KeyStrokes 4 for Mac OS X is a fully-functional advanced virtual on-screen keyboard that allows you to type with a mouse, trackball, head pointer or other mouse emulator to type characters into any standard Macintosh application.
KeyStrokes provides advanced multilingual word prediction allowing a total effort reduction of up to 70%. Thanks to its revolutionary PolyPredix(TM) word prediction engine it can do word completion, next word prediction and even multi-word prediction in any Roman language as well as many other languages.
For those who can position the pointer, but not click the mouse buttons, the integrated Dwellix system-wide dwell-based utility allows mouse button clicks to be entered by simply holding the cursor motionless for a programmable period of time. You can even type without clicking!
KeyStrokes provides SmartTransparency technology to provide you with an optimum use of your screen real-estate and make sure the virtual keyboard never gets in your way.
Word prediction also works for the hardware keyboard to accommodate one finger typists and with SwitchXS 2.1 to give switch users access to the same great word prediction.
KeyStrokes 4 includes LayoutKitchen, which allows users to design their own virtual keyboards. Such virtual keyboards can be used not only for typing, but also to launch applications, speak, run AppleScripts and much more. This makes KeyStrokes the hub that gives users who cannot use a physical keyboard or who prefer a graphic tablet or touch screen full access to their computer. Registered KeyStrokes 3 users can use the new version, but to use LayoutKitchen and design their own keyboards an upgrade to a KeyStrokes 4 activation code is required. An upgrade from KeyStrokes 3 to KeyStrokes 4 (including LayoutKitchen) costs 129 USD. This upgrade is free for anyone who purchased KeyStrokes 3 in 2007 or 2008. For more info contact AssistiveWare.
