Abstract

In the Kanji Information Display System, when Kana-Kanji or Romaji- Kanji conversion is done, a Kanji candidate is displayed on a display screen by applying attributes of the field and/or each character. This helps an operator to determine the validity of the candidate and the validity of the data presentation which is formatted and shown by attribute characters. According to a Kanji input method using the Kana-Kanji or Romaji- Kanji conversion technique, an operator inputs the phonetic expression of required Kanji or Kanji word by Hiragana, Katakana, or Romaji via a Hiragana or Katakana keyboard. (A Kanji character or word has usually many homonyms. The homonyms of the phonetic expression are called candidates.) A Kanji candidate will be displayed by pressing the conversion key.

In the Kanji Information Display System, when Kana-Kanji or Romaji- Kanji conversion is done, a Kanji candidate is displayed on a display screen by applying attributes of the field and/or each character.

(A Kanji character or word has usually many homonyms. The homonyms of the phonetic expression are called candidates.) A Kanji candidate will be displayed by pressing the conversion key. If the displayed candidate is not the one the operator wants, the next candidate will be displayed, if it exists, by pressing the conversion key again. When a candidate is displayed, it is treated as if it were input directly from the keyboard and is displayed by applying the characteristics of the field attribute and/or the extended attribute. The automatic skip function is also effective. The cursor may skip the attribute character or field(s) according to the attribute character describing the next field, upon entry of the character into the last character location of an unprotected data field. Therefore, the operator is able to see the final sc...
