Virtual Keyboard Gate2Home.com

by 4 others
This site enables you to write in your language wherever you are in the world, with an online onscreen keyboard emulator. The main purpose of this site is to let everyone who gets stuck without the ability to write/type/search the internet in their own language be able to do just that (usually travelers/tourists or anyone in front of a foreign computer). The need for this site arose due to the lack of possibility to change the keyboard language at internet places around the world. These places usually allow you to view sites in your language due to IE language encoding, but don't allow you to type in your language (because of administrator or system limitations). Furthermore, even if you can change the language, you'll probably find yourself in front of a keyboard with a different language layout, and you'll have to guess the position of the keys. However, this site solves those problems by allowing you to type in your language, and to view your language's keyboard layout on-screen in a virtual Semi-Real keyboard. It also allows you to simply type in a different language without messing with the operating system settings.
