    Hi all
    I use my laptop on a stand and when typing (only small tasks, i.e. a bit of facebook) I find it a normal to reach up and uncomfortably hit the keys. Is there software that would allow me to type say, with my mouse by hitting on screen letters/numbers. I googled for this but couldn't find anything. Does such software exist?
    Thanks

    In 10.4

    System Preferences / International / Input Menu

    check: Keyboard viewer
    check: Show Input menu in menu bar

    probably similar for 10.5
