I think your best bet is to use a virtual keyboard.

He uses his keyboard but just don't like to use it. He is an average joe user and prefers clickable buttons. MS Excel has buttons for often used characters and he would like to have them in LO too - thats all.

Hi @Klau3, I think what @drone27of1 means is an on-screen "virtual" keyboard like this: https://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell/Design/Whiteboards/ScreenKeyboard
