US Patent #8,045,803
Ciphryx is a simple method to efficiently get text onto a tablet
or small computer using a minimum of screen space while
eliminating the character searching and constant
eye-darting required by the virtual keyboard.
This system may interest tablet users who might either like to try or just observe a new approach to handwriting and text input. It is a powerful “stationary” writing method that is an evolutionary step above cursive, which is enabled by computer technology. Very few will attempt it for most are tightly wrapped in old habits and are not apt to consider a transcendent change, no matter how useful or quickly one can adapt to it.
But, in case there is a small group of individuals out there in the world who would like to try and step into a more versatile and interesting system that is not pushed by a mainstream, profit-oriented company, it is available to download without charge. (just request it via email… you will be directed to a download URL) Ciphryx is simple, compact, fast and easy to write, much less stressful on the eyes than a virtual keyboard and still makes sense to any writer of the English language.
Be aware that one may watch the videos below over and over again, but it will be very little help in understanding Ciphryx, which bypasses the visual ques for the most part and enters into the territory of motion perception or “feel”. You need to use your fingers instead of your eyes to “get” it. Only then will you begin to comprehend its connection with the English letter, number, character and punctuation system.
(Ciphryx can be modified to fit in other non-English European characters.)
– A NEW TEXT INPUT TOOL FOR THE 21ST CENTURY –
Ciphryx is not a grunt text input method like
Graffiti, that was created merely to get text onto
a handheld device. Ciphryx is the “post-paper”
writing system that is the digital fit for the
computer age. It takes advantage of computer leverage
in order to make writing more compact, speed
it up, and neaten it using clear text output. It is not
designed like paper writing, which was intended to be
eye readable. Ciphryx, again, is directed toward speed, accuracy, and the maximization of software readability.
Ciphryx performance (Currenfty Windows Only) is tablet/cpu dependent
Ciphryx is a true intermediary writing
language. It is simple, mathematical,
in nature, similar to musical notes,
comprehensive in its stroke structure and
substantially quicker than longhand. It
has been carefully organized to maintain
the feel of English and is far more compact
and versatile than either standard hand-
writing or the screen blocking virtual keyboard.
– OBSERVE IT IN ACTION –
(SCREEN RECORDINGS #1 AND #2)
(pardon the sloppiness and illegibility, but if the software can
read these scribbles (they are really just traced motions), who cares?)
In this similar screen recording below, the ink has been turned off.
The visual ball has been activated so you can follow the motions.
Ciphryx can be like dancing. You don’t have to watch your feet,
so why should you have to watch your fingers?
More recordings and videos below.
Ciphryx text is transferable into any word processor
or text box by either a one step… tap/inject or a
two step… select/copy and tap/paste feature.
Ciphryx, as intimated above, is a system of character
perception, rather than outward appearance. It allows
“clipped” input within a small area and offers the
capability to input text without looking or to
completely turn off the “ink” if one wishes.
The faster it is written, the more English
sense it makes. The extraneous parts of
letters are eliminated. Ciphryx goes straight
to a character’s essence, which the mind
and hand readily pick up… but not ones’ eyes.
Just watching it will not be much aid to its
understanding. One has to sit down and try it.
Only then, will it be “gotten”.
– Ciphryx Software Intro (GUI Demo) –
(A Windows based java program)
A full screen recording on an 8″ tablet.
the [Info] button is tapped on the GUI in the expanded mode.

(Ciphryx contains all virtual keyboard characters)
With the aid of computer interpretation,
Ciphryx Stationary Writing gets text input
accomplished neatly, compactly and quicker
than old-fashioned, paper style writing. The GUI
is far smaller and more maneuverable than the
virtual keyboard and increases the versatility
of the otherwise limited tablet beyond
that of the “modern” laptop.

– Some Key Ciphryx Features –
Sounds to confirm actions, cap prior character,
number mode, handwriting calculator, select
all and copy to paste, set trigger text to inject,
note taking input mode, search engine mode,
character to voice mode, repeat character mode,
tap to erase, ink off and GUI fade mode
The Ciphryx recognition writing system was created for several very good reasons. I, the developer, needed a much simplified, but still English-feeling input system that would allow fast, neat notes to be taken within a very small space, and an easy to navigate method for programming software on a smaller than laptop computer (today’s tablet). I disliked having to wade through the slow, oddball and unnecessary contortions required by current forms of text input.
I set out to discover a more practical piece of software that would offer a better method to get extended tablet work done and not feel burned out after about 30 seconds of text input time. I thought it would take about 15 days to work the problem out. It actually took 15 years. During this period, tablets were invented and have since been improved upon. The higher end your tablet / cpu set up, the better Ciphryx will perform.
Ciphryx is a cross between the keyboard concept and handwriting recognition. Each stroke, when activated by a modifier stroke (like the shift key for caps and punctuation e.i.), has an alternate symbol associated with it. This minimizes the number of overall system strokes, which heightens recognition potential by allowing increased simplicity and the widening of the “distance” (or uniqueness) between each stroke shape (definitiveness). The symbol system is not only organized to fit English, but also follows a hierarchy principle where the most used strokes are the most simple or easiest to write. This feature maximizes writing efficiency.
I use the Ciphryx system exclusively, because it IS better than the alternatives. I know handwriting. I’ve studied it for a very long time. I know what works and what doesn’t. I know what one can quickly adjust too and what one can’t. I know the inadequacies of the tablet and how to best overcome the problems. I program, write emails, edit this web page, casually write down my thoughts and, of course, input web search terms on a daily basis with Ciphryx . It is not like learning a new language… It is more like getting used to a new accent. The software is here for those who would like to try a change that will make a big difference in how they view their tablet and its future utility. This little program turns the elephant in the room into a mouse. You do not have to take my word for it. You can test it out yourself if you just ask.

“Apps” using today’s cpu’s still offer too slow recognition
Java avoids “slow hooking’ into the OS
It’s fast and adjustable to many (OS) platforms.
(Java Runtime Engine [JRE-8] Provided)
Std (1280×800) and HiRes (1920×1200)
(2) Versions Available
Ciphryx strokes can be viewed as simple pieces of a virtual puzzle that fit tightly against one another. This boundary based concept is patented and the secret to quick input speed with high recognition. The Ciphryx recognition program defines each stroke’s boundaries precisely through angles and direction change detection which gives a writer confidence that the error rate will be low and similar to that of a keyboard.
It does not take long to get acquainted with this new text input method and there is no time frame required to become a Ciphryx master. One can take a month or a year. The more it is used, the faster one will be able to write and the fewer errors will be made. This particular version is specifically designed for English writers.
You’ll find it easier to write than print or cursive and may be surprised. Your error rate upon mastery, can be extremely low. The input speed is high and its user interface does not obscure a large portion of the screen as other forms of tablet text input. And again, its feel comes so close to familiar English that you will find it quite remarkable. There will be some text input situations in which only the Ciphryx system can do an adequate job.
