Google Virtual Keyboard for Search

Using a QWERTY keyboard to type search terms in some foreign languages can be difficult. To alleviate this problem, Google has just launched a virtual keyboard for search. The virtual keyboard for search is available for 35 languages supported by Google. To launch the virtual keyboard, simply click the keyboard icon that appears at the end of the search box when you're searching in one of the 35 supported languages.

Applications for Education
The Google virtual keyboard for search could be useful for students who are trying to conduct research on topics that may be written primarily in a foreign language. The virtual keyboard for search could also be useful for ELL students.
