    Re: The no typing thread

    does it include virtual keyboard?
    cause this message was written with ms virtual keyboard.


    in case virtual keyboard is out of the game the next line was written with mouse using copy & paste:

    Hello world.

    I rewired my speakers into an I/O device to scan noise frequencies which I can control with a pencil sharpener next to me. I can put differently weighted paper in the thing to cover the lower case letters, and I can crush cardboard to different densities to cover the upper cases. I haven't figured out how to toggle capslock, and the cardboard is really messing up my pencil sharpener. It may go out of service by the time I finish a sentence of yelling at you guys.

    i never understood the purpose of onscreen keyboard.....
    but now i found a meaningful use...... :-)

    ok, let's say: suppose someone gets involved in an accident, he looses his left arm, 4 fingers of the right hand and the remaining finger gets sticked to his nose... i suppose he'll get the keyboard more comfortable than the mouse....... no?

    Re: The no typing thread

    okay, I"m breaking my own rule and using the keyboard - this is an XP machine, so no Vista Speech Recognition here....

    I should have said no keyboard or mouse. I was working on a chapter for a Vista book this week-end that includes a section on speech recognition. I wanted to see if I could actually use the software to open up IE, surf to Codeguru and enter a post -- all without the keyboard or mouse, only using voice.

    The software isn't perfect, but it is getting there. As this tread attests, I was able to accomplish my task.

    Side comments --

    The on-screen keyboard is good for tablet devices. It is also good for touch screens. Its main purpose, however, is for people who can't use a keyboard due to a disability.

    Calculator - you better get your patent for that quickly before Microsoft or someone else does..... (and might I recommend you use caution in what you allow it to type.... )

    Well Brad, it`s ot fair if you are using virtual keybopard(screen keyboard) it`s also a keyboard but just with another design
    And it`s only one way to put text to computer (I doubt that it`s possible with browsers so not to this nice forum) is to use microphone and speach regonition engine
    God could improve essentially a
    human nature, but he
    was too anxious with compatibility
    with the monkey.
