Abstract

Chinese character is not like English word which is a combination of alphabet. Whatever Chinese input method you are using, you have to select one from a choice list which have same pinyin, stroke, shape or voice etc.. We often select an unintended character but cannot aware of the error in time until review. Currently, to correct the mis-selected Chinese characters, we have to delete them, then, re-input the right ones. This invention provides you a more reasonable method to correct Chinese characters using reverse input process. The core idea is to pop up a choice list for users to correct the selected character(s), and the choice list is generated according to the saved input method. It is only used to correct Chinese characters that caused by unintended selection from choice list for input method. Following are the details how to implement the method: 1. Store the Chinese characters input process through a table including the peers: Chinese character(s) && input method 2. For most recent input, when you move cursor at the wrong character, it will show the choice list for the input method. 3. For saved inputted characters, it will check the peers table to reverse the input process to generate a choice list. 4. The peers table is stored in memory firstly. When the table gets larger than a defined size, flush it to a temp file. When you close the document, you may save it to the document, or remove it. If it is saved, when the document is closed/opened again, the peers table can still be used to correct inputted Chinese characters. 5. If the characters are modified to new ones, the peer is updated with new character(s) & input method. 6. Open a document without peers table, we can manually select an input method, then generate choice list for characters or word For example: 1 , 2,3 (, handwriting), (, pinyin), (, voice input) When you move cursor to the wrong inputted Chinese characters, and choice list is generated according to the saved input method. The wrong character was inputted using pinyin, It reverses the input process and create a choice list for pinyin "hao", in which all characters have same pinyin. . Select to correct the input without re-inputting pinyin "hao". "" was inputted through voice, the list with same pronunciation will be generated, and select ""

Correct Chinese characters using reverse input process

Whatever Chinese input method we are using, we often input incorrect characters and cannot aware of the error in time until review. Currently, to correct the wrong Chinese characters, we have to delete them, then re-input the right ones.

For example, you are using pinyin input method and enter "会去吃饭", "会" isn't the wanted character, and you should have inputted "回". To modify "会" to "回", the following 5 steps must be done:

1. Select the character "会";

2. Delete it;

3. Convert to pinyin input method;

4. Input pinyin "hui";

5. Select "回"from the choice list.

For the other example, you could be using Chinese handwriting input method, and you want to input "好好吃饭". When you select the character from the choice list, you mis-click on "妈妈". The sentence becomes "妈妈吃饭".You didn't find out this mistake in time and now are correcting it during review. You must complete the following 7 steps:

1. Select "妈妈";

2. Delete them;

3. Convert to handwriting input model;

4. Re-write "好";

5. Choose "好" from the choice list;

6. Re-write "好";

7. Choose "好" from the choice list.

You can image same case for voice input that recently becomes more popular in smart phone.

Usually when we are correcting an incorrect English word, the editor software usually prompts user with a choice list, usually we can get the correct from the choice list. It is because the English input mistakes are almost all from spelling, and English words are separated by a blank.

Chinese Character is much more complex than alphabet, and could depend on handwriting or pronunciation.

This invention provides you a more reasonable method to correct Chinese characters. The correcting choice list depends on what input method the user is using.

This invention helps to correct Chinese character through inverse-input-process. For every input, the Chinese input software will record a peer of (inputted words, input method). For the m...
