    What has to be done for activating onscreen keyboard on Windows 7?

    As the keyboard with my PC running on Windows 7 was not working for the past few weeks, I gave it for repair. Now, I want to bring up the onscreen keyboard on my system for typing various documents. What should I do for that?

    Go to the bottom part of the desktop and locate the ‘Start’ button from the left side. Make a single click on that button by the time you find it. This will open up the start menu above the button. Navigate through that menu and click the ‘All Programs’ option. Another list of options will be displayed on the menu afterwards from which click the ‘Accessories’ option. The next step required is to click the ‘Ease of Access’ option visible on the menu. You can then find the ‘On-Screen Keyboard’ item under this option. Click that item to bring up the onscreen keyboard on the desktop.

    • Choose Start→Control Panel→Ease of Access→Ease of Access Center.
      The Ease of Access Center appears and Windows 7s ethereal voice kicks in, explaining how to change its programs.
      The Ease of Access Center contains a wide variety of ways to help users with physical limitations.

      If youd rather not hear the Narrator, click the Always Read This Section Aloud checkbox to deselect the feature.
    • Click the Start On-Screen Keyboard button.
      A keyboard appears, floating in the middle of your screen.
      If youre having a hard time with the size of the keys, you can use your mouse to drag the keyboard larger or smaller to resize the keys.
    • Test out the on-screen keyboard input in any application where you can enter text.
      Open WordPad or a similar application and give it a go. You might notice that the process is a bit slow, but if you have physical impairments that make using a traditional keyboard difficult or impossible, the on-screen keyboard is a great help. And the good news is that you can now modify several of the Keyboards options to speed things up.
      To use keystroke combinations (such as Ctrl+Z), click the first key (in this case, Ctrl) and then click the second key (Z). You dont have to hold down the first key as you do with a regular keyboard.
    • Click the Options button at the lower right of the on-screen keyboard.
      You can use the on-screen keyboard options to customize the way it works on your computer.
      • Sound: Turn click sound on or off.
      • Click on the keys or hover over the keys: Hovering is particularly helpful for those with limited finger control.
      • Test Prediction: This handy new feature tries to predict what words you're typing and then provides you with buttons showing you its predictions. You can click one of these buttons to complete your word instead of typing the remaining letters individually.
        The more you use this feature, the more it gets to know you and the words you typically use. Your most frequently used words will move to the top of the list, speeding up your typing even more.
      • Scan through Keys: This is another new feature that allows you select an entire row of keys instead of individual keys. It sounds strange, but when you combine Scan through Keys with Prediction, youll be amazed at how quickly it can predict the words you might want to use.
    • Click the Close button on the On-Screen Keyboard when youre finished using it.
