Is there a free small on screen keyboard out there somewhere that consists only of arrow buttons, space bar and enter key. Something that is customisable to those sorts of functions anyway.

I work with my mouse whenever I can because sitting back in a reclining chair can making using a keyboard a little difficult.

just wondering

thanks.

For free i doubt it.

The API for the virtual keyboard from a quick look is rather meh, its probably doable but i'd be looking at places that support disabilities as those are the sort of places which will build the right stuff and probably make it adjustable enough to be able to fit the changing needs.

If you own a smartphone, look up Roccat's Power-Grid.

You can configure your ipad/iphone/whatever as a remote control, with macro-function or self-designed buttons (cursor, tab, enter? why not?).

I like it


Edit: oh, and it's free!

I use my 55" HD TV for the internet while sitting in my recliner.Use laptop and tablet into HD TV input.

The ltop and tablet is my keyboard....and everything shows huge as like on computer.

Also, my phone(cheap smart one) can broadcast to TV via chrome cast. And I don't need chrome to use.

there are plenty of wireless keyboards on the market for cheap, try one of them from your recliner, most of them only need a usb port to plug the IR Receiver into, some run on replaceable batteries others need to be plugged in to charge every once in awhile,

i have a wireless mouse from logitech that i can use from my couch 15 feet from my pc.

also, windows does come with its own on screen keyboard installed, just type the word keyboard into your start menu it'll be in the list.

Thanks people, some good ideas there. Got an idea I'm bit backward with techo stuff?

Um...English. What part of what I described did you not understand? I can break it down a bit more simply if you'd like.

Na, its just all the techo stuff I don't understand. I struggle to keep up my PC going let alone keep up with all the techo terminology and devices of today. It all goes right over my head.
