Google Input Tools 3.8.1.0

A useful extension that allows you to use multiple languages for entering text on the websites that you visit by selecting the keyboard from the address bar button
Google Input Tools is an extension for the Chrome browser that lets you type in a selected language, with special characters and all, without having to add it to the Windows operating system.

The extension is easy to install and creates a new icon in the interface of the browser. When you click it, you open a drop-down menu and it’s from there that you get to access its features and switch between the desired languages.

Adding or removing languages is done from the options section and is something you can do in one or two clicks. Google Input Tools offers you a very large list of languages to choose from which makes its potential user base all that much larger.

In order to insert content, Google Input Tools offers you three methods. The first one, allows you to type in text using your keyboard. While this method is used, the extension displays an on screen keyboard as well, which shows you the layout of the keys so you know which one is which. It goes without saying that you are able to insert text using the digital one by clicking its keys.

The second way of adding text is similar to the first one but only applies to some languages and as you type, it suggests possible words. Depending on how far along you are when typing, the suggestions vary in number and you might end up with a fairly large list to choose from. Not that that’s something bad, it shows you that a considerable amount of work has been put into creating Google Input Tools.

The third and probably the best one, involves the use of a pencil tool. With this method you draw the letter you want to insert into the text field or write the entire word. The only bad thing about this is that you can’t resize the writing window, which means that the words have to be fairly short.

In closing, Google Input Tools truly offers you a very easy and very practical way of writing in any language you need.
