In an ongoing effort to improve accessibility, work has started on a new virtual keyboard app for Chrome OS.
Eventually this new app will live at chrome://keyboard/ and a flag will soon be available in Chromium OS builds to enable it (--enable-virtual-keyboard).

---Disclaimer: This post, as with the majority of content I share, is to be considered alpha information. While I won't share anything that isn't explicitly mentioned in the tracker / code review / a commit, Chromium is a quick moving project. It isn't uncommon for new features to drastically change or even get scrapped entirely before making it into a stable build. My intention is simply to catalog changes to the project code as it happens, not to predict future features or speak on behalf of the project.
