Keyboard extension?

Keyboard. (for example it would be lovely addition to Text to speech!) I assume that a Keyboard is not a facility that I've somehow missed... It would seem to be a worthwhile extension to offer. (It's a very long leap from AppInventor to Java! and one that at 80 I don't wish to take (Vb6 is enough for me!))

What does the default keyboard not do that you want it to do? Give some examples....

I don't see a default keyboard. I didn't know there was one! How can I get that to appear on the smartphone screen.

Sorry Tim. I see now that if I try to populate a TextBox, the default keyboard appears!

There is a textbox extension that adds a couple of things to keyboard functionality

and the Tools extension has a show keyboard block
