Joystick-To-Mouse 2.80 Release 5 now available to address Windows updates
written January 24, 2017 by Kermit Komm
Category: Development Tags: Joystick-To-Mouse; Text Scaling;    #73
 

A relatively minor update to the Windows 10/8.1/8 version of Joystick-To-Mouse is now available, tagged as Version 2.80 Release 5. Changes were made to the Joystick-To-Mouse executables, along with date and release text updates. This update is an example of the maintenance that is required of software - here is the background and details:
A new customer was using Joystick-To-Mouse on their Home Theater PC, using an Xbox 360 wireless controller, but ran into an issue when going into Start->Settings->System->Display->Change text size (or Display | Advanced Settings, set Custom Text size) to make the text easier to see on their flat screen TV. Basically whenever the setting was something other than 100%, the mouse cursor ran to the bottom-right of the screen, and made the software unusable. A Tech Support case was created, and it bubbled up to the development staff, since there was no quick solution available. The first step in resolving issues is to be able to duplicate the problem, and this was quickly done, but trying to understand why the DPI change was the cause of the problem seemed odd, as the software already had a SetProcessDPIAware call that was added back in the updates for Windows 8. DPI stands for Dots Per Inch, which is used in Windows to map things on to the display. In digging into the code and documentation, it turns out the preferred approach for a process is to use now is the program manifest vs. the API call, and it must be noted that is not uncommon for the preferred solution to change when dealing with Windows API based software. In testing and working with rebuilt/remanifested executables, it was discovered that the existing software did work just fine with custom text sizes in Windows 8, but not in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Also it should be noted that testing in a normal system would never expose this issue - only doing custom text sizing would make the problem occur. So the only required change was to remove the deprecated SetProcessDPIAware call, and update the manifests for the required executable files. Then comes the testing, and rolling into an updated release.

In an ideal world, with infinite resources, complete regression testing would have caught this issue. But customers simply won't pay thousands of dollars for a little utility program. Plus why should a problem that was found, and fixed, and in the software need testing on what was a mostly a cosmetic update to Windows 8? It turns out the API used had some issues, so it was deprecated (most likely around the Windows 8.1 release), but the thought that every Windows API used in a Windows software program needs to be reviewed for every Windows release just to see if there have been changes makes little business sense, so customers need to be understanding of the realities of modern software. Maybe someday non-IMG software will be engineered and maintained in a disciplined manner, but that is not the world we live in today.

Joystick-To-Mouse continues to be in demand, and provides a unique capability that IMG updates and maintains. Now that only secure, code-signed programs can access the user interface capabilities needed to perform the function that Joystick-To-Mouse provides, it may be a good idea to "Tell a Friend", and let your gamer friends know that they can "play" their internet browser, or "drive" Windows, or use Windows on a large screen TV with large text! Just as many eyes make bugs shallow, many customers make resources available for more development, more testing, and more features...

Hormel Foods Corporation renews Annual Maintenance for Enterprise License
written November 15, 2016 by Tracy Chang
Category: PR Tags: Enterprise License; My-T-Soft    #72
 

While working with a migration to Windows 7 from older units, Hormel Foods technical staff ran into some license issues due to disparate systems from different vendors with different versions of My-T-Soft. Hormel Foods has been using My-T-Soft software since 2003, but in reviewing the license status for their Enterprise license, it was determined that the Annual Maintenance had lapsed. Working with Supply Chain Services, and working with a catch-up provision, Hormel was able to renew the Annual Maintenance for their existing Enterprise license, and obtain the new (and old) enterprise-wide licenses needed to make the transition smooth and easy.

The My-T-Soft® Family (My-T-Pen, My-T-Soft, My-T-Soft Terminal Server, and My-T-Touch) along with IMG's Build-A-Board Keyboard Designer offers a consistent cross-platform onscreen user interface that is fully customizable and programmable for various hardware / software platforms. It allows customers to control user input in any field or any application and maintain a higher level of security than with a traditional physical keyboard or membrane panel.

Understanding the KeyBoard File (.KBF file)
written August 23, 2016 by Kermit Komm
Category: Development Tags: My-T-Soft; Keyboard File; Keyboard Data; Technical detail    #71
 

With more & more new users, many of whom are creating layouts with My-T-Soft® Build-A-Board, occassionally there are questions regarding the keyboard layout files, their naming conventions, and what they are all about. In this entry, we will cover some history, some relevant details & distinctions, and a look into the future.

In the before time, the original release of My-T-Mouse utilized 3 main types of configuration files - files with .KBF, .KMF and .INI extensions. The keyboard data file was named with a .KBF extension for KeyBoard File. This data file contained panel rectangles, key rectangles, and window configuration information. The actual key labels and key actions were contained in the .KMF files - Keyboard Macro Files, which lended itself well to international / different keyboard layouts (same physical layout, different labels/key actions). User configuration information was in the initialization file, or MYTMOUSE.INI. Because certain data spanned the user configuration and had an effect on the keyboard display (i.e. size, visible keys, panels open, etc.), the intertwined nature of the .INI and .KBF file became a factor when working with the 1.xx software. Because of this, for best results when manipulating the keyboard software, using BOTH the .INI and .KBF files as a matched pair was recommended when externally controlling layout changes.

Due to various user interface conventions and customer requests, along with design considerations, the .KBF file became more & more flexible, and could be manipulated in various ways. For example, when the keyboard software is opened, it reads in the data file (.KBF file), along with user options (.INI file) and then configures things based on these settings (the KMF file in user relied on the Keyboard= setting in the .INI file). Since the user could have changed the .INI file via the separate Setup tool (or programmatically via Developer Kit tools), settings such as layout size might need to reconfigure the data read in from the current/saved .KBF file. The general approach was that user settings in the .INI overruled the .KBF file. However, due to design decisions and the possibility of impossible manipulations because of certain internal constraints, it became necessary to require that both the .INI and .KBF be a matched pair when being used to create multiple configurations for "on-the-fly" layout changes.

When the 2.xx software was designed, keeping the .KBF as the single / only data file was deemed the best solution. Having multiple files that needed to be managed to ensure proper display/operation is not keeping in line with making things as straightforward and as easy as possible for users and developers, so the single .KBF file per layout is how things work with the 2.xx software. Because there are many examples of "user" or "field" settings that need to be part of the keyboard layout data, an embedded MYTSOFT.INI has been incorporated into the 2.20 KBF data structure. This allows tools such as KBFEdit to open and modify these user based settings in the field by the user, allowing certain customizations for operational aspects and user settings.

In most cases, the single .KBF as data for a keyboard layout, with incorporated operational aspects works very well - in the spectrum of ideal to acceptable. However, there are situations where there are issues. Cases where the user should not be able to make modifications, or where there are many layouts and user settings should be "per user" can be accommodated, but not as easily as program/user options separated from the layout data. But before we touch upon future enhancements, let's review how the current Build-A-Board system works and creates .KBF files.

The Build-A-Board Builder creates its own sub-folder in the Public Documents location, and under the Build-A-Board folder, there are 3 folders: SOURCE, TARGET, BOARDS. Under the SOURCE and TARGET folders, there are Project Name folders. Let's use an example, and walk through the general steps. If you create a project called MyAwesomeLayout, you will get a sub-folder in SOURCE\MyAwesomeLayout. In that folder you will find all the source files that contain the information displayed in the Layout Builder - window size, keys, key sizes, key labels, key actions, etc., etc. When you close a project in the Builder, all the text and data files will be zipped up (i.e. compressed) into a single Project source file, e.g. SOURCE\MyAwesomeLayout\MyAwesomeLayout.zip.

