Is there any research that compares the User Experience of using the mentioned Input Devices ? Thanks

Edit: Basically for my dissertation i'm planning on creating a usable interface for a voting machine. I'd like to use a touchscreen and I need some kind of academic research that I could use in my literature review to back-up my choice of input device. If you'd like me to specify more feel free to let me know.

    I think the question could be usefully rephrased around 'design guidelines for touch / non touch interfaces'

  • The voting machine being the hardware? I find that often the selection of the input method is mostly related to what hardware the application/ui you're designing is being deployed on. Commented Feb 23, 2015 at 13:10

Here's an older article (2007) on Mouse vs. Direct-Touch for tabletop displays. Back in university I saw a number of papers that compared the speed and accuracy of different input methods in completing certain tasks. I suspect that there have been more modern papers that have revisited these experiments.
