Jump to: navigation,

A graphical keyboard that can be used by people with physical disabilties (it can also help them to use other X11 applications that require keyboard input) and/or people who just prefer to type things without a keyboard. The user presses keys on an onscreen keyboard that will either be entered into a simple text editor that GTKeyboard provides, or into an app that the user specifies by clicking on the window. I/O can currently be redirected to a file, and short cuts for frequent actions are put into the menus. The program also contains extensive shortcuts to speed up editing: both regular editing shortcuts and web-authoring/programming shortcuts that speed up data entry.
