Toggle Like Key Customization in Kana to Kanji Conversion

       In describing a customization file of kana to kanji
conversion user interface, the linkage of function primitives can be
expressed in series, parallel (toggle-like) and their combinations.

      In key customization of kana to kanji conversion(KKC), a single
function (process) is assigned to an input key.  However, a
toggle-like process (continuous depression of the same key) is not
found.  Therefore, by continuous depression of the non-conversion
key, toggle-like processes such as hiragana conversion, katakana
conversion, eisuu conversion and kanji conversion cannot be expressed
by this method.  Different keys must be assigned for each process.
The figure below shows an example of the key assignment.

      These problems arise in current methods:
P1:  When the KKC functions increase, many keys are needed.  In
general, keys available for KKC are limited by application programs.
P2:  In spite of similar functions, operators must learn each key and
function.

      According to this proposal, parallel or toggle-like functions
can be assigned to an input key.  The method decreases assigned keys
for KKC, and improves usability.

      The method is realized by adding the method of key
customization and the interpretation part to the kana-to-kanji
conversion program.
Serial linkage: '+' denotes this linkage.