When you open a closed project, it will be unzipped, and all the data from the project source files will be read in to the Builder, and the customizable layout will be presented, where properties, actions, etc. can all be modified. Then you can select a Run-Time Target - Linux or Windows, ANSI or UNICODE, 32-bit or 64-bit, and various other platforms & combinations of run-time targets. When you Build the project, the Project Name folder in the TARGET folder will be created, along with a Test sub-folder and the target folder, e.g. MSWIN32 for Windows 32-bit targets. So the run-time files for Win32 would be in TARGET\MyAwesomeLayout\MSWIN32. This folder could be copied to a Win32 system, and the MYTSOFT.exe can be run, showing the MyAwesomeLayout layout. In the TARGET\MyAwesomeLayout there are 2 .KBF files - MyAwesomeLayout.KBF and KEYBOARD.KBF. These are also in the Test folder (used for testing/running on the system running Build-A-Board), and in any run-time target folders. Also, the MyAwesomeLayout.KBF is copied to the BOARDS folder - so when the Board select option is used in My-T-Soft, it will appear as a board option to select.

The reason there are 2 .KBF files is that by default, when My-T-Soft is run, it will look for and run KEYBOARD.KBF - so each project always copies the Project Name .KBF file to KEYBOARD.KBF. The reason the project name is used (e.g. MyAwesomeLayout.KBF) is for dealing with many different projects, so each unique project has a unique .KBF file name.

So what data does a 2.xx .KBF file contain? For those that are interested, it is pretty easy to review the text files in the SOURCE folder for an open project and get a general idea. These are the main aspects of a layout file: Window information, Panel information, key positions, and then key information. Then there is supporting data - key images, base & international macro files (.KMF data), state data, image data, platform license data, and the MYTSOFT.INI. As much as possible, the user interface and operational aspects are controlled by the .KBF file / layout data.

So what does the future hold? There are actually many different items under development and slated for future enhancement regarding the .KBF KeyBoard File. As a single data file that defines the keyboard, the 2.xx approach has been deemed a success. To accommodate user specific options, an override approach has been defined as the best/most flexible. The way this will be implemented will be a user editable MYTSOFT.INI which can contain a subset of all possible entries, and those that are in the MYTSOFT.INI in the user application data/configuration area will be used as the actual setting, potentially overriding any matching setting in the .KBF file. Note that these user settings will apply to all .KBF files run, so any user settings set in this manner will apply to all layouts run. This approach will allow multiple users on a system to have different operational settings, all while using the same .KBF. If there are not user specific settings, then the settings in the .KBF will be used.

The general approach is for .KBF files to be layout files that can be used across multiple platforms. Because of platform differences, certain aspects of the layout may be interpreted differently based on the platform, screen resolution, system capabilities, etc. How these will continue to evolve depends on actual use cases and customer requirements. Although not yet formalized, the 3.xx release anticipates merging all capabilities of 1.xx and 2.xx software, along with additional capabilities incorporated based on real world customer input. As the original .KBF implementation passes 25 years of use, a nod can be made to its original design & flexibility, and a hearty thank you to the customers that have used and continue to implement the software to address and solve real world needs.

IMG is pleased to announce that My-T-Soft® 1.90 is now available
written May 26, 2016 by Kermit Komm
Category: Development Tags: My-T-Soft 1.90 Release    #70
 

The My-T-Soft® 1.90 release is an important milestone in the life of the product - it merges both the established 1.xx software with the new Build-A-Board based software, supports multiple versions of Windows that IMG's customers are using (Windows 7, 8, 8.1 & Windows 10), has both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, ties into an automated update system, ties into the online database of layouts, and includes all requested features & capabilities.

My-T-Soft traces its lineage back to the original My-T-Mouse release of 1993, and continues to be developed and improved, with added features & capabilities requested by customers and users. The 1.90 is a major step because it incorporates the 1.xx branch of the software and the 2.xx next generation branch (see Build-A-Board and My-T-Soft Basic) that easily blends custom layouts with the preset layouts that are part of the 1.xx software.

Where previous versions supported the 2.10 style layouts from Build-A-Board, the new release of My-T-Soft 1.90 now supports the current 2.20 style layouts, which feature full Unicode support, key style themes, external DLL integration options, and optional layout selection.

The license manager also includes support for new Build-A-Board.com Account based licenses. Where a IMG Personal License-Basic is sufficient for a My-T-Soft Basic install, the IMG Personal License-Standard is available for personal use of the full My-T-Soft 1.90.

For those technically inclined, here are key items that this release incorporates.

  • All code has been moved into the same Visual Studio environment for easy targeting of 32-bit and 64-bit builds for Windows targets.
  • Embedded manifests has support for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10
  • Build-A-Board 2.xx run-time software is same as My-T-Soft Basic release, and supports layouts in the Public Documents Build-A-Board Boards folder, along with ability to tie to Build-A-Board.com accounts and favorite boards
  • The IMG Smart Download software is 32-bit (so it can run on both 32-bit and 64-bit windows), but can sense a 64-bit system, and will pull down and start the installation of the 64-bit My-T-Soft build.
The included Build-A-Board run-time My-T-Soft 2.30 software includes these features:
  • Key Action/Label abstraction allows operation with version 1.xx Keyboard Macro Files - allows for quick change of language/layout/operation
  • Key image selection - layout appearance can be changed at will within Build-A-Board
  • Region (display) support - arbitrary shapes possible, along with rounded edges or split layouts
  • Integrated board selection tool
  • Get My Boards command and selection option
  • Embedded Macro support
  • KBF Editor (KeyBoard File) included for field editable options
  • TypeFile tool included for external macro support
  • Arbitrary Startup / Shutdown executable support
  • Cursor / Move / Menu options (per board)
  • Key Zoom (Key Echo feedback window) options
  • Parallax settings
  • Key Block timeout settings
  • Support for external DLL display

As a release for existing customers, this provides a bridge between the older software and the next generation. With the full capabilities of both code bases, and multiple Windows versions support, it makes sense as an upgrade, or the next step for new systems. By also bringing in all the capabilities of the Build-A-Board run-time, it adds a great deal of functionality within the main product, vs. the choice between 2 possible solutions, as was previously the case.

For developers and integrators, it provides a wealth of possible solutions to the user interface needs of sophisticated systems. By integrating a flexible on-screen keyboard solution (not tied into the fixed/limited options of the Windows based option), a comprehensive, secure user interface can be built.

For those not familiar with the depth & power of My-T-Soft, this provides a comprehensive solution all in one package.

Understanding the differences between the IMG Personal License (Basic/Standard) and the IMG Professional License
written May 25, 2016 by Kermit Komm
Category: Development Tags: IMG Personal License, IMG Professional License, Licensing    #69
 

Innovation Management Group, Inc. has always released high-quality software that can run for years without a need for updates. IMG uses license restrictions to balance business requirements, maintain professional standards, and to ensure a viable financial model for its employees and customers. IMG has regularly changed licensing options to meet customer needs and to achieve the best balance between license restrictions and ease of use/deployment. There are numerous license options available, including negotiated license agreements, software escrow, and technology transfers. For most individuals and many companies, this is much too involved, so a simple mechanism to generate revenue & provide access to IMG's software has resulted in the IMG Personal License and the IMG Professional License. This is a slightly technical overview that outlines the key distinctions between these licenses.

