Tools for Text Entry Evaluators

In developing EdgeWrite, tools were necessary for performing rigorous text entry evaluations with human subjects. We wrote TextTest for conducting text entry experiments and logging data. We wrote StreamAnalyzer for parsing and analyzing that data, and making it easy to paste into Microsoft Excel or a statistics package like SAS JMP or IBM SPSS.

Both TextTest and StreamAnalyzer have since been incorporated into the latest version of TextTest. TextTest has also been given its own project page.
