CIPHRYX COMPACT RECOGNITION HANDWRITING

It does not take smarts to write it. A child can quickly pick it up. But it does take some extra brain power to comprehend why a special set of simple strokes which possess a unique configuration will overall, perform better than both Old World letters and virtual keys.

Despite contrary beliefs and the reality of high user inertia toward the acceptance and the learning of a new form of text input, Ciphryx will keep pounding home the fact that small computer text input has been on the wrong track for a very long time. 

Presented below is the more rational approach to text input and writing on compact computers (which includes tablets, smart-phones and watch-sized devices). If you would like to rise above the primitive and reach beyond the lowest common denominator and get some real work accomplished on your smaller computer, master Ciphryx… or learn it just for the sake of being different and experiencing something truly new. Break away from the flock of finger pecking “pigeons” that are  wandering our once safe streets.

A post paper style of writing and text input, designed for the hand and the digitizer… not for direct viewing or for use on paper.

___________________

You do not have to write the whole letter for it to be accurrately recognized or for you to still feel that it has been written to completion. Your mind naturally fills in or disregards the missing parts. You also no longer have to write from left to right.

The question is then: Why are we still wasting our time in the 21st century writing an old fashioned way when an opportunity has arisen that transforms writing into a new text input tool that is quick, neat and very compact?

One of many past foolish assumptions made by otherwise bright people.

_____________________

Notice its absolute freestyle motions.

Note that each motion has a meaning 

And each motion captures a letter’s feel or sensory “essense”.

______________________

Those who cling to sight and cannot let go of that sense for even a second are handicapped and will be incapable of understading Ciphryx. Those who have learned to type without looking will  “get it”. When it is comprehended that eye sight can become an obstacle to understanding, transcendence can occur.

The stroke set comes first. Its arrangement for the target language comes second.

The motions above are not precisely reproduced on screen as written, (current touch screens are notoriously inaccurate) but each stroke captures the basic essence of the intended letter. In other words, both one’s brain and hand are satisfied without arguement, that the target letter has been written close enough to not cause mental confusion. Taking advantage of this  automatic mental quirk is key to Ciphryx working. It provides the means for a non-traumatic and quick learning curve. 

This letter perception phenomenon cannot be seen on screen, however. It must be felt. Lack of the ability to visualize it is the major stumbling block which prevents potential users from taking a stab at Ciphryx. To make use of the phenomenon, one must turn perception away from the outer eye of the primitive man and direct it toward that of the smarter, inner eye that transcends simple vison. Learning Ciphryx facilitates that shift toward inner perception and will expand a users narrow view of his or her mental capabilities. Sounds complicated in it’s description, but it is automatic and requires no thought.

_________________

Ciphryx is like having a single oversized key that does everything. You “write” the “key” stroke representation…. the recognition program outputs the character or engages a command. You do not even need to see the stroke “ink” if you don’t want to. Ciphryx strokes have no position sensitive components. It is therefore possible to just feel them, while making a simple stroke motion, that gives one the subtle impression of writing the correct character. (This is similar to “blind” typing on a full sized keyboard or rapidly writing an illegible signature.) The ink, if used, merely indicates the stroke motion path. Each text or command output occurs within a  fraction of a second upon lifting the stylus or finger.

It cannot be over emphasized that ones mind and hand are pliable and can adapt quite quickly to this system. If target letter compatible, one’s hand will eagerly follow a simpler path. The brain will rapidly solidify each stroke as a pseudo letter alternative and lock it into permancy, allowing the hand to automatically respond.

Learning Ciphryx is an exceptional, new experience. It provides a better understanding of how the mind works and the true primitive nature of current text input systems. Once mastered, one can then step fully into the 21st century with an appropriately modern text input tool.

Ciphryx is a simplified form of “Computer English” that takes the user  as far away from recognition input mistakes as possible, with the greatest speed, ease and compactness. It is a cross between writing and the keyboard concept. It competes directly with the old school, small-computer unfriendly text input concepts of handwriting recognition and the virtual keyboard.

Now on to another Ciphryx demo.

