Ticker is a novel probabilistic stereophonic single-switch text entry method for visually-impaired users with motor disabilities who rely on single-switch scanning systems to communicate. Such scanning systems are sensitive to a variety of noise sources, which are inevitably introduced in practical use of single-switch systems. Ticker uses a novel interaction model based on stereophonic sound coupled with statistical models for robust inference of the users intended text in the presence of noise. As a consequence of its design, Ticker is resilient to noise and therefore a practical solution for single-switch scanning systems. Tickers performance is validated using a combination of simulations and empirical user studies.
