Newsco Software Ltd to offer My-T-Soft® in its News Software Solutions


CHATSWORTH, CA. June 15, 2005 -- IMG, the primary supplier of onscreen keyboards, human machine interface designer tools, and pointing device enhancement utilities announced today that its software is being offered by Newsco Software Ltd. Newsco Software becomes the latest in a series of software developers to offer IMG’s My-T-Soft product with its systems.

My-T-Soft (My-Typing-Soft Keyboard) offers more than 200 programmable U.S. and international 3D onscreen keyboards and panels, can import custom panels from IMG’s Build-A-Board Keyboard Designer Tool, and is fully integrateable into a clients hardware / software platform via IMG’s Developers Kit. The main focus of the product is to integrate a low level user interface into any pen, tablet, or touchscreen based systems or applications as an alternative to the physical keyboard or membrane panel. It is ideal for use in environments such as automation, handheld, instrumentation, kiosks, medical, military, rugged, whiteboards, or other extremely clean, dirty, or hazardous interactive user environments. A thin client version for Citrix / MS Terminal Server is available.

The latest release of My-T-Soft provides full support for Windows 98 thru Vista, including XP Embedded platforms. Prior releases required different products for different Windows versions. This update allows IMG's OEMs and VARs to integrate a single product into their systems, regardless of the Windows platform they choose.

"My-T-Soft provides the perfect complement to Newsco’s products. Being written at the Windows Kernel level, unlike onscreen user interfaces developed in a database, browser, active-x, java, or high-level tools such as Visual Basic, it offers complete control over all Windows functions and applications including network logon, passwords, user input, and ID authentication, without conflicts with the operating system, other applications, or the hardware. It’s easy to show or hide the keyboards and unlike physical keyboards or membrane panels, is not subject to vandalism or accidental damage." said Jerry Hussong, IMG’s vice president of sales and marketing.

The IMG My-T-Soft, Touch, Pen, and OnScreen product line offers clients the ability to use pre-built layouts or create their own, via IMG’s Build-A-Board Keyboard Designer Tool, and present the user with only the necessary interaction. Keys and Panels can be added or removed from the user interface thereby limiting the user input and options in accordance with the clients needs. The products also works with any serial, usb, or PS/2 pointing device, making them equally useful in a wide variety of non pen, tablet, or touchscreen based environments.

My-T-Soft retails for $99.95. Private label, OEM, and custom versions are available. Additional information is at
