The GNOME On-screen Keyboard (GOK) includes an alphanumeric keyboard and a keyboard for launching applications. Users specify keyboards and access methods in XML, which lets them modify existings methods and create new ones. Users can set key width, height, and spacing as well as visual and auditory feedback on highlighting and selection. GOK also dynamically creates keyboards to adapt to a specific situation by redisplaying user interface components of running applications directly within GOK as keyboards. The user then has efficient access to elements of the user interface and does not need to navigate the interface indirectly though keyboard accelerators. GOK also supports the redisplay of application menus and toolbars, and includes a window activator keyboard that lists the current windows and lets users switch between them.
