Outside of speaking and walking and reading, one of the best skills I have is the ability to type. Thanks to a few decades of practice I can type rather quickly, efficiently, and with few errors.
Not every Mac user has the same luxury. While the Mac’s keyboard is good, whether wired or Bluetooth, the fact is that not everyone can use a keyboard.
How can you use a Mac if you have an inability to use the keyboard? Guess what? There’s an app for that.
VirtualKeyboard goes way beyond the anemic built-in Mac onscreen keyboard. It offers point and click typing using a mouse, graphic tablet, trackpad, even a head pointer. That makes it the perfect tool for those who are disabled and struggle with the keyboard built of atoms.
VirtualKeyboard works exactly like your Mac’s real keyboard, except it’s on the screen.
VirtualKeyboard floats above other apps on the Mac’s screen. It handles U.S. and international keyboard layouts, and comes in four resizable keyboard models; from larger to smaller.
The keyboard also handles command-key combos, modifier key-click combos, and auto repeat. There’s a built-in option to make the onscreen keyboard transparent when the mouse pointer is moved off the keyboard.
While VirtualKeyboard can be used to teach typing to children, it’s best used as the entry tool of choice for those with disabilities.
