Testimonials

Justice Frangipane

"KeyPress does a great job of providing me with all the visual bells and whistles I could want for when I type on my computer. It does text expansion which works great and also it doesn't lag when I'm typing, so if my computer is slow, I can just type and it will catch up, but I don't have to wait for it!"

"I have tried several similar programs, because sometimes I record tutorial videos and I need to display key strokes. Today I discovered this one. This is by far the most beautiful one! I really like the visual style and sound. Thank you for your hard work"

About Us

Justice Frangipane {marketing}

I am really excited to be working with Marius and on KeyPress OSD. It's one of the coolest programs I've seen and one of the only ones that I keep running constantly on my computer. I love all the clicks and beeps it makes and how easy it is to type in small type fields without annoyance. Due to a recently broken neck this is a huge blessing, as my neck mobility restrains me from easily looking at the bottom of the screen. What a difference this makes. 

Marius Șucan {developer}

I am the programmer of KeyPres OSD. I live in Romania. I am a digital artist. I developed it for people like me, with poor eye sight or low vision. It is meant to aid desktop computer usage. It is especially useful while chatting or for occasional typing. The user no longer has to squint at the screen or zoom in the entire screen to see what s/he wrote in every text field.