Sometime around 2012, IMG started working towards a more technology oriented approach vs. a product oriented approach. Although we still deliver our software in a product oriented way, we also are working towards a more straightforward relationship with our customers, not focusing on the specific product or products in use, but more on the customer relationship and keeping things as simple as possible for all customers, whether they are an individual having fun with Joystick-To-Mouse, or a global enterprise deploying custom My-T-Soft layouts throught the world.

The IMG Personal License (IPL) options, along with the IMG Professional License, utilize a Build-A-Board.com online account so users can manage their account & licenses, and can access the online database of keyboard layouts. As of 2016, the IMG Personal License-Basic includes access to My-T-Soft Basic, Joystick-To-Mouse, SmartClick, TouchRight Utilities, and WordComplete. The IMG Personal License-Standard includes access to all IPL-Basic software and also includes access to My-T-Soft 1.90. These personal licenses are meant for individuals who want access to the software, but do not want to pay the full license amount for support, maintenance, etc. These licenses require system access to the internet to retrieve system-tied licenses, and do not qualify for support beyond what is available within the software, tech support knowledgebase, and other online resources.

The IMG Professional License adds the ability to license systems not connected to the internet, and qualifies for technical and programming support along with maintenance & upgrade options.

For individuals using the IMG Personal License, once a system is licensed, the license is perpetual for that system, and this system does not need the internet or a valid Build-A-Board.com account to remain licensed. However, if there is a major operating system re-install, or system restore, or other major system event that invalidates the license, it would need the internet and access a valid Build-A-Board.com account to re-license. For practical purposes, once a system is licensed, the license lasts the life of the system. Note that for individuals who constantly rebuild systems, or swap hard drives, or are developers, the IMG Personal License is probably not the best choice.

Key licensing aspects to understand about the IMG Personal License and the relationship to the Build-A-Board.com account:

  • A valid (active/non-expired) Build-A-Board.com account is required to license a system
  • Build-A-Board.com accounts are valid for 1 year and can be renewed or reactivated if expired
  • a system must have internet access to apply for and retrieve its license
  • all licensing actions must be from the system being licensed (you cannot use a different system - if you do, you will license that system)
  • Once a license is used on a system, it cannot be removed or transferred (the system is licensed for the life of the system)
  • 3 system activations (licenses) are included (e.g. 1 laptop/1 desktop/1 mobile)
  • Additional IPL purchases will add licenses, and extend the expiration date
  • the license uses a unique system ID / system registry entry to identify the system, and the license file generated and retrieved on to the system must match this system ID. Moving the license file to another system will not match and the license will be invalid, and a major system registry change (i.e. rebuilt system) will also fail to license

The IMG Professional License adds a few additional capabilities:

  • Licenses can be granted to any system (with or without internet access) using the 16 character System ID that is used to generate a License Key/Serial Number unlock pair from within the License Manager tab in a Build-A-Board.com account
  • Qualifies for full technical and/or programming support
  • account can be renewed at maintenance rates (15%)

As always, if there are specific circumstances that are not correctly managed by these license approaches, please contact IMG Customer Service to assist and resolve any issues.

By integrating the software with an personalized internet account, IMG's user interface software along with customized layouts can be quickly retrieved on different devices. Expanding on what the band The Fixx said in their song, "Less Cities, More Moving People" we are moving towards a world with More People, and even More Connected Devices. Creating a platform to quickly and easily access the tools & user interface software necessary to be productive is one of the underlying reasons for building this approach. When a customer gets a new device or moves to a different one, rather than downloading/installing/configuring software, someone can log on and then quickly & easily download their software & configuration. By having a centralized / personalized account, this becomes a breeze. For companies utilizing operator panels or customized interface options, when a new system needs to be deployed, this internet account becomes the ideal way to add IMG software to a unit.

The IMG Personal and IMG Professional licenses tied to a Build-A-Board.com account provides everything necessary for customers to manage their IMG software, along with access to the growing online database of layouts and ways to personalize & customize their configuration.

Keeping your Annual fees paid is a great idea (& can make employees happy)

In 2010, Dendreon Corporation (a biotechnology company) purchased a small Enterprise license for My-T-Soft and has kept the license in force each year by paying the Annual Maintenance fee. So when the IT manager at a second location called to inquire about pricing, it did not take too long to determine the relationship and that the location was covered by the existing license. The upgrade to a newer release was also covered by the maintenance arrangement, and suddenly the IT manager's budget was not going to be impacted at all. So instead of a purchase request and the whole purchasing process, the IT Manager could simply download the license and deploy as needed in his location. So the purchasing agent or software license manager at the head office deserves thanks (& maybe even lunch) for their foresight and commitment to IMG's technology - what started as a tedious task for the IT manager turned into a simple download with no additional effort needed. That is what "having your back" is all about.

A different situation arose when a Clever Devices employee (provider of innovative technology solutions for all modes of public transportation) was doing testing and development on a Windows Server platform. Since 2012, Clever Devices has had an Annual Distribution agreement with IMG, and the license they had was for deployment on stand-alone systems. After determining their agreement was in force, IMG was able to quickly release a Server license so their developer could continue testing on the Server platform. Once again showing that these reasonable annual fees provide value so when the need arises, a quick & easy solution is readily available.

Understanding User Interface Privilege Isolation (UIPI) with My-T-Soft
written March 31, 2015 by Kermit Komm
Category: Development Tags: My-T-Soft, User Interface, UIPI, Privilege, Security    #60
 

Luckily there have not been too many issues that pop up regarding the UIPI approach used in Windows since the release of Windows Vista. Many issues can be resolved in a satisfactory way by turning off User Account Control (UAC). In cases where the security or policy requires UAC to remain on, the next simplest solution is to run My-T-Soft as an Administrator. Since version 1.79, all possible executable options are included with the release software - executables built with the manifest set with asInvoker, highestAvailable, and requireAdministrator. My-T-Soft ships with the asInvoker setting, which is the most secure and the recommended option. However, in a secure environment, any elevated process will not be able to receive input when UIPI prevents My-T-Soft from sending input (i.e. keystrokes) due to privilege isolation. The following explains what is going on in the context of running My-T-Soft when a UIPI situation arises preventing normal / expected operation of My-T-Soft.

Typically, a user runs applications/programs and My-T-Soft in the security context of themselves as a logged on user, and everything works as expected. However, executables can include a manifest to tell the operating system how to treat the security and access privileges when running the program. For example, Setup/installation programs typically raise the privilege level to Administrator so that the operations required will run without further warnings. When User Account Control is on, the user will be presented with a dialog requiring the user to acknowledge or enter a password to continue. If a security application or other tool is run in the context of an Administrator, the privilege isolation prevents processes running in a different security context (i.e. the limited, logged on user) from accessing or interacting with the raised privileged Administrator application. What this means in practice, is that My-T-Soft will not be able to type into an Admin privileged executable when My-T-Soft is being run in the context of the limited user. And this can cause confusion, because Windows does not make any distinction once the application is run & the dialog/password acknowledged. To the average Windows user, who may get used to the occassional security dialog, there will be no connection between the fact that they raised the privilege level of an application and the fact that they cannot interact with it using My-T-Soft like other normal privileged applications.

