Abstract

A method which allows continuous and automatic positional adjustment of a touch screen keyboard is described. Adjustment is controlled through analysis of the coordinates associated with finger hits upon keys on the screen relative to the actual center of the keys on the virtual keyboard. As the location of finger hits relative to the center of keys drifts, the position of the virtual keyboard is moved to compensate.
