Abstract

With touch screen based keyboards, one can mistype a key because of the close proximity of other keys on the on-screen keyboard. Say somebody mistyped because of the said reason did a backspace and typed the letter again. In this case to avoid repeated mistyping, the keypad program may choose (or give preference over the previously mis-typed letter) the adjacent letter in case there is ambiguity about which letter was typed second time around.
