Mouse Recorder Pro 2 is an excellent choice for such tasks. Don't let the name fool you, it's free! It's able to record keystrokes and mouse movement, offers editing templates to (for example) quickly remove mouse input while leaving key events, which is optimal for your case. Luckily it has an editor built-in as well, if you need to change anything by hand (...

The freeware utility ShowOff should meet your requirements. The key difference from the other tools you mentioned is that only the most recent keypress (or key combo) is displayed. By default a key is displayed for 1 second but this is configurable. To represent holding down a key in your gaming scenario set the timetoshow parameter to greater than length ...

I would like to test ... Being a Test Manager I'd say you don't need a single product but many products in order to test whether your anti-keylogger works well with any of them and not only with a single one. Other than that, it seems there's no need to find out the most suitable one, since they are only used for the purpose of being detected. Any other ...

It’s a small AutoHotKey script. Optionally, you can read the guide for ...

Though it's not working via Unicode Sequences as you describe, I'd strongly recommend wincompose: it uses the same compose sequences as there are available natively on Linux, and they are much more intuitive. What's available you can look up in the text file /usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose on your Linux machine – or via a GUI (including filtering ...

AutoHotkey is the perfect program for this: https://autohotkey.com/download/ The script for this in AutoHotkey would be something like: ^j:: Send, %clipboard% Return When this script is running, hitting CTRL+j would retype the contents of your keyboard wherever you are. I don't think I can give you exact instructions, there are a lot of guides out ...

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

They have a free trial version available; the full version can be obtained for ~USD 1. Note for other readers: ...

Definitely a case for Hacker's Keyboard: Hacker's Keyboard (source: Google Play; click images for larger variants) I'm using this on my tablets, and it's pretty convenient. Highly configurable as well. And especially useful with terminal apps (e.g. administrating a server via SSH), as it also offers all the special keys. Not to forget it also supports a ...

On newer Linuxes (since around 2.4.x), there are different character devices in /dev/input for every user input source: /dev/input/by-id: total 0 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 120 Jul 18 09:55 . drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 280 Jul 18 09:55 .. lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Jul 18 09:55 usb-VMware_VMware_Virtual_USB_Mouse-event-mouse -> ../event3 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root ...

Linux can support this under X Win as in this article by using MPX with many of the items I found talking specifically about ArchLinux but many applications do not support it well.

Finally a solution exists, its name is AutoHotkey. I wrote myself an AutoHotkey script like below. You have just to release Ctrl (and on US keyboard layouts or on numpads also Shift) after pressing "u" and finally press Ctrl again to insert the character: ^+u:: SendInput, u Input, num, V L5,{LControl}{RControl} SetFormat, IntegerFast, Hex ...

TL;DR: afaik there is still no app, but open source backends now exist, so maybe it is easy to wrap it in a keyboard application I've started to build a prototype. About 5 years ago I discovered voice typing by google and enjoyed it very much. Then I banned google from my phone and had since to arrange without voice typing. Back then there weren't any open ...

According to http://ipad-ssm.net/archives/211 there's an option to turn on the 10 key instead of having to use your 55 key. It's tricky to find this on your own though. To do this, you need to have the "Split Keyboard" option on, found in Settings -> General -> Keyboard Proceed to click on "International Keyboards" and add a new keyboard. You can select the ...

AutoHotkey. It let's you record key presses, and then you can see what the name for that specific key is, and bind to it with an AutoHotkey script. I used to do this several years back.

Windows support this for as long as I remember, but you need to enable it in registry with: reg add "HKCU\Control Panel\Input Method" /v EnableHexNumpad /t REG_SZ /d 1 Then you can type µ with Alt + + + 0 0 b 5 ሴ with Alt + + + 1 2 3 4 etc.

Although it's not a free program, you may find that Macro Express will fit your requirements specific to the mouse. From the help page within the program: Relative to Last Position This option instructs the macro to move the mouse cursor relative to the last position of the cursor. In this case do not input new coordinates, just the number of ...

I highly recommend AutoHotkey. It's mainly famous for allowing you to set up hotkeys to do things, but there's nothing stopping you from using it to assign a do-nothing operation to a key. You can assign context-sensitive hotkeys, so the special behavior only affects certain programs. For example, you could assign the apostrophe to do nothing when Word is ...

FOUND IT! Keynav: Retire your mouse (C, X11) Keynav is a piece of an on-going experiment to make pointer-driven interfaces easier and faster for users to operate. It lets you move the pointer quickly to most points on the screen with only a few key strokes. But what about the Mac? XEasyMotion: Using keyboard control mouse on MacOS ( OS X ), like keynav. ...

The best solution I've found to date comes from Will Stern at LearnCode.Academy . He uses an Ergodox EZ keyboard, which allows for multiple layers (ie when you hold down a certain key it activates an entirely different keymap). It also has a "Hyper" key that acts as Ctrl+Cmd+Alt+Shift, which makes it easy to set up shortcuts that won't collide with other pre-...

You could try TypOmeter which claims to do what you want (get type "stats" as you type) and includes "Words per minute" as said in the software description. Seems mature and with a lot of features, including skins.

I like 'Hacker's Keyboard' Play store, github. QWERTY Number row Vibration on keypress is configurable - you can even set vibrate duration. You can even play with things like key height in the settings.
