a selection that indicates a selected character string of the at least two suggested character strings, and outputting, for display at the presence-sensitive device and at the text-entry area of the gui, the selected character string..
