Is there any software like Keycast (Mac)?

It shows what keys we have pressed for demonstration purpose. my requirements

  • The keys we pressed should be shown on the top of the screen irrespective of the window we are on
  • Able to toggle the app behavior like setting on or off
  • Thanks, now it just lacks the price tag :) Must it be free – or how much would you be willing to spend if there is no free app?

  • If somebody charges for this kind of app it would be a pretty bad strategy.

You can use Screenkey.

For terminal, you can try showkey but it prints to Standard output only.
