"We have developed this in-house from the ground up. The objective of the two (as well as of other keyboard technologies) is the same – to make typing easier. But we do not know any other technology prior to Fleksy that actually delivers this experience and is downloadable."-Ioannis Verdelis, co-creator
Fleksy for iOS is an amazing virtual keyboard that was created as a QWERTY keyboard for the visually impaired. As the video below shows, Fleksy can unscramble misspelled words
in a heartbeat and uses swipe gestures to delete words, add punctuation or to add a space. The keyboard is so intuitive that you can type without the keys on the screen and still have a perfect typing experience thanks to autocorrect.
BlindType originally sold its initial idea to Google as a proof-of-concept. Fleksy takes the concept and turns it into a full-bodied technology. Now focusing on iOS at first with Fleksy, the plan is to eventually offer the virtual QWERTY for Android and Windows Phone. And while the initial idea was to create a QWERTY for those with trouble seeing clearly, Fleksy is designed for all typists.
Currently, the keyboard is a free download available on iTunes.
