Florence is an extensible scalable virtual keyboard. It's designed for GNOME but can be used in any DE (without some features). You need it if you can't use a real hardware keyboard, for example because you are disabled, your keyboard is broken or because you use a tablet PC, but you must be able to use a pointing device (as a mouse, a trackball or a touchscreen). In GNOME Florence stays out of your way when you don't need it: it appears on the screen only when you need it. A Timer-based auto-click functionality is available to help disabled people having difficulties to click. If you have problems switching keyboard layout (language) in KDE4, reconfigure layouts in KDE4 settings once and it should work.
