A Phrase Set for Bengali/Bangla Text Entry Evaluations Based on Actual Text Messages

Ahmed Sabbir Arif & Sarah Fardeen

Last update:

Abstract — User studies evaluating text entry techniques usually require participants to transcribe phrases. Yet at present, there is no dataset available for Bengali text entry research that includes phrases entered on mobile devices. This forces researchers to collect phrases from various sources, compromising the external validity of the work. In this paper, we present a set of Bengali phrases composed by real users on actual mobile devices. Through an analysis of the dataset, we show that it contains phrases with varying lengths, symbols, and numbers.
