unistroke text input

pen-based input of alphanumeric characters based on an alphabet of gestures that can all be written with a single pen stroke. For instance, uppercase H usually requires at least 3 strokes (two vertical bars and a crossbar), while lowercase h can be easily written with 1 continuous stroke. A unistroke alphabet simplifies the automatic recognition of letters and can speed up writing (with practice).
