If you are asking this question, there is a good chance you don't - however, numerous companies around the world are taking advantage of the advanced human interface that allows interaction with a computer from one interface device.

With the advent of voice-recognition enabling dictation for extended text entry, the on-screen keyboard becomes an integral part of advanced systems. If you are a touch-typist and use your keyboard exclusively for word processing, you may never need an on-screen keyboard. However, this is only one of thousands upon thousands of uses for computers.
