Sent to you by K3 via Google Reader: Integrating virtual keyboards in
Google search via The Official Google Blog by A Googler on 4/29/10
You’ve spilled coffee on your keyboard. The a, e, i, o, u, and r keys
have stopped working. Now try to search Google for the nearest computer
repair shop. The pain of typing on this broken keyboard is similar to
what many people searching in non-English languages feel when trying to
type today. Typing searches on keyboards not designed for your
languages can be frustrating, even impossible.
Our user research has shown that many people are more comfortable
formulating search queries in their own language but have difficulty
typing these queries into Google. (Try typing नमस्ते on a keyboard with
English letters.) To overcome the difficulty they face in typing in
their local language scripts, some people have resorted to copying and
pasting from other sites and from online translation tools. But there’s
an easier way — a virtual, or “on-screen” keyboard, lets you type
directly in your local language script in an easy and consistent
manner, no matter where you are or what computer you’re using.
Virtual keyboards let people type directly in their local language
script and don't require any additional software.
Last year, to make text input easy for people across the globe, we
introduced a virtual keyboard API through code.google.com. This allowed
developers to enable virtual keyboards on any text field or text area
in their webpages. Today, we are taking this effort one step further by
integrating virtual keyboards into Google search in 35 languages.

term is [armenia])
If you use Google search in one of the languages listed below, you’ll
see a small keyboard icon show up next to the search field, on both the
Google homepage and search results page. Clicking on that keyboard icon
brings up a virtual keyboard in your language. You can input text by
either clicking on the on-screen keyboard or pressing the corresponding
You can find out more information on how to use the virtual keyboard in
our help article. If you use Google in a language not listed below and
feel that your language will benefit from a virtual keyboard, let us
know by voting for your language. We hope virtual keyboards help you
find information more easily — especially those of you who
speak/type/read in non-Latin scripts.
