FlickType Keyboard – For Effortless Low-Vision Typing

Every day we use a keyboard to type on our devices to search for something or to communicate with friends and family, but what if the user has a vision impairment or is blind? How can they know what keys to push? There’s an app called FlickType Keyboard which supports regular touch‑typing where you explore the keyboard and then lift your finger to enter the desired character. With tap‑typing, you can type up to three or four times faster without having to wait for character feedback on every letter. Just lightly tap where you think each letter is, and FlickType’s powerful algorithm will correctly guess the right word almost every time! Not the right word? Simply flick down to change it and just continue typing. The free version of FlickType Keyboard can be used within the app only, but if you want to use it as a default keyboard on your system to be able to access it in different apps you can subscribe for 99¢ per month. The app offers a 7 day free trial to test it out. You can download it here. Check out the video.
