Aml Maple has a new kind of view on keyboard layout indicators: simple, modern, flexible. It indicates the active layout being currently used (the language you are typing at this particular moment). It is always in front of you, exactly at the place you are typing! A usage is very simple. For example, you can configure the red cursor for English and the blue cursor one for French (or any other). Once you change your language layout, cursor color will change accordingly.

Key features:

  • It's easy to find: just look at the typing place or mouse cursor;
  • It's easy to understand: current layout can be indicated with colored symbols and/or national flag icon;
  • It's easy to use: indicator is compatible with absolutely most of the programs: both windowed and console;
  • It's easy to correct text: select incorrect text, press hotkey — receive text in correct keyboard layout.

The program downloaded and was installed easily enough. It was registered using the protocol set out in the README file. I installed it once not allowing it to start up with Windows. I could not bring up a text page so I completely uninstalled it, reinstalled it, and reregistered it.

I still cannot open it to where it shows a text page. Yet, an American flag shows beside the cursor regardless of where I point cursor when it is in any type of text box. The American flag comes from the setup instructions presented when the program was installing.

For me I find the constant addition of two letters to the right of the cursor to be an unbearable distraction, detracting from the whole composition process and spelling completely. No go for me.

This program seems fairly useless. It fits such a specialty need, people who are energetic enough to learn multiple languages but too lazy to look down at the corner of their screen to see which set they are in.

For those who are puzzled as to what the advantage of such a program is, or can't imagine who'd want to use it: as a bilingual person, I constantly have to switch keyboards between English and Spanish - and although Windows shows the language on the task bar, I'm always getting caught out when I try to get an accented character (most of the characters on the keyboards are the same for both languages, but not all) and it doesn't work (because I'm using the English keyboard but hadn't noticed so far), or a common occurrence is to switch to my e-mail program or fill in online forms and expect to get an @, instead of which I get nothing following by an umlaut (¨) when I realise what's happened, switch keyboards and press the @ key again. Typing in my e-mail address takes twice as long, as I have to backtrack and erase that wretched umlaut. For that alone, such a program is certainly worth it for me, if it works properly. Constantly having to check the task bar is not practical (and it's not always visible, anyway).

Who writes letters in two languages at the same time, the train of thought is different and confusing as well. Not a very useful software for most of us.

I thought this might me quite useful as I write quite a number of documents in both English and German and had hoped that it would have a function to remap the keyboard layout to whatever language you are using but as far as I can see it doesn't it only tells you what language you are using, Windows does this by putting a language icon on the taskbar anyway so apart from changing the colour of the cursor, I don't see much point in having this program .. I'll pass.

People who live or work in countries where more than one language is common (like Canada, Europe) would find this useful. Also, linguists, translaters, etc. My second language isn't normally written so I don't need this, and the few times I need alternative characters such as in Spanish, I can use another program for this that maps the font characters. (Sorry, I can't remember the name but there are probably several such available.)

Therese, just curious ... what language is not normally written?

Reply   |   Comment by Bob  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Bob, So many! It would be hard to type Egyptian hieroglyphics, for one. There's also Klingon, which many people can read but can't spell.

Reply   |   Comment by Some Guy  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Bob, in my case, American Sign Language. There's Sign Writing, but I haven't learned it. There might even be a font by now.

Some Guy, LOL I bet people can more easily spell Klingon than speak it!

This may be useful for someone that is constantly typing documents in various languages and documents that contain a mixture of languages. Otherwise I don't see any need for this feature.

I guess it's useful if you keep swapping languages when you're typing, I had to read the info on their website several times to make sense of it.

Re "is compatible with absolutely most of the programs" in the description - I would like an idea of what it works with, is it global or just selected programs, at least confirmation on things like Office, Browsers, Email clients, etc. before I can decide whether it's worth downloading.

Website has no contact details or company location, personally, I don't like dealing with companies who keep where they are hidden, for one thing, you don't know what privacy laws they are subject to.

What is the appeal of this? I don't understand what it does or why... am I the only one confused here?

Trinity Reynolds, i am totally clueless as well im sure there is a guru out there that can explain it to us

Your Teacher, wow thanks, an animated gif is worth a thousand words. i too, had NO idea what it was that was being offered today until seeing this animated gif.

Trinity Reynolds, I agree, in the days when windows would always install USA keyboard by default unless you jumped through several hoops during installation to remove USA keyboard type it would by default show a two letter keyboard layout identifier icon in the systray area which let us know what layout was currently in operation, the only times that would be unviewable is when the task bar was not always on top and was overlaid, or it was auto-hidden or we are in full screen video, dos full screen or a full screen game modes, don't the modern windows do at least that?
Personally the only keyboard layout addition I could use is something that auto-switches layout depending upon which HID keyboard is in use. i.e. laptop keyboard is UK layout, but bluetooth keyboard is USA layout.
As far as I know there is no way to make at least Vista and before operating systems use a per keyboard encoding, unsure about windows 7 and newer... That would be an enhancement to what microsoft already provides I can't see this as an enhancement at all.

Your Teacher, I see. Thanks for the info! This seems like it fits a very niche need. If this were Shark Tank, I'd be out!

Your Teacher,

That's astonishingly impressive. Unfortunately, to take advantage of this one would need to be bilingual, trilingual, or multilingual.
