International KeyBoard Description
International KeyBoard is a small-sized tool that enables you to type special European diacritics with your normal keyboard, by using specific rules.
The upside of portability
You are not required to go through the installation process, as this product is portable. Consequently, the Windows registry is not going to be updated with new entries, unless your prior approval.
Another important aspect is that it is possible to run International KeyBoard on any PC you have access to, by simply moving the program files to a SUB thumb drive and clicking the EXE.
This utility is quite non-obtrusive, as it goes in the system tray from the first launch. It is possible to interact with it through a small-sized context menu, and clicking the systray icon will bring up the main window.
Elements you can add and customize some hotkeys
It encloses a list of all the diacritics, math symbols, punctuation and other special characters you can use, so that you can easily view how to create the item that interests you without changing the keyboard’s language.
Aside from that, you should know it is possible to enable or disable sound, activate the program, set it up to always start at Windows launch, and assign text to function and Unicode keys. No other noteworthy options are included.
Conclusion and performance
International KeyBoard does not require a large amount of CPU and memory in order to function fully, while the response time is quite good. The interface is minimal and suitable to all users, and our tests did not reveal any crashes or hangs.
Overall, it is safe to say that this is a simple, yet useful piece of software which aids people in writing special symbols, characters and diacritics without needing to change their keyboard language.