In some cases, users may wish to run the highestAvailable or requireAdministrator tagged My-T-Soft executables, so the privilege level will be raised when My-T-Soft is run, and operation during the logged on session will be as the user desires. This can be done by modifying the startup shortcut, or simply creating a new shortcut, or renaming the executable, e.g. rename MYTSOFT.highestAvailable.exe to MYTSOFT.exe. In cases where My-T-Soft is running in an elevated privilege state, there can be issues with Developer's Kit utilities - typically when these are run, they are run in the context of the logged on user, and have that privilege level. However, if My-T-Soft is elevated, then it may not be visible/accessible by the Developer's Kit utilities. As a real world example, an OEM uses the elevated executable, and their customer was moving from a workstation to a remote session with a limited user, and then could not get the utilities to operate. After outlining the UIPI issues (which seemed foreign and made no sense to the customer at the beginning of the process), explaining that the limited user was running the Developer's Kit utilities and could not interact with the elevated My-T-Soft executable helped, but it took a detailed walk through from the point of view of security, privileges, and emphasizing that a lower level process could not interact with the Administrator process (simply not allowed) to connect the dots. Luckily in this case, running My-T-Soft as the lower level/logged on user resolved the problem.

As detailed, current releases provide all options to help resolve different situations that can arise using My-T-Soft, but understanding the User Interface Privilege Isolation is important due to the fact that My-T-Soft is a user interface tool.

Key Recorder records and formats keystroke macros

As more and more end-users work with My-T-Soft vs. commercial developers, different needs arise and some good suggestions are being made. In order to provide a simple way to record keystroke macros for My-T-Soft 1.xx Macro Panels or Build-A-Board Key Actions, a new Keystroke macro Recorder is now available and will roll into updates as things move forward.

You can download KeyRecorder here. This is a simple utility that uses either the Pause key or the Scroll Lock key to toggle recording keystroke macros with correct syntax markup to drop directly into any place a macro can be saved. My-T-Soft or the physical keyboard can be used during the recording, so the appropriate sequence/steps can be performed, and then by stopping the recording, the formatted keystroke macro is placed on the clipboard! Then it can be pasted into the appropriate place, or Notepad can be used to collect a whole sequence of keystroke macros (Be sure to paste/save the macro before recording another one - a new recording overwrites the clipboard)

There are 2 executables - the regular KeyRecord with runs at the same privilege level as the current user, and an Administrator executable that runs at the highest privilege level. For further details, there are additional notes at the tech item QU1115120805 (link above).

My-T-Soft Basic 2.30 is now available!

Category: Development Tags: My-T-Soft Basic;Build-A-Board;Board Browser    #52
 

My-T-Soft Basic has now been released - both as a Free Edition and as part of the IMG Personal License (along with IMG's Build-A-Board system). As a way for an individual user to access boards from the online database of boards at Build-A-Board.com, the stand-alone product named My-T-Soft Basic (also known as the Windows target run-time software from Build-A-Board) has been created. It may be licensed via the IMG Personal License for non-commercial use, and will be rolled into Build-A-Board 2.20 Release 4 for Build-A-Board customers. It includes many updates and capabilities not yet seen in the run-time software.

First and foremost it can access boards from a Build-A-Board.com account, so favorite layouts can be carried across multiple systems. By having a set of favorites (or required layouts) tied to an account, it becomes trivial to install and deploy these layouts onto any system. As the Free Edition, it allows any individual access to boards for various helpful tasks - check out the Edit panel, Windows panel, or even the SMS board for texting, in addition to various keyboards. The Free Edition, while an advertising / marketing tool, still provides value for any Windows user even with its limitations. For those wishing to get the full capabilities of My-T-Soft Basic, the IMG Personal License provides complete access (along with access to the additional titles already part of the license). With the customization capabilities of Build-A-Board, the online database of boards provides the starting point for experiencing what a real interface can do for you - no more dealing with a system provided keyboard, you now have access to what you want, when you want it!

For the technically inclined, here are some of the features available in this release:

  • Key Action/Label abstraction allows operation with version 1.xx Keyboard Macro Files - allows for quick change of language/layout/operation
  • Key image selection - layout appearance can be changed at will within Build-A-Board
  • Region (display) support - arbitrary shapes possible, along with rounded edges or split layouts
  • License options - platform support from Build-A-Board, system licenses via IMG Personal License, image ready deployments, and evaluation licenses
  • Integrated board selection tool
  • May be tied to Build-A-Board.com account
  • Get My Boards command and selection option
  • Embedded Macro support
  • Special Password/Username option
  • KBF Editor (KeyBoard File) included for field editable options
  • TypeFile tool included for external macro support
  • Arbitrary Startup / Shutdown executable support
  • Cursor / Move / Menu options (per board)
  • Key Zoom (Key Echo feedback window) options
  • Parallax settings
  • Key Block timeout settings
  • Support for external DLL display
  • Plus even More!

This also is the first release to utilize what we call the Product Manifest Update. In simple terms, during the "Check for Updates..." option using the IMG Download Manager, the current file manifest is checked against the product release from our download server, and if necessary, individual files (or the complete package of files) will be download and cross-checked to match the current release. This ensures timely updates and a more granular approach to accessing needed updates. Note this is a user requested update process, aimed mainly at accessing new capabilities when they are made available.

Caps Lock - who decides?
written June 6, 2014 by Kermit Komm
Category: Development Tags: Caps Lock; My-T-Soft; IgnoreSystemCapsLock    #47
 

When using the Caps Lock on the My-T-Soft virtual keyboard, way back it was deemed sensible to sync with the physical keyboard so users could go back & forth and not run into a mismatched input state. Then came the users. Then came the programmers doing things in applications. And mixed-case password issues. And special situations with remote interfaces or systems without physical keyboards. To solve a specific problem, the IgnoreSystemCapsLock option was added as an Initialization option. It wasn't too long after that when another situation arose. Finally, it was deemed sensible to resolve all the possibilities that were imaginable, and there were 6 distinct options as to how to treat the Caps Lock key in My-T-Soft. Synchronize to the system or ignore the system; Show Caps state based on Internal Setting or System Setting; and Switch key action. For those interested, this is the entry for IgnoreSystemCapsLock documentation in MYTSOFT.INI.

This is one of those issues where only by doing and working with users and systems in the real world will the actual needs of software be discovered. It also illustrates that there can be situations where software expects to solve problems that are not sensible - i.e. the system with no keyboard that acts as though Caps Lock is always on (as reported by the operating system). So who decides which is the correct action? The person actually using it (to match their expectations). This is only possible with supported, field tested, configurable, and maintained software. Which is why our customers rely on My-T-Soft - it can solve problems they didn't even know they had!

System Design Considerations: The on-screen keyboard - User Control, Application Control, or System Control
written January 9, 2014 by Kermit Komm

System Design Considerations: The on-screen keyboard - User Control, Application Control, or System Control

User, Application, or System - these 3 different approaches for using an on-screen keyboard are major design choices by anyone building a complete computer system.

The first question is: Will the system be general purpose, or will it perform specific tasks? From the point of view of the onscreen keyboard in a touch driven system, which approach the system designer selects becomes a critical choice as to how to implement the way the user can access the onscreen keyboard for text input.

