KeyPoint Technologies, DIOTEK Enter Software-Licensing Agreement for Distribution of Adaptxt® Smart Keyboard Technology
For OEMs, smart keyboard application expands capabilities and features among wide array of DIOTEK mobile phones and tablet solutions
SAN JOSE, Calif. — Feb. 20, 2013 — KeyPoint Technologies today announced a software-licensing agreement with DIOTEK Co., Ltd., a leading provider of mobile software solutions, for distribution KeyPoint’s distinctive Adaptxt® smart keyboard technology to makers of mobile devices worldwide.
DIOTEK, based in Seoul, South Korea, provides mobile-convergence applications such as handwriting-recognition, dictionaries, optical character recognition (OCR), voice-recognition and other value-added software solutions to more than 70 major manufacturers of mobile devices, including Samsung, LG, HTC, Sony-Ericsson, Motorola, Fujitsu and Hewlett-Packard.
Under the multi-year agreement, DIOTEK will integrate KeyPoint’s Adaptxt smart keyboard technology into a range of products sold to OEMs and end users, including smartphones, tablets, TVs and autos.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to partner with DIOTEK,” said KeyPoint CEO Sumit Goswami. “The agreement means that DIOTEK’s diverse set of solutions will be expanded to include Adaptxt’s artificial intelligence that quickly masters the highly personalized nuances of how each user writes using their smartphone keyboard.”
DIOTEK CEO Dr. Jeong-In Doh said: “Adding Adaptxt technology to the wide range of capabilities we already offer is a real coup for DIOTEK. We believe that having the Adaptxt smart keyboard in the array of solutions we offer OEMs gives us an unsurpassed portfolio of mobile technology capabilities.”
Adaptxt uses artificial linguistic intelligence to identify the unique words and phrases that each person uses and then adds them to a personalized custom dictionary. Adaptxt is fundamentally different from – and superior to other traditional predictive solutions, which simply hunt for a match in a dictionary based on a predetermined lexicon, then automatically changes what the user types, forcing them to go back and manually correct the platform’s mistake.
Other major features of Adaptxt include:
· Automatic text replacement lets users create one-touch shortcuts for phrases they frequently use.
· Language-specific keyboard layouts, such as QWERTY, QWERTZ, QZERTY, AZERTY, and a 12-key phone-style keypad.
· A split keyboard in the tablet version.
· Quickly switching between languages by dragging the space key left or right.
· Posting messages on Facebook and Twitter with a single tap directly from Adaptxt, eliminating the step of launching those apps to share an update.
· The ability to use messages and social network posts to learn frequently used words.
· A “private mode” that suspends learning to keep words from being added to personal dictionaries.
· The ability to add and delete words from personal dictionaries quickly and conveniently.
