Version 8.0:
- A full recompilation has been made to be compatible with El Capitan and Sierra, and as Universal Binary to keep being compatible with both old (PowerPC) Macs and recent (Intel) Macs.
- The "How to intall it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the Application in particular under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.11 El Capitan and 10.12 Sierra:
Under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.11 El Capitan and 10.12 Sierra, if you're launching the Application for the first time, maybe Mac OS X's GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website). In this case, instead of double-clicking on it, all you have to do is to right-click on the Application's icon, and then select the "Open" menu. A message will appear in which you'll be able to confirm that you want to launch the Application (even if it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store from an Identified Developper).

4. How to uninstall it?
There should be no reason to do this. ;-)
However, if you really want, then you just have to throw the Application into the trash, and that's all.

5. How to use it?
Launch it and your Mac will play sounds like an old typewriter when you type your keyboard keys.
It appears in the right side of the menu bar.
The best way to use it is to add it in the Login items (in the System Preferences panel) so that it is automatically launched each time you turn your Mac on.

The "About..." menu:
It allows you to display the application About window.

The "Preferences..." menu:
It allows you to open the application Preferences window.
The Preferences window allows you to change the sound volume and to use your own sounds instead of the default typewriter sounds.
You can assign any sound you want (as well as no sound at all) to any key on your keyboard.
Typewriter Keyboard accepts any sound files (such as .aiff, .au, .avi, .mov, .mp3, .mp4, .sfil, .wav, etc... files) recognized by QuickTime.

The "Quit" menu:
It allows you to quit the application.