There are various ways an onscreen keyboard can appear on a system - it is always there, it is there on demand, it shows up when needed by the application, it shows up when needed as determined by the system. Additionally, what exactly do you mean by "an onscreen keyboard"?

A good system designer would typically want the flexibility of bringing up a number pad when only numbers are needed, or only the alphabet for password entry, or a full keyboard when doing system level tasks. Aesthetics can also be important, and flexible layouts, colors, keys, sizes, operating logic all are things a "forced by the system" onscreen keyboard can not accommodate.

As computer systems have become more sophisticated, system designers have to be involved in the choice of the operating system, which is a major aspect of what capabilities the finished result will have, along with the cost of the entire device & its software. Since each design choice can affect the options available for the onscreen keyboard, it makes sense for some systems to have components as flexible as possible, so more possibilities are available as choices are made that affect other components of the system.

Even when you look at the history and family of Microsoft Windows, the system level onscreen keyboard has been implemented more ways than anyone would want to think about. A system choice that defines the user interface creates another aspect to face when making decisions on various systems.

IMG's onscreen keyboards have always focused on user control or application control. The fact that we are not involved or put much effort into system control is because this is a poor design choice. A system level approach imposes too many constraints on the infinite flexibility allowed by letting the user or application control the user interface.

There can be security concerns, training concerns, and ease of use concerns. Additionally, it blurs the role of the operating system when the system defines the user interface. While there are benefits that a system controlled onscreen keyboard can offer, these same benefits can be available when used in conjunction with a user or application controlled approach, but a system controlled approach can limit what the user, application designer, or system designer can do - limits which should not be imposed by operating system software.

Having a consistent, flexible onscreen keyboard option that can operate across many versions of Windows (and now multiple platforms) has been a very good thing for many of IMG's customers. Our design choice has always been to let the user or application designer control the onscreen keyboard. When the system forces an onscreen keyboard onto the scene, our software must defer to that design choice.

To have the keyboard software do any design or user interface actions has always seemed counter to what the software was designed and built for. Historically, a keyboard has been a user interface tool, and not much more. So what, then, is an keyboard that shares the screen with the system? Is it more like an input device, or a user interface component? If it is a user interface component, should it be handled by the user, the application, or the system? Since on some systems, the operating system controls the keyboard, these systems can greatly limit what the system can and cannot do.

So when we get asked about having the keyboard do things on its own (such as show up when needed), we point to our Developer's Kit, and discuss the best approaches to handle & manipulate the various keyboard products we offer. Our design approach is to make the keyboard as flexible as our customers need it.

So by definition, the software can't act like an operating system component on its own - that would be up to the system designer, not the keyboard software. For that same reason, if the application will be in control, then the application should be in control - the keyboard portion should be flexible, and easy to manipulate, but the onscreen keyboard should not define when it does whatever it might do. If the user will be in control, then having the keyboard readily accessible is paramount - for example, the classic software has 4 different user selectable minimize options (without even mentioning programmatic options).

So the focus has always been either on the user and what the user might want to do with the keyboard software, or with the application developer, and how to manipulate the keyboard software. So when we get asked to make our keyboard act more like a system keyboard, we remember all the systems that have come & gone, and try to think why it would be a good idea to invest time in something so fleeting - we can point you in the right direction, but with dozens and dozens of systems left behind in the trash can of computer history, we must focus our resources on our customer's current and future needs.

Typically the operating system will provide the bare minimum and force their design choices onto the user - this approach is a poor compromise that typically makes for a less than ideal user interface. When you compare that to what IMG's keyboard software can do, you should be able to see why customers with specific usage scenarios want complete flexibility in their onscreen keyboard software.

The 1.79 release of the My-T-Soft family incorporates 2 main additions - visual Themes and the Touch Panel. Updates also include various settings and capabilities that have been requested by customers or to address installation issues or operational issues that could use more flexibility. Readers should know that we are at the eve of the software's 20 year anniversary, and there are many features & capabilities that only a well established, mature piece of software could contain. There are also a few other important developments, in that the 1.79 release is only for Vista/7, while the 1.80 release is exclusively for Windows 8.

The IMG Product Disc has a 1.78 Release 5 with maintenance updates for 2000/XP, and it is anticipated to be the final release for those platforms. For many years, IMG strove to provide backwards compatibility, all while the regular high-tech industry threw everything out and cared little for adding features & addressing needs for older platforms. At this point, however, we find ourselves in an interesting situation. The industry is splintering into many platforms, so it becomes increasingly difficult to address each and every platform for each new feature, test & verify on each of those platforms, all to find out no one is particularly interested in that feature on a particular platform. The Windows platform now has numerous "flavors", and supporting customers means supporting more and more versions of Windows. In addition to the splintering of the Windows platform, Windows ceases to be the only platform relevant to our customers, and now with the cross-platform Build-A-Board, and future planned enhancements that will eventually encompass, then eclipse the capabilities of the 1.xx software, it is time to realistically look at managing the products in ways that work best for current and future customers. There is also a technical aspect that changes the way development & product releases can be managed, and this forces us to rework our product build and release processes. In the past, a complete DVD build was refined and fine tuned so a signed-off, well tested, and solid release for each product would get built and combined into a single build process, so a single "Make the IMG Product Disc" command was issued, and when you came back in several hours, you'd have the master disc. However, due to the splintered platforms, it now becomes impossible for that single master build machine to compile Windows 32-bit, Windows 64-bit, Windows CE platforms, Windows Server platforms, MacOSX platforms, Linux 32-bit/64-bit platforms, and future platforms - theoretically, it might be possible with virtual machines and some fancy footwork, but it also doesn't fit well with what is sensible, practical, and the best way to address customer wants and needs. Furthermore, as the world becomes more connected, what makes more sense is to drop the retail software requirement of a Product Disc (NOTE: We will still do Product Discs going forward, but they will be handled & managed as snapshots of release software vs. "a master chef bringing everything to the table all at once" type of approach). This frees development to focus on the more in-demand products, the more in-demand platforms, and treat older releases with a maintenance sort of mind-set (rather than another platform with which to test new features and capabilities).

Therefore the 1.79 release makes a break from the history and culmination of over 15 years of getting the Product Disc as the ultimate final result - in fact, the 1.78R4 DVD of 2009 will be the final disc made with that approach. The 1.79 release will incorporate 2 separate builds, 1 for the final 2000/XP 1.78 R5, and 1 for the 1.79 Vista/7 builds. In many ways, this comes as a liberating step, allowing IMG staff to focus on individual products and platforms based on customer demand, roll those updates (per product) into the mix, and then move forward. For example, the final 178R4 DVD had 3 types of install packages per 4 platforms, with a dozen products. Adding the USB installs and versions to the mix, well over 150 different combinations needed verification after the master build. If any update was required, everything needed to be tested and verified again after a new build. By limiting the scope to a single product, and limiting the supported platforms, a more responsive and quicker cycle can be realized for requested features and capabilities.

Now back to the new features in the Windows 7/Vista 1.79 release. The new visual Themes option is a user-friendly approach to the customizable painting options dating back to the 178 Release 2. The general trend in the high-tech world has been to be more visual, and in adding this feature, the effort was made to show-off what customized painting can do to the keyboard display in the My-T-Soft family (and make it easy to change the theme quickly and easily). This allows more "modern" looking on-screen keyboard displays to be created, and gives the user more options over the "look and feel" of the keyboard display. Each Theme is contained in the new THEMES folder, and the cycle within the keyboard is controlled by the ThemeList entry in the Initialization file - more themes can be added, an existing theme can be modified, or a theme can be locked down. The feature is somewhat open ended, and we anticipate addressing any user feedback, and adding more themes going forward.

