Qt Virtual Keyboard Updated with Handwriting Recognition
We are proud to present the new release of Qt Virtual Keyboard with Hand Writing Recognition (HWR), performance improvements, Nuance T9 Write integration, and support for Traditional Chinese language!
Qt Virtual Keyboard is now updated with new features and versioning scheme. As part of the recent licensing change announcement, the formerly commercial-only feature, the Qt Virtual Keyboard is now available also with GPLv3 license for open-source users, in addition to commercial Qt licensees. We released a technology preview of Qt Virtual Keyboard 2.0 a while back, and have now been improving it based on the feedback received. We have also adapted a new version numbering scheme: the Qt Virtual Keyboard now follows Qt versions. With the nupcoming Qt 5.6, Virtual Keyboard is still packaged only to the commercial installers, open source users need to get it from the repository. From Qt 5.7 onwards, Qt Virtual Keyboard is also included in the open source installers.
Qt Virtual Keyboard is a fully comprehensive out-of-the-box input solution. The most important new features of the Qt Virtual Keyboard include:
- A reference implementation of handwrite input method with Lipi toolkit alphabetic + numeric recognizer integration (English)
- Performance optimizations for Lipi toolkit
- Accelerated processing of HWR recognition results
- Full screen HWR mode (on-top writing)
- Nuance T9 Write HWR integration
- Word reselect for Hunspell word prediction
- Support for runtime language switching (from the application)
- Traditional Chinese keyboard layout
