With the evolvingfunctionality in television-based Tvbasedinformation andentertainment appliances, there is an increased need to enableusers input text through remote control devices. We present a noveltext input method, The Numpad Typer TNT, for interactive TV,multimediahome terminals or other similar applications. Embodied ina TV remote control and guided by a visual map on the Tvscreen, TNTwas designed for consistent spatial Stimuli-Response S-Rcompatibility and consistency of use. Fiveusers tested TNT in tensessions of 45-minutes. This initial investigation showed thatusers on average could type 9.3 and 17.7 correct words per minutewith TNT doing the slowest and the fastest session respectively.The study also showed that the users found the TNT method easy tograsp and fun to use. Subjectively the participants felttheymastered the method rather quickly in comparison to theiractual speed improvement.
