Anumaan


Anumaan is a perspective based, on-screen predictive text entry system. It is an extension of an Input Method (IM) mechanism (on GNOME desktop) in the sense that it extends its (IM) notion by including the power of text prediction. It has support for UTF-8 unicode encoding.

Anumaan allows its user to train it and personalize his writing style into different named domains. Hence it adapts to his writing style in some sense. The current version will not have live mode adaptation, but still a user can train a domain as many times you like.

Anumaan is designed for a (text) sequence prediction based on a certain context. The context can either be a partial word context or a partial sentence context. Through prediction of a certain (text) sequence, the system helps augmenting the rate of text comprehension and typing. Here, predictions are achieved from multiple perspectives. The existence of multi-dimensional perspectives gives user valuable choices. Some of these perspectives are:

1. Perspective of a domain
2. Features of language
3. Writing style of an individual

Anumaan is designed for people who suffer from different kinds of motor disability by allowing it to be customized for different kinds of input devices (e.g. keyboard, mouse, joystick or any other pointing device especially built for people suffering from motor disability). In other words it can be very easily customized to cater to different hand movement capabilities. The current version is only for mouse and keyboard based interactions. But we can easily customize it for different hardware input device requirements.

The current version includes Anumaan-standalone-0.2 with improved GUI and this version got "100% FREE" Softpedia award.
