Click-N-Type is an on-screen virtual keyboard designed for anyone with a disability that
prevents him or her from typing on a physical computer keyboard. As long as the person
can control a mouse, trackball or other pointing device, he or she can send keystrokes to
virtually any Windows application or DOS application that can run within a window.
Click-N-Type is a 32 bit application that requires Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP or later.
There are other virtual keyboards around but you'll find Click-N-Type the easiest to use
for getting text into those uncooperative places like browser URL "Address:" fields, Email
"To:" addresses, Email "Subject:" fields, dialog boxes like "Open" and "Save As...", and
many other problematic applications. Try them all. You'll see they all work fine while
typing into Notepad or WordPad, but when you attempt to do some real work, with all but
the expensive ones, you'll get really annoyed really fast. Click-N-Type was designed with
ease of use foremost in mind. Oh yes, it's FREE.
