Asian Text Input
By Roy Ratcliffe, May 13, 2010
You have a Chinese Simplified or Traditional, Japanese or Korean Watchtower Library and want to run it on your Mac. Watchtower Library for Mac lets you install and run the library. Good. But it does not let you enter Asian text in the search box. Not good!
This is an issue I have been working on for some time. I’m imagining that there are many such users. After all, there are far more Mandarin speakers say compared to English speakers; though perhaps not of those in the truth. I remember Harry Cotton’s accelerated language learning classes: only about 300 million English speakers, compared to billions of Mandarin speakers. English is a minority language, even if you count those speaking English as a second language.
So Asian input has been at the top of my to-do list for quite a while. Sorry for lack of progress. But I am getting somewhere, although I have not had a lot of time for developing it.
