ASETNIOP Plays All Your Favorite Classical Hits

One of the reasons why ASETNIOP has so much potential as a keyboard replacement is that it can be used on any device that has at least ten buttons (keyboards, sensor-equipped gloves, etc.) or any device that can be configured to have ten buttons (touchscreens, gesture-recognition devices, etc.).  The most recent addition to the family of available platforms is the piano.  If you’ve got your computer set up to receive MIDI input from a piano/synthesizer, you can use ASETNIOP to jot down song lyrics or messages or anything else without having to dedicate desk space to a QWERTY keyboard and make the cumbersome switch back and forth between the two.

In order to run ASETNIOP through your browser, you’ll need the jazz plugin, which can be found here and should work with any major browser.

To give it a try, you can make your way through the tutorial, or if you’re already familiar with how ASETNIOP works, you can jump right in with the basic text editor.

To show what’s possible, here’s a video of the method in action:

ASETNIOP keyboard text editor

The prototype keyboard version has been updated to include some basic text editing capabilities including the following:

1.  You can use the mouse to move the cursor – just point and click where you’d like to go.

2.  You can select and edit text (cut, copy, paste, overwrite) with the Ctrl-X, Ctrl-C, and Ctrl-V commands.  You can use Ctrl-C to copy text OUT of the ASETNIOP text editor (to paste into other applications) but you cannot paste text INTO the editor…yet.

3.  A few symbols that are useful for coding have been added to the base English layout, including { and } and = and + and & and | – just press the semicolon (right ring and pinky finger) and hold to see the options – use the shift to get + and |.

A number of changes are forthcoming, including a new layout for the keyboard graphic that’s not based off the ipad design (see below) and there will be a separate “options” menu to open where you can select the language, your keyboard configuration (QWERTY, AZERTY, etc.), layout, color scheme, and a few new items having to do with the autofill and autocorrect configurations.  Please report bugs or requests!
