KeyCastOW – Visualize on-screen Windows key pressing

Some Mac OS users may know something about KeyCastr - an open-source, real-time keystroke displaying application, which can be used to assist recording a variety of demonstration videos. However, no software like KeyCastr could satisfy us ideally (including Carnac) on Windows, until the appearance of KeyCastOW (short for KeyCast On Windows), developed by Brook Hong from China.

KeyCastOW is a tiny and practical keystroke visualizer. Through this software, user's any actions on keyboard and mouse will be displayed on the screen in real time. What's more, KeyCastOW is capable of accurately displaying your every keystroke/mouse click operation without delay. Besides, it allows you to customize the display's color, transparency, delay, special effects, etc.
