How to Enable the On-Screen Keyboard in macOS Sierra

Oyetoke Tobi - Sunday, December 04, 2016

Do you know that you can view and use the On-Screen Keyboard on macOS Sierra? Just like the traditional on-screen keyboard on Windows 10. This can be very useful when your Mac keyboard is faulty or has a broken key. Or may be you want to use the on-screen keyboard as an accessibility feature like an easy way to add emoji to your messages. 

However, Apple moved this feature in macOS Sierra, which makes it a little hard in enabling it. So we’ll have to take some steps in order to enable it.

Here's how to enable the on-screen keyboard in macOS Sierra:

Head to System Preferences > Keyboard on your Mac.

Then click on the checkbox that says "Show keyboard and emoji viewers in menu bar."

Now click on the icon in the Menu Bar with the Command (⌘) symbol, and select "Show Keyboard Viewer."

So in case you select "Show Emoji and Symbols," you'll be presented with a menu of emoji.

So from there, the keyboard will appear on your screen. You can click on letters/numbers to enter them in documents. Whenever you type on your Mac keyboard, the on-screen keyboard becomes highlighted
