Hello
Thought I'd ask this question before I go try to hire a programmer or ????

I would like to put  a second monitor on a desktop computer and have that monitor be a TouchScreen.   I would like to use that TouchScreen as a second keyboard.

On the TouchScreen there would be a menu selection of different "Phrases" and when each phrase is touched, it enters that phrase into whatever program is open on the computer at the time.

Whether it's WORD, IE, QUICKBOOKS, ??  the program the user is operating in would not loose focus when the TouchScreen is pressed.   But the corresponding text phrase would be typed into that program (WORD, IE, QuickBooks)

Does that make sense?

Phrase Express may do what you are after:

It is basically the Word autocorrect and spell check, predictive text etc for all applications. This will be quicker than a phrase keyboard as you simply setup abbreviations. For example type "m$" and the system will expand it to "Microsoft", or "hfat" can expand into "Hello my name is Inigio Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die". Word has this feature but this software basically sits in the system tray and is accessible to all apps.

I think this may be the simplest option and easier to use than a second monitor setup (and cheaper).
