ASCII has has 33 control characters, among which tab and esc. These can be typed in your terminal through control-something. For example, CTRL-I is tab, CTRL-[ is escape, CTRL-H is backspace (destructive) and CTRL-M is enter. This is not really a solution to all the problems, but at least you can type tabs without the on screen keyboard.
