All the keyboards in Oska are fully customisable, allowing the keyboard to be edited to suit the requirements of each user and task. Keyboards created with Oska work with touch screen devices, touchpad’s, mice, keyboard, joysticks and switch devices.
Oska Settings Editor
After a keyboard is created, the input methods can be defined and customised in the Oska Settings Editor. In addition, certain keys can be further defined by the user, giving further capability.
One Switch Mouse
One Switch Mouse enables a user to control the mouse pointer using a single switch. Coupling One Switch Mouse with Oska On-Screen Keyboard offers the user the ability to control the mouse and write.
