Abstract

When user input words into the computer with non-latin charaters, the input method can search candidates from pre-defined library and list possible words in editor with a special sequence. The sequence can reply on the used frequency of the words, the hot words or new words on Internet. Sometimes, after user looked at some documents or pages in Web or applications, he or she may want to type some "new" words which he looked at in the documents or pages by IME(input method editor) to send a message or write an article or do any other things. Current IME may don't list those candidates words/sentence on it's first candidates window so he/she have to find it in next page of editor or type character one by one. It's also slow to find those words/sentence in documents he looked and copy/paste. This invention bring out a new method to adjust sequence the candidate words in IME. When user browse the documents or web pages, the IME analyze and segmentate words from it looply in a short period. A temporary words library is created to store new words. When later user type keyboard to input the words which he/she have seen in the documents or web pages, the IME search words both from temporary library and traditional library, and list the words from temporary library in first position of candidates window. This method save the effort for user to type character one by one, when the words he/she want to type is in temporary library but not in traditional libarary or have a low weight in traditional libarary.