The Touch Panel is actually a separate piece that will be available on systems with touch capability (or brought up by user demand) to allow a handful of touch features and user-interaction options. The Touch Panel will always be on the right or left-hand side of the keyboard display based on screen real estate and keyboard window position. On systems with Multi-Touch capability, the touch panel will be shown when first run, and will default to the Gestures option. There is also a Multi-Touch option, along with a regular touchscreen option. Because each mode offers some different user-interface options, we simply decided to support them all. By selecting the mode, the user can interact with the keyboard window as best matches their needs and desires. When the Touch Panel is available, the user can simply select the mode best suited for the task. We believe in practice, the Gestures seems to be the most useful and aligns more with user expectations, so it was chosen as the default.

There are 4 buttons on the Touch Panel - Change Theme, Multi-Touch select, Gesture Select, and a green Clear/Dismiss/Recall button. The Change Theme button cycles through the available themes, and changes the Keyboard display theme based on the next theme in the list. You can quickly review all themes by stepping through each with the Change Theme button (a button on a rainbow background, the center of the Touch Panel).

The Gesture mode is indicated by a sweeping line over a hand icon - when lit, the Gesture mode is in use, and when darkened, the Gesture mode is off. The gestures are managed by the MultiTouch.DLL (available in the IMG Developer's Kit), and are assigned as followed: Pinch/Zoom - Size-Down/Size-Up Keyboard; Drag/Sweep (Pan) - Move/Fling Keyboard; 2 finger Rotate - Change Theme; 2 finger tap/Press and tap - right-click event. When the keyboard is swept away, the MultiTouch.DLL approach will limit it to the top or bottom of the display, and then let you sweep it off-screen to the right or left. By design, when swept off-screen, the green recall button will be visible, able to recall the keyboard back to the screen.

The Multi-Touch mode is indicated by 3 circles under the fingers of a hand icon (to indicate multiple touches) - when lit, the Multi-Touch mode is in use, and when darkened, the Multi-Touch mode is off. The key aspect of the Multi-Touch mode is to allow multiple touches to interact with the keyboard - this allows you to hold down the Shift or Control key and continue to type. While more in-line with the way a physical keyboard works, it seems better suited to specialty applications, but may also be a function of ergonomics and screen positioning (and user preference).

The green Clear/Dismiss/Recall button is a multi-purpose button. When in the Gestures or Multi-Touch Mode, a green button will clear the mode. In this regular touchscreen mode, flicks are supported, and controlled by options within Windows control panel (for processing flicks within the system), and by the MultiTouch.DLL which reacts to the flick events. By default, a diagonal flick will perform a minimize event, and the horizontal flicks will move the keyboard up/down or off-screen left/right. When the keyboard window is visible, in the regular touchscreen mode, a green button press will dismiss the keyboard window off-screen. When off-screen, another touch will recall the keyboard.

There are various options available with how the touch panel operates configurable via the Initialization file as documented in the User's Guide. Also, by renaming or removing the MultiTouch.DLL, these specialized touchscreen interaction features can simply be disabled. Furthermore, the MultiTouch.DLL source code is available within the IMG Developer's Kit, and customized actions or modified actions are possible for developers/integrators.

Also included with the 1.79 release is the Ctrl+Alt+Delete Touchscreen logon button. For system policy / domain logon situations where a Ctrl+Alt+Delete security option is enforced, this Logon Utility option allows for a large red Ctrl+Alt+Delete button to be displayed and will interact with the system (when properly configured) to bypass the security screen without the need for a physical keyboard and an actual Ctrl+Alt+Delete keystroke combination. This allows a touchscreen/pen interface to easily & quickly dismiss this screen and operate without a physical keyboard.

There are various other updates in the 1.79 release, but less visual, less impactful to many users, but interesting nonetheless. Special options including Parallax settings and KeyBlockTime options allow fine tuning for different types of touchscreen technologies. The parallax settings can handle visual offsets when the touchscreen surface is separated from the display surface, and the key block time allows for more sensitive input devices. The Region options allow different shapes, including the rounded corners on some of the themes. There is now an option for locking latching keys (Shift, Control, and Alt). Other "behind the scenes" updates include the Zip/Unzip library tools, the SetProcessDPIAware call to ensure proper operation on high-DPI (Dots Per Inch) displays, 64-bit accommodation for system interface components, compile preparation for 64-bit builds, and various other maintenance items.

All in all, the 1.79 release continues to build on the ever more stable and ever more popular foundation of the original 1.xx code base. For our customers that find this classic approach to a flexible on-screen keyboard ideal for their needs, this release brings them even more capabilities.

With the release of Windows 8 in late 2012, all while the 1.79 release was being finalized, it became clear that a distinct release for Windows 8 was required, so the 1.80 was established, but primarily focused on additional enhancements to the 1.79 release that made sense for Windows 8. The new Start Screen (ImmersiveLauncher class) (or the new Start Menu (once called Metro) Interface screens) essentially created a new desktop environment (treating the classic desktop as just another tile / option). In order for My-T-Soft to make sense, it needed to appear and be functional in the new environment. As it turns out, a few tricks with the manifest and a digitally code-signed executable allowed this operation, and although we played around with the docking options, we felt the already normal functionality in My-T-Soft was more conducive to operating within this new environment. The code-signing requirement is an interesting because of its pros and cons (Note: IMG has code-signed their releases for many years now). The positive side is the security and the level of trust provided to customers by seeing just who published the software they are running. The negative side is that it adds costs to performing certain types of functionality within the Windows operating system. From the technical standpoint, it does require IMG's software to run from specific locations (i.e. \Program Files).

Some notable updates in the 1.80 release are new Start Screen options in the My-T-Soft Logon Utilities. One can have My-T-Soft start with the Start Screen, and optionally go direct to the classic Desktop (Boot-to-Desktop), and/or start minimized, and/or bypass the opening splash screen. To accommodate various security and implementation scenarios, there are additional executables provided with the requestedExecutionLevel preset - asInvoker, highestAvailable, and requireAdministrator. These can be used to address UIPI (User Interface Privilege Isolation) issues in scenarios where a required application runs at a higher privilege than the actual user. Due to the user interface aspects of an onscreen keyboard, User Account Control options, and scenarios when a launched application is elevated, offering these options can resolve potential problems where the keyboard process (My-T-Soft) cannot type into the elevated program (which is not a desired result). Also, the IMG installer has been updated to operate without using the ZIP format, but rather use the IMG PKG format, which compresses a bit better than the old standard ZIP. This also allows for a bit more flexibility during installs, and brings all functions / options within the installation software. The IMG Smart Download is a small executable that grabs the current download map, then downloads the correct version to match the product selected for the current version of Windows. This streamlines the whole installation process, and allows for more flexibility as the number of customers running various versions of Windows proliferates.

The 1.80 version also updates My-T-Soft TS for Windows Server 2012 - this allows Remote Desktop Users options to run My-T-Soft from a server. Many customers using this have various type of terminals or external systems, and this update brings the most recent release features and capabilities to the Windows Server environment.

