On-Screen Keyboard In Windows XP!
An on-screen keyboard is built into Windows XP. It is handy if you have mobility
impairments, or if your keyboard goes down.
First, make a shortcut icon on your desktop for the onscreen keyboard.
Right-click the desktop background, point to New, and then click Shortcut. Type
OSK and click Next. Type a name for this shortcut (Osk or Onscreen Keyboard) and
then click Finish.
In the window for On-Screen Keyboard, click Settings, then Typing Mode. There
are three modes you can use to type data. The default is Click to select; click
on screen keys to type. Try Hover to select where you use a mouse or joystick to
point to a key, which is then typed. There is a scanning mode called Joystick or
key to select; you press a hot key or use a switch-input device to type
Click Keyboard on the Menu bar to select from various types. Open Notepad or
Wordpad and experiment with the XP onscreen keyboard.
