TouchStrokes provides a fully-functional on-screen virtual keyboard that works by drawing a keyboard image on the display and allows you to type characters into any normal application using a mouse, touch screen, graphic tablet, trackball, head pointer or other mouse emulator. It runs natively on Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X without the need for any special extensions. It works seamlessly with all standard Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X applications allowing you to type virtually anywhere a hardware keyboard can be used. TouchStrokes automatically adjusts to US and international keyboard layouts and has multiple resizable keyboard models. It handles command-key combinations, dead-keys, and modifier key - click combinations. It offers a quick access toolbar and has many customizable settings, including a configurable kiosk mode that permits the disabling of certain keys, key combinations and other functionality specifically for use in touch screen kiosks.

TouchStrokes is ideal if you work with a touch screen or electronic white board. Also for artists working with large graphic tablets or server managers that want to eliminate the clutter of having multiple physical keyboards on a desk it provides a great solution. People with disabilities should also check out our KeyStrokes virtual keyboard, which offers special accessibility features.

TouchStrokes requires Mac OS 9 or higher or Mac OS X 10.1.3 or higher. The minimal required screen resolution is 800 x 600 pixels.

Version 1.5.6 offers an improved touch screen experience. Modifier keys (such as shift and option) are now immediately activated even before the mouse or finger is released. It also fixes a file permission issue that prevented operation from another account than the one the software was installed from.
