"Voice" is unobstructed, the public welfare plan is specific? How will Sogou input method rely on its own technical advantage to bring convenience to the disabled group?

First, build a barrier-free input open platform

In recent years, China's Internet penetration rate has climbed year by year. At the end of June 2021, the Chinese Internet penetration rate reached 71.60%, mobile phones, and PC input methods have become our daily life, work, study, and express themselves in the network, and express themselves in the network.

These numbers are still increasing, they are special people, and they also need to input the words to express themselves.

With the start of the "public" unbacard input public welfare plan, Sogou input method will continue to use its own AI technology advantages, existing product coverage, etc., for more AI developers, enterprises, and special people to build an accessible input channel.

Specifically, the "Voice" Accessible Input Public Welfare Plan is initially included in the two aspects, respectively, the research and analysis of group demand, and built an accessible input open platform.

"

So how do Tencent build high quality information for special people?

A multi-set near-infrared light source is provided on the eyeliner, and the eye reflection is transferred to the eyeliner, through the algorithm to obtain the watch coordinate position, allow the computer to identify the position of the eye, and perform instructions.

During the use of ophthammatists, all buttons on the keyboard require eye to operate, and the input method is critical in this link. Sogou input method is equipped with eye-catching keyboard developed by opinion.

First, in order to enhance the user experience, the opinion keyboard designed by the Sogou input method provides the button adsorption function, which can reduce the error rate generated due to false operation when the user selects operation at the gaze button.
