Why the question mark? :roll: It was posted to the "Portable Freeware Submission" for a reason after all.

It means "I haven't tested it, so I'm not sure"... ;)

Frogpad is a keyboard hardware that allows typing with only one hand.
The company also offers a software to convert existing keyboard to a one-hand keyboard (Mac only):

http://www.frogpad.com/qwerty-frog.php

Does anyone come across a similar software for PC? If not, that would be great to develop one (in AutoIt? <- keyword to attract guinness' attention :)).

In fact I had this idea before searching for such a software.

It would be easy to implement, BUT, having that keypad makes things a lot easier. So it's an interesting project, but impractical without the right tools.

Not sure it were impractical if you could type with only one hand anywhere on existing keyboards (if there was a portable software available).

I'm afraid special international characters could raise issues instead.

I mean how would you remember what is a or s or t? That's what I meant by the term impractical. With that little mousepad thing it's visually easier.

Might be able to create one using existing keyboard remapping tools. Would be very valuable for handicapped folks or possibly for mobile users who need a very small keyboard.

Those "form fillers" are best as browser extensions in my humble opinion.
