javascript IME

Colspan just asked me to testdrive his little invention.

Anywhere and anytime, the CJK crowd usually always needs a little program to type their complex characters with an ordinary QWERTY keyboard. Yes, it’s called an IME. At an ideal environment, IME comes with OS from first, but if you are at the airport out of nowhere or all you got is a plain English Web screen, and if you or your recipients don’t use English, probably you are at a loss.

The following two examples are the IME purely built with javascript. The Japanese IME also utilizes AJAX to fetch its character conversion dictionary.

It’s quite fun to look your characters being combined as you type just right inside your web form on the fry. However, don’t bother to test the same language with your current OS, though. You won’t be impressed by this web-based IME if you can’t distinguish them from the built-in IME.

Korean IME
Japanese IME

btw, is there any Chinese IME out there on the web?

  1. Hello.
    I know here is a Chinese javascript IME:

    There are many Chinese Input Method on the world,
    and This is ChangJie IME.
    It dose not use phonetics, but it uses shapes.

    For example, ‘a’ is ‘日’, so ‘aaa’ induces ‘晶’.
    ‘b’ is ‘月’, so ‘ab’ induces ‘明’.
    Indeed, it is difficult to induce ohter complex characters.

    중국어 javascript IME를 하나 알고 있습니다.

    이 세상에는 많은 중국어 입력방법이 있답니다.
    한자의 발음으로 입력하는 방법도 여러 있지만
    한자의 글꼴로 입력하는 방법도 있습니다.
    그 중 하나가 바로 ChangJie 란 방법입니다.

    예를 들으면
    ‘a’를 누르면 ‘日’을 뜻합니다. 그래서 ‘aaa’로 ‘晶’을 입력할 수 있습니다.
    ‘b’는 ‘月’이어서 ‘ab’로 ‘明’을 입력할 수 있습니다.
    다만 모든 한자가 이렇게 단순한 분해규칙을 가지는 게 아닙니다.
    점도 복잡한 규칙을 외워야 자유롭게 입력할 수 있답니다.
