Netherlands-based Mac software developer Niemeijer Consult has released KeyStrokes 1.5, a new update to the company’s on-screen keyboard for Mac OS X. The software has been developed to enable physically challenged users to wield a mouse or other pointing device in place of a hardware keyboard.

The new version features “Dwellix,” an advanced dwelling feature that provides the ability to type without actually mouse-clicking. What’s more, SmartTransparency makes the on-screen keyboard invisible when you don’t need it, reappearing when you do. KeyStrokes 1.5 is even available in a localized French version now.
Compatible with both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X, KeyStrokes 1.5 is compatible with mice, trackballs, head pointers, touch screens, and other mouse emulators. It’ll type characters in any standard Mac app and automatically adjusts to US and international keyboard layouts.
KeyStrokes can also support multiple resizeable keyboard models, and is capable of working with command-key combos, dead keys, and modifier-key combinations.
KeyStrokes 1.5 costs US$195 or €220 (excluding VAT). The 1.5 release is free for current users, too. A downloadable demo is available from the Web site.
