Google Launched Multilingual Virtual Keyboard
Sometimes I go to cyber cafe and the internet surfing zone of my college library. I often complain about the broken keyboard. So i used to carry my virtual keyboard in my pen drive, despite of a keyboard provided by Windows OS. This also helps me to keep myself safe from password theft. Oh yes keyloggers (software & hardware) can read your every keystroke.
Out of my fascination Search Giant, I think now Web Giant Google launched Virtual Keyboard in more than 35 languages. Users can now input their search queries in their regional language. However last year Google launched Transliteration Input Method Editor [IME], by this small nifty tool users were able to type in their regional languages without any typing knowledge.
To use this tool go to Google search home page in your regional language. Beside the search querry field, you will find this icon By clicking this keyboard icon a virtual AJAX keyboard will pop up. Now you can enter your queries with this multilingual keyboard.
However If your language in not currently included in the list. There is no need to disappoint, as Google promised to increase the no of language supported and you can also vote [click here] for your language.
The Languages Supported are:
Albanian, Hindi, Arabic, Armenian, Basque, Belarusian, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Finnish, Galician, Georgian, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Icelandic, Kazakh, Kirghiz, Macedonian, Malayalam, Mongolian, Persian, Polish, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Swedish, Tatar, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Uzbek
Google knows the pulses of it's users, knows about every problem users face. This was one of the biggest trouble for users, as in India we use the Roman English keyboard. More than half of Indian population is ignorant of English, unable to enter proper search query. And also they are not able to type in Hindi. So I find it very useful for people, especially the villagers.
