Eye typing is one of the most intensively investigated topics in eye tracking technology. Currently, almost all eye typing systems are developed for English typing. Some preliminary studies have been made on developing eye typing systems for inputting Chinese characters/text. In this paper, a novel eye typing system is proposed for inputting Chinese characters, where a software keyboard is specially designed based on a study of Chinese Pinyin. Experimental results show the efficiency and usability of the proposed system.
