    Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the Home screen, and at the bottom we'll see several icons.
    What we want to do now is show the current trace keyboard color that is being used. To do that, we need to open a Message.

    Now, we're going to press on "Add text" at the bottom of the screen.
    This will bring up the keyboard. In order to use the trace keyboard, it will need to be set up. It is not activated by default on the HTC One M8. The default setting for the trace keyboard is that it is turned off. However, it is very useful, so search for a video tutorial on how to set that up on this website.

    Now, we'll show what color the trace keyboard is set at by pressing down with a finger, then tracing to make words.
    We'll try to make the word Hello. First, we'll press down on the letter "H" and hold down as we slide our finger to the "E", the "L", and finally the "O".

    It has been successful, and it has typed the word "Hello" for us.
    The color of the trace keyboard was yellow, or the line that appeared was a yellow line. This color can be changed in order to customize it a bit more or make it something that's better for us.
