Shorthand-Aided Rapid Keyboarding

Shorthand-Aided Rapid Keyboarding is an advanced pen-based text input method for mobile devices. It combines novel pattern recognition technology with a stylus keyboard.

Fluid Sync

Fluid Sync is a Java library for application developers who want to add multi-user collaboration or multi-device capabilities to their application. Applications become "fluid" in the sense that a running application can be spread to a new device. A new instance is created with the exact same application state. Initially, it remains coupled to the first instance: User changes in one become immediately visible in the other.

During synthesis, very small segments of recorded human speech are concatenated together to produce the synthesized speech -- and it's available online for you to try.
