News nybble: Build your own virtual keyboard

      Comments Off on News nybble: Build your own virtual keyboard

Kevin Wells has released a new version of VKeyboard, his application that presents the user with an on-screen ‘virtual’ keyboard, driven by the mouse. A click on a given key causes the relevant character to be inserted in the keyboard buffer, and thus sent to whichever running application has the cursor, just as if the equivalent key had been pressed on a physical keyboard.

The update adds the ability to create and edit new keyboards, with the number allowed in theory limited only by the number of files that can be stored in a directory on the version of RISC OS in use.
