TykeType! is a free, open-source application I created for my toddler to type at the computer keyboard. The app is very minimal, though it does have a few features (like automatically separating numbers from letters) that make reading text aloud easier. You can see a quick demonstration video below.
TykeType! is built for Mac OSX and uses openFrameworks, an open-source toolkit for creative coding. You’re invited to download the application (and all source code) here. The software and code are free for non-commercial purposes, and are provided without any support.
