The original product developed in 1992 was My-T-Mouse - "My Typing Mouse". As time went by and the pen and touchscreen interfaces became more popular, we were questioned if our "Mouse" product worked with these devices - My-T-Pen and My-T-Touch were born. To address other virtual pointing device and technologies, My-T-Soft ("My Typing Software") was created - the name with no reference to any pointing device. Currently, My-T-Pen / My-T-Touch / and My-T-Soft (and numerous other private label versions) contain the same features, and are aimed at the commercial / industrial world. My-T-Mouse is for the home mouse / trackball user. OnScreen is the name for the Assistive Technology version of My-T-Soft (originally released as My-T-Soft AT).
As a software based virtual keyboard, our customers have requirements that address a wide-range of uses. Stop for a minute, and think about all the places in the world that have physical keyboards, keypads, or buttons. Then imagine all the flexilbility that a pure software implementation provides. Then realize that as individuals, specific needs and requirements can change for different applications. Finally add-in business and commercial aspects of creating an economically viable technological solution, and hopefully you can begin to appreciate why there are so many options.
For Windows, the 2 main options are My-T-Soft Professional and My-T-Soft Basic. My-T-Soft Professional contains both the original capabilities of the software as well as the Build-A-Board Run-time customization capabilities, while My-T-Soft Basic can only run Build-A-Board created layouts. If you only are going to run custom layouts, the Build-A-Board run-time licensing options or My-T-Soft Basic is all you need. If you need system logon and legacy capabilities, along with a full featured user interface/keyboard, then My-T-Soft Professional is what you want.