For customers, splitting up versions based on operating system support is different than in the past, so being aware of these changes and how they may affect ordering and support options is important. We strongly recommend all customers with any installed base to get on our Annual Maintenance programs so that when rolling out new systems with a different version of Windows, there is no need to go through an upgrade purchase. We anticipate a more dynamic set of options and release updates, and want to provide as seamless an experience as possible, but this is reserved for customers who are on one of these annual programs. This round of releases just continues the 2 decades of milestones, with some of the more interesting things still on the horizon.

Time display adds new capabilities to Build-A-Board Windows run-time
written August 1, 2012 by Kermit Komm
Category: Development Tags: Build-A-Board, Clock display, Time Display, Date Display, Windows run-time    #24
 
As an update for current customers, IMG has added an updating key label capability which allows a clock face, a time, or a date display on a key, updating based on the current system time. The external interface opens up other possibilities beyond just a time display, once again only limited by the needs and requirements of our customers. For example, other system status information, local, external, or remote data can be displayed to provide additional information to the user via a key or label. Another step along the roadmap, this capability is now available for this specific use. The implementation is very straightforward - an external DLL is used, and specified with simply syntax as the Key Label. Unlike a normal "static" display or state based display on a typical keyboard, this approach allows dynamic updates based on external events. In the provided update, there are 3 options available: a clock face, a text based time display, and text based date display. Various display options are available for these options via an Initialization (INI) settings file. For further information, the update is available here: Knowledgebase Item PU2011120670

Developer's kit utilities for Build-A-Board Linux Targets

Category: Development Tags: Linux, Build-A-Board, My-T-Soft Developer's Kit, tools, utilities    #13
 
Available now, Linux based utilities for basic external control for Linux based targets from Build-A-Board. Includes capabilities for:
Move Window
Save Position
Close
Minimize
Open (restore)
Typefile

These cover the basics of what developers or integrators want to accomplish when integrating the My-T-Soft on-screen virtual keyboards along with, or into, an application. By calling out externally, the ability to move, minimize, restore, and bring up new layouts (via the Typefile options, using the built-in CMD:NKBF (New KBF, i.e. New KeyBoard File)), a wide range of control and user-interface design possibilities are easily addressed.

The Typefile external utility allows a wide range of possibilities - it can actually type a file, but typically is used to trigger an internal command (such as New KBF - new keyboard layout). It has the ability to simply be accessed via the command line, or (if given a valid file name) to read and process the contents of the file.

Browser based app with side layouts and bottom based keyboard
written November 18, 2011 by Kermit Komm
Category: Development Tags: AppBar, MTSAppBar, Dock, MTSDock    #12
 
The IMG Developer's Kit has various examples and options, and one example shows off the AppBar shell interface that allows the default desktop size to be reduced automatically by an AppBar that can be positioned and sized at the top, bottom, or either side. (This acts somewhat like the taskbar - it reduces the area that a maximized window will fill on the desktop). This has been an example in the kit since 2007, and the capability goes back much further. But it adds an interesting resizing capability that is handled automatically by the system, and to people who do not know it exists, and who don't realize how simple and effective this can be for certain uses, it seems almost magical.

So when an OEM had to address a customer's need to work with a browser based solution, and needed custom boards, My-T-Soft® Build-A-Board came to mind. Once the requirements were specified, along with the need for several boards with 2 different orientations (side and bottom), the MTSAppBar (MTSAppBar from the IMG Developer's Kit) added the missing piece for building a comprehensive, effective interface. So with a few hours of tweaks, and changing the AppBar to size & position based on the selected layout, along with building layouts based on the customer's requirements, a simple, effective, and custom interface was created for the ruggedized system.

IMG will add this additional example to the MTSAppBar example in the Developer's Kit, and may provide some additional examples, as this capability provides some unique interface aspects - and so few people grasp the depth and infinite possibilities of My-T-Soft® Build-A-Board.

XP Embedded - a componentized operating system
written September 23, 2011 by Kermit Komm
Category: Development Tags: Build-A-Board, Macrobat, XP Embedded    #10
 
An interesting support item shows off the componentized aspect of XP Embedded and low level support of keystrokes within Macrobat (The Macro Batch Processor component of IMG's Build-A-Board). A large corporate customer rolling out a POS type system reported a software problem from within Windows caused by using the @ symbol via the Key Action. Here is the background:

In order to make the Key Action property within Build-A-Board as intuitive and user-friendly as possible, simply specifying the desired symbol is supported. For punctuation, such as the @ or % or # symbols, you can simply match the Key Label and Key Action, and everything works fine. However, when you get down to the actual emulation of the keystroke, you will find there is no single keystroke / keyboard scancode that can generate these symbols - a whole lot of action takes place within the keyboard driver to process and parse keyboard events so that the user-interface matches the physical keyboard, and indeed, you must be in the Shift state to generate certain characters, e.g. it really is Shift-2 at the keystroke level to generate the @ symbol. (Interested parties can read-up on TranslateMessage and the WM_CHAR message for the way some of this is handled within Windows). Flipping it around the other way, there are API calls such as VkKeyScan and MapVirtualKey that can query the underlying keyboard driver to take a character and figure out what keystrokes are required. And things work great - up until you build a version of the OS that doesn't have (or fully support) certain API calls - which is something you can do within a componentized operating system such as XP Embedded.

One solution (and probably the best) would be to rebuild the OS with the required components. As you get close to roll-out time, however, doing something that far back in the chain is generally looked at as a really bad choice. There is also the cause and effect aspect. The problem occurs when the user types the @ symbol keystroke on My-T-Soft, ergo the problem is with My-T-Soft - (regardless that My-T-Soft works fine everywhere else but on this specific version of XP Embedded).

So how to fix the problem? Sometimes it helps to redefine the problem, or run through the issue backwards, so here goes... Macrobat is the Key Action processing part of My-T-Soft, and it generates the virtual key events (and can also perform other actions). So when you pass it an @ symbol, it needs to figure out the keystrokes necessary to generate this via scancodes, and the Windows API MapVirtualKey can do so. The Shift state of these punctuation symbols was the common thread, so some combination of the XP Embedded OS, Macrobat, and the handling with the Windows API calls for these shifted punctuation characters was the problem. (In digging deeper, a whole separate sequence of code within Macrobat gets called to handle older DOS apps when a shifted character is revealed by MapVirtualKey, and various other Windows APIs are called to facilitate this management - our guess it isn't the keyboard APIs, but some of this support code - but without this code, other customers running this version would experience shift issues in DOS apps (which is still an issue for legacy systems - even this year (2011) we've had 1 customer want Windows 3.1 support for a DOS app (sometimes the real world is quite different than marketing hype might lead you to believe!))).

So could the whole situation simply be avoided? Yes - simply specify the Key Action to be the more detailed, totally un-user-friendly actual keystrokes - e.g. instead of using just the "@" symbol, specify "[Shift-Down]2[Shift-Up]". Now Macrobat will never branch into the problem area, and will operate as intended!