Ciphryx uses the shortest, most widely spaced and smooth, follow-through strokes that exist. They are limited in number and specific. (Much like musical notes.) The majority fit and have been strategically matched with cursive English letters. (If you have not been taught cursive, it is not your fault. It is a poor education system that is geared toward minimalism.) The remaining of the 26 primary Ciphryx strokes are matched with print letters. Each stroke, unlike a letter, has clearly defined boundaries (angles) which define its “territority”. When drawn outside of it’s boundaries, a stroke falls within the  territory of a nearest “neighbor”. The Ciphryx stroke system, therefore, can be described as a matrix of tightly fitting puzzle pieces. Its broad, definitve stroke boundaries, similar to large keyboard keys, clarify and maximize recognition. (Note that the smaller the computer size, the less effective are keys for prolonged input and the more effective is a stroke system.)

Ciphryx is not an invention. It is a discovery.

This recognition writing system is for those who are willing to consider that it is not out of the realm of possibility that in the 21st century the  use of  print and cursive will be highly curtailed and a new more modern alternative will become their replacement. (With the advent of small computers it is no longer necessary to write legible “letters” or from left to right.) Ciphryx is also for those who view the virtual keyboard as problematic and an anachronism. Although it has a tiny learning curve, which would seem to be an advantage, in reality, it is a permanent disadvantage. The VK establishes a text input system that is perpetually cumbersome, tedious and limiting.  It handicaps every user of every skill level and reduces them to a level of inhibited minimalism. Ciphryx frees users from the invisible shackles created by Old World writing and the virtual keyboard.

______

____________________________________

This system may interest tablet (and smartphone) users who might either like to try or just observe a new approach to handwriting and text input. It is a powerful 21st century “stationary” writing method enabled by computer technology that is an evolutionary step above cursive.  Ciphryx is easy to adopt, but few will attempt it, for most  feel that they are either too busy to even set it on their tool bar or too uncomfortable with the idea of a new writing concept, no matter how useful or quickly it can be picked up and mastered. 

“With Ciphryx one will find that they have been wasting time using Old World writing for inline recognition purposes.”

But…  in case there are some individuals who would like to try and step into a more versatile and effective input style, it is available to download and use free of 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, although generally simplified, it will still make sense to any writer of the English language.

“To settle for lower or strive for higher
learning… that is the question.”

Be aware that one may watch the screen recordings and videos below several times, but it will be  little help in understanding Ciphryx, which bypasses 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 quickly pick up the connection with the English letter, number, character and punctuation system. That is why it can be considered a transcendent writing system.

Ciphryx modifications are possible which allow 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. It is the “post-paper” writing system that is a 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 with the use of clear text output. It is NOT designed as was past paper writing, which was intended to be eye legible. Instead, Ciphryx is “impression” legible and directed toward input speed, accuracy, and the maximization of software readability. It is the software which is the vehicle that translates and  organIzes the input motions,  making that “writing” user friendly. 

You may look upon it as a puzzle, a game or whatever but, once you learn it, you will find yourself reaching for IT rather than the virtual keyboard or your standard writing recognition software.

Ciphryx is a modern, 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, visually demanding virtual keyboard.

(SCREEN RECORDINGS #1 AND #2)

pardon the sloppiness and illegibility, but if the software can read these scribbles (they are really just traced motions), input neatness must not be too important for the output result.

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.

… 

Performance (Currenfty Windows Only) is tablet/cpu dependent

Note: Ciphryx could be translated into an Android or Apple OS app but, very few are willing to even try the initial Windows based program to see if it works on their device. It, therefore, makes no sense to expand the software unless there is a demand for it. This system has been floating around, unseen within the “ether” since the beginning of time. l am just the one who expended the effort to search and work it out to completion. I personally use Ciphryx every day and am now quite annoyed when forced to use a virtual keyboard when away from my tablet. That is my preference. Whether anyone else chooses to learn Ciphryx it is up to themselves to decide. (J.S. Nelson – Ciphryx developer)

 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.

 __________

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.

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.

f

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.
