Was learning Thai. But I did not have any Thai keyboard.
So I developed my own virtual Thai keyboard. I think this one is more powerful than some other on-line Java keyboards: it can work off-line and can type directly in the current application without copying and pasting. Besides it can work directly with most softwares like Word or even with MSN MESSENGER.
I made it available at:
Virtual Thai Keyboard

Just in case some of you already tried to download the keypad. There was a problem with the file on the server (unable to open it). It's fixed now and working well.

I downloaded all 3 zips and they work for me okay. One question though .... if I add words to the Pout-Thai dictionary, how do I back them up when it comes to formatting my hdd?
thanksif you can't find the needle, burn the haystack

You may find the dictionary in your Windows folder. It's an access database called 'Thai.mdb'
In the next version i will try to add some new features to manage this dictionary more easily.
Thank you for having confirmed you can download the files,

'VirtualThaiKeypad is dead'! Long life to 'uniKode for Thai' !
Both website and softwares have been updated.
Thai numbers have been added to the virtual Thai keyboard.
Have a look at :
uniKode for Thai

Just for information:
More than 150 persons have already downloaded the virtual Thai keyboard.
Let's check some other free solutions:
- Java-based virtual keyboards (like Puttipan's one, anice one by the way): easy to use, no installation required but cannot work off-line and need a boring copy-paste.
- Microsoft On-screen keyboard Office Addon: easy to use, works directly with Word, but it works only with Office (not with MSN or other softwares) and you have to install the Thai language support first
- In your windows folder: probably C:\WINDOWS\system32\osk.exe, you would find a powerful virtual keyboard which work directly with other softwares. But it's a small one, besides you it has the same layout as a real keyboard (not easy for beginners) and if you want to use it for Thai, Thai support is required...
- Thai Virtual Keyboard: need language support (same comment as for OSK)
- Click'N Type : powerfull too, but not dedicated especially to Thai language, need probably the language support.
- Thai language support: free, youmay use your western keyboard, but you may take some time before memorizing all keys... but many people can do it (but not me, too kikiat maybe)
(if you know some other free solutions, please post in this thread!)
Why choosing uniKode for Thai ?
- no language-support installation required
- easy to use, and works directly with most XP softwares
- can work off-line
Con (yes, there are some unfortunately ):
- Dotnet library required (but will let you use many other softwares if not already installed)
- you have to install the software (it's not a website indeed)
I hope people using uniKode are satisfied with it.