But is there any downside? In this situation, not really. The reason the @ symbol by itself is preferred is two-fold - easier for the human, and more portable. In this case, portability is not an issue - this is the OS, and as long as the user gets an @ symbol typed with they press the @ key, all is well. Since the keyboard layout is custom, and specific to this project (and could always be changed via Build-A-Board), changing a handful of keystrokes to be expanded and more specific is acceptable. It resolves the issue, and prevents potentially serious timetable issues if a more drastic fix were to be required. The flexibility of breaking apart the user interface and the Key Action is a crucial engineering aspect of the My-T-Soft® Build-A-Board System, and this is an example of the underlying design of the software. The use of a flexibile componentized OS resulted in a problem, but the flexibility of Build-A-Board quickly resolved the issue.

Chesapeake Public Schools standardize on IMG's The Magnifier

The Chesapeake Public School District in the state of Virginia has standardized on Innovation Management Groups' The Magnifier software program for all of its Windows based computers. It has purchased a District wide Enterprise License along with Annual Maintenance, which provides continuous updates and upgrades, allowing the district to roll the software out on its different Windows platforms and support new versions of Window based computers as they are purchased.

IMG's The Magnifier is the first truly affordable, full screen, magnifier for computers. It has been in use with low vision individuals for over 10 years. With recent updates to the software based on input from its user base of individuals, educators, and librarians, IMG has seen a marked increase in interest from school and library districts eager to make the software available to all of its constituents.

A major new feature of The Magnifier is a simple to use Menu Toolbar and "You Are Here" window that gives the user a few simple button choices and shows where the cursor is on the screen regardless of the scale of magnification. One of the button choices zero's out magnification so traditional users can work on the computer without ending the program. The next low vision user just sets their magnification needs and continues to work.

This new set of features has been embraced by schools and libraries because it virtually eliminates questions and support requirements from new or unsavy computer users while providing just the right amount of magnification each individual needs.

Innovation Management Group is the primary supplier of onscreen keyboard user interfaces and designer utilities for major automation, handheld, instrumentation, invehicle, kiosk, pen, rugged, tablet, touchscreen, ultra mobile, vehicle mount, voting, wearable, and whiteboard systems manufacturers, integrators, and users worlwide. IMG's products run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, on some of the most secure, advanced, and critical systems in the world.

With 3 additional plants installing IMG' s My-T-Soft on-screen keyboard utilities, H.J. Heinz continues its roll-out and standardization on IMG's highly respected My-T-Soft program.

The My-T-Soft on-screen keyboard utility is considered by most major automation, industrial, rugged, tablet, touchscreen, and wearable systems manufacturers to be the standard in on-screen keyboard utilities. Written at the operating system level (not as a high level application), it has a repuation for being a highly stable, reliable, and versatile utility, fully integratable into any application environment via IMG's SDK Developers Integration Kit.

Enabling tools... Real world story of IMG's technology
written September 9, 2011 by Kermit Komm
Category: Development Tags: OnScreen, WordComplete, CrossScanner, Assistive Technology    #7
 
OnScreen is the Assistive Technology version in the My-T-Soft® Family of on-screen virtual keyboards.

What this means is there are numerous specialty add-ons suggested by end-users, schools, therapists, and assistive technology specialists. In practice, it makes the onscreen keyboard the primary text input tool for users that cannot use a standard mouse or physical keyboard.

In the upcoming 1.79, and automatic highlight/speak feature was requested by an occupational therapist working with an OnScreen user. Here is the story:

The subject has cerebral palsy and has just started high school. I started working with him as a toddler, but of course he was not toddling around. He had a beautiful smile and we started working to get him to use his hands to play. Unfortunately he had very little success doing this and so when we came across the program CrossScanner, he was able to independently access a computer. WOW!!! (CrossScanner (designed by RJ Cooper, developed by IMG) is a user access tool created so a single switch can completely control all functions on a PC)
He now can whip through his computer to find the weather, play his favorite music, do research for school projects, and send e-mails to friends and family. He has plans to go to college and establish a company with his father to design software. When he recently received a new powered wheelchair with the capability of adding a mouse mover unit he and his family went for it, and now he has successfully learned how to use it. So that is why we are so excited that when using OnScreen with the WordComplete option with the mouse mover, there is now a way for the words to be read automatically (he also has some visual limitations and so is more of an auditory "reader" and that is why having the words read outloud automatically is very important for him). Everyone is amazed and so grateful, and I do think this will be quite a plus for other OnScreen users.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

The features, options, and depth of the My-T-Soft® family of software is sometimes lost when quickly categorizing it as an onscreen keyboard. Luckily our customers and people who use it everyday are well aware of its capabilities.

My-T-Soft® 1.79 to incorporate new Touch Panel
written August 17, 2011 by Kermit Komm
Category: Development Tags: multitouch, gestures, flicks, touch panel    #6
 
With Windows Vista and Windows 7 supporting multitouch touchscreen hardware, and providing various interfaces (multitouch, gestures, flicks, etc.), it made sense to find a way to support all interfaces while allowing full access to the My-T-Soft Family software, which includes IMG's My-T-Pen, My-T-Soft, My-T-Touch and Build-A-Board Designer Tool) brand names. The solution is the new Touch Panel, available in the upcoming Version 1.79.

The obvious selection approach was to use a "Touch to Select" approach, but with 11 different individually selectable panels, there was no definitive spot available to use, so a new, side-mounted, selectable Touch Panel was created. This has 4 selections available - change theme, Multi-Touch, Gestures, and Normal. The several interfaces, in order to be as flexible as possible, are implemented in the new MultiTouchDLL (source code available in the IMG Developer's Kit).

The Normal operation supports the Tablet type Flicks - which can have up to 8 options (compass points and mid-compass points (diagonals)). There are 2 modes built in, with the default being a "move" action along the compass points, and any diagonal being a minimize action. This was deemed the most useful in usability testing. Because of the touch interface at the Operating System level, these are available along with the normal touchscreen interface. Being implemented at the DLL level, a Windows developer could implement their own functionality using the MultiTouchDLL source code within the IMG Developer's Kit.

The Multi-touch operation mode when selected supports multiple inputs on the keyboard panel, with the most useful being the touch & hold Shift/Control/Alt key support, more reminiscent of a physical keyboard than previously possible using older touchscreen technology (i.e. NOT multi-touch). This can easily be turned on and off using the new Touch Panel.

The funnest interface is the Gestures operation mode (default). This allows normal typing operation, but also incorporates Zoom (Pinch & stretch) to size the keyboard, and a unique implementation of the panning operation so the keyboard can be moved or "thrown" off the screen when not needed (a portion of the Touch Panel remains visible so the keyboard can be accessed immediately when needed - during development, it was quickly realized that gesturing the keyboard away was useful for some things, but having it fly away and disappear from sight, being totally inaccessible was NOT a good end-point. Fun to do, but not truly useful - but once again, the new Touch Panel offered the best and most flexible solution). The dual-finger Rotate gesture was tied back into the Themes, so it will change the theme of the keyboard when the rotate gesture is used.

The Themes is incorporated as an easy way to view different approaches to the keyboard "view", and built-in themes allow a quick way to see and select a visually appealing theme. Ever since Release 2, there were ways for end-users to change the look of the keys, but due to its complexity, most users never even realized this. So we realized we needed to show off this capability in as straightforward a manner as possible, so a quick Theme change does the trick. There are various views built-in, and we anticipate adding more over time, but the key is it readily shows the concept & ease at which a new "look" can be implemented.

With many customers still remaining in XP, and running older hardware that is not multi-touch ready, there has not been a great demand for the multi-touch capability, but it will now be available in the next maintenance update for 1.78 users.
