Four years ago, on Engelbart’s 81st birthday, I asked Doug, with all of your ideas still to implement, what small piece would you like to see brought to the attention of the public in the next five years. He answered,
“The Chorded Keyset”
So four years latter we have launched the iPhone app TipTapSpeech.
It took a team of people working with Engelbart. Check out this video of Eric Matsuno showing Doug Engelbart, his long time secretary, Mary Coppernoll, Doug’s good friend and co-engineer Bill English and Doug’s former secretary Roberta Engish the early prototype of TipTapSpeech.
