Projects / Florence


Florence is a scalable on-screen virtual keyboard for GNOME that stays out of your way when you don't need it. It is useful if you can't use a real keyboard either because of a handicap, disease, broken keyboard, or tablet PC but you can use a pointing device. It aims at being easy and pretty.
