We collect a first-of-its kind keystroke database in two phases. Phase 1 includes 56 subjects typing multiple same day, fixed and free text, sessions. It includes the acoustics and video information. Phase 2 includes 30 subjects typing mutliple free text sessions on different days across months. It includes the video information as well as keystroke timing information for use with conventional keystroke dynamics.

This dataset is released in two different forms. Acoustics: 45 subjects from phase 1. Visual: Full dataset. To obtain a copy of this dataset, please specify which portion you want access to and email Joseph Roth at rothjos1[at]msu[dot]edu with the subject: "MSU Typing Behavior Database download".

This dataset is provided for non-commercial use. Any publications arising from the use of this database, including but not limited to academic journal and conference publications, technical reports and manuals, must cite the corresponding work for use of Acoustic or Visual.
