Abstract [en]

In this report, a number of tasks are performed by a group participating in the study. Every task is performed twice, with different input modalities used each time. The purpose of the study is to find out if there are certain tasks where stylus input is faster than mouse input or vice versa. Results of the study show that stylus is a faster input modality than mouse when performing the tasks given within this study. Moving icons by dragging them from one side of the screen to the other produced the biggest differences, and combined dragging and clicking, which was the last task, produced smaller differences. In general, stylus was faster throughout all tasks, although there were a few subjects who performed better with the mouse on one or more tasks. Most subjects found the stylus to be more fun to use and all found it faster, even the few who was actually faster with the mouse.
