Press release: AssistiveWare announces KeyStrokes 4.1 on-screen keyboard
for Mac OS X
Amsterdam – 25 June 2008 – AssistiveWare today announced the release of
KeyStrokes 4.1, an important new version of the award-winning on-screen
keyboard with multilingual word prediction for Mac users with physical
impairments. Version 4.1 is now Universal Binary, offers enhanced
compatibility with Spaces, and on Leopard provides automatic layout
switching when the user changes the keyboard layout in the Mac OS X Input
menu. Also included is a newly released LayoutKitchen 2.1.1 layout editor,
which allows users to design their own on-screen keyboards.
KeyStrokes is not only used by Mac users with disabilities, but also by
graphic designers who prefer typing with their tablet instead of a physical
keyboard and by developers of touch screen kiosks.
KeyStrokes 4.1 requires Mac OS X 10.4 and later. The suggested retail price
for KeyStrokes is 249 Euro excluding VAT (299 USD in North America).
Registered KeyStrokes 3 users can use the new version, but to use
LayoutKitchen and design their own keyboards an upgrade to a KeyStrokes 4
activation code is required. An upgrade from KeyStrokes 3 to KeyStrokes 4
(including LayoutKitchen) costs 99 euro excluding VAT (129 USD in North
America). This upgrade is free for anyone who purchased KeyStrokes 3 in
2007 or 2008. For more info they should contact
