Keyboard commands or keystrokes

Is possible to send keyboard commands or keystrokes? I guess not, but simply wondering.
Simply sending a keyboard command, shortcut, keystroke etc to be received by the desktop running the ap server for example, from a ipad running the app in browser. I mean, pre programmed keyboard stroke as alt+ctrl+t in ons push button that would run the keystroke in the server desktop.

No it is not possible:

Hi Jean. I see quite a lot of people asking about this? I know it’s not what osc was designed for…but…what do you think? Would it be too time consuming to implement? One day? Never?

I’m afraid the answer is never, o-s-c is just an osc controller : the midi extension is the only exception to this and I’m not willing to make another one. This software is built with modularity in mind, not just at it’s own scale but at the system’s : having one software per job, that does it right, and the possibility to connect different softwares to serve any purpose.

Fair enough. Good answer. Appreciate it.

I can understand adding this directly could make the app lose his focus. After a quick search I have seen multiple solutions for this that could complement Open Stage. They are apps/scripts to translate OSC or midi messages to keyboard shortcuts in the host.
I will try some of these but if anyone can share how they work for them would be great as It seems logical many people are interested in using Open Stage to control both things at the same time, and a bridge could allow it. I guess some of the solutions will be better than others.

These apps use midi or OSC signals to convert them to keystrokes (not tested any of them ). Some of them multi platform:

This translate OSC to keystroke

Another one, this is the one with more internet references of people using it for that:

I believe there’s also an autohotkey script, but I haven’t tried it yet…
