    Any Virtual Keyboards? Free?

    I'm looking for an on screen keyboard for the Mac that is free. Anyone have a link? Will use with my Lilliput 7" Touch Screen.

    Thanks,

    It's not free, but well worth taking a look at. It even has a free trial. Kind of pricey though.

    You could always use the keyboard viewer built into OS X:
    System Preferences>International>Input Menu - turn on
    Then access from menu bar. You would have to use a stylus probably to use if efficiently, but free.

    Here's one that's relatively inexpensive - $12.

    It has a few different layouts (small, standard, and extended) that can be resized. There are also a few preferences to control its functionality.

    You can try it out for free for 14 days.

    Check it out...

    In fact you can build your own! Using Inteface Builder and ProjectBuilder, I managed to code a little proof of concept last year, complete with preliminary voice support. Unfortunately I'm still using 10.2 so I had to rely on an external app to output the key to the system (Ex: salling clicker, or other scripting addition), but I believe with 10.3 you can do it more easily, thanks to GUI Scripting.

    Of course I can't try it but the code would look like

    Code:
    tell application "System Events"
     tell process X
      keystroke "I" using command down
      -- you can use modifier keys, too!
     end tell
    end tell
    Otherwise, TouchStroke is wonderful, but at 95$, I prefer to use a less featured product.

    Good luck!
    Unfortunately just dreaming about it.. :P
