  2. 2. © 2015 Nuance Communications, Inc. All rights reserved. 2 The evolution of modern typing technology has radically shifted the way we collect and store information. Innovations have led to quicker, easier, less costly, and more consistent ways to input and manage this data that all of society so readily depends on.
  3. 3. © 2015 Nuance Communications, Inc. All rights reserved. 3 Reverend Rasmus Malling-Hansen invented what is today known as the Hansen Writing Ball, a semi-spherical device that launched decades of future keyboard innovations. First minted in 1865, this year marks the 150th anniversary of the Hansen Writing Ball. The Hansen Writing Ball 1865 http://www.malling-hansen.org/the-writing-ball.html
  4. 4. © 2015 Nuance Communications, Inc. All rights reserved. 4 The introduction of the Hansen Writing Ball spurred a series of innovations – some prototypes that didn’t make it to market, others that were quick to be commercialized, ultimately permeating the office and home environments.
  5. 5. © 2015 Nuance Communications, Inc.

  7. 7. © 2015 Nuance Communications, Inc. All rights reserved. 7 IBM popularized the so-called “modern” typewriter (or what most of us think of when we think “typewriter”) – an electronic, portable, and proportionally letter-spaced version of earlier inventions. Iterations of this machine were produced in a variety of color schemes and promoted through extensive print ads that targeted the growing work force of female secretaries and their bosses.

  10. 10. © 2015 Nuance Communications, Inc. All rights reserved. 10 Dragon NaturallySpeaking was the first continuous speech dictation software available. Today, Dragon is the world’s best-selling speech recognition software, and is a proven productivity solution for a wide range of professional markets. Creating and editing documents, completing forms, writing and sending emails – Dragon allows all of these tasks to be completed by voice, without the need for a mouse or keyboard. Voice recognition software 1997
  11. 11. © 2015 Nuance Communications, Inc.

The duo’s innovation was a result of them developing products for people with disabilities, including the creation of eye- tracking devices that allowed for text input via eye movements.

As mobile devices continue to evolve in the age of the Internet of Things, touch has become a pivotal modality for user interface design. The mobile touchscreen https://www-03.ibm.com/ibm/history/exhibits/modelb/modelb_milestone.html 2007
  13. 13. © 2015 Nuance Communications, Inc. All rights reserved. 13 Following the birth of the touchscreen, Cliff Kushler and Randy Marsden created Swype, a predictive continuous trace input technology that is on more than one billion devices worldwide today. Trace input: Swype Swype.com 2008
