Kevin Wells has updated his virtual keyboard application VKeyboard to accept multiple keyboards.

The application presents a keyboard display on screen, and the action of clicking on any of the displayed keys will either result in the represented character being inserted wherever the cursor is or, for special keys – such as page up/down, tab, etc – the relevant action is carried out.

With v1.02, users can now add additional keyboards.

Once a keyboard is defined, it can be selected by clicking Menu over the application when running.
