VirtualKeyboard 3.5 supports Spaces, zoom

VirtualKeyboard 3.5

Corallo Software has updated VirtualKeyboard to version 3.5, adding numerous upgrades, including Spaces compatibility, a Universal Access zoom button and support for non-Roman alphabets such as Cyrillic. The software's main aim is to provide a point-and-click keyboard interface for users with disabilities; it can also be used as a teaching tool, however, and for kiosks. With VirtualKeyboard running, mouse-clicking on keys will send the keystroke to the active application. It handles Shift, Command and other modifier keys as well.

Users can choose from four different-sized keyboards, set to either US or International layouts, and can adjust transparency levels up to 90 percent. A labels feature allows users to create frequently used text, like letterhead or addresses, and access them instantly from a pull-down menu. VirtualKeyboard costs $20, and requires Mac OS X 10.3 or higher on PowerPC Macs, and Mac OS X 10.4 or higher on Intel systems.

    Good for VNC as well

    This utility is also good if you access
    your mac remotely through VNC, especially from
    non-Mac systems. Now you have an option key
    if you need it!

    Apple should buy this from Corallo and
    include it in the OS, like Microsoft does
    with their on-screen-keyboard in Windows.
