Type of trial: participants can type the answers?

I have a plan to use PsychoPy for my project.
I have three different types of task for my participants. For example, one type, as a word card format (or flashcard), I would like to have a trial that provides a target word and that requires the participants to type the meaning of the target word. Is it possible?

OS (e.g. Win10):
PsychoPy3 version (e.g. 3.24.x)
What are you trying to achieve?:

Hi @skim2323, you can create your own text input using a text component. See the online demo we have available on Pavlovia. Note, this example uses the old style keyboard.

Thank you for a reply^^

Hello, just wondering if this method for text input is still the recommended way?

In the crib sheet I see this recommendation:

But here if we are updating every frame, should we include a check to see if anything has changed?

Just wondering because I have an experiment with similar code and a significant number of people have had the experiment suddenly quit on them; I am wondering if it’s a memory error from the text input.
