If your keyboard does not show up, click ‘Refresh Cameras/Keyboards’ in the settings menu.

Select your Keyboard from the dropdown box in the settings menu.

Your key presses should now show up on screen.

Load up your video software and click the button to share your screen.

Settings

Turning this on will cause Keyshare to make piano notes whenever a key is pressed. Turn this on if your piano doesn't make a sound by itself.

Your camera and plugged in keyboard should show up here in Keyshare's settings – make sure you choose the right one!

Click this if your camera or keyboard isn't showing up, and Keyshare will try to find it.
