Use of QWERsive as alternate input method editor for Asian languages
QWERsive is a patent pending technology from IBM* that combines the concepts of
cursive handwriting and QWERTY keyboards. A stylus is used to draw connecting lines
between the geographic locations of characters on a keyboard, thereby offering
significant advantages for data input in handheld computers.
Asian languages that require an input method editor (IME) for character entry could be
replaced on a PDA or pen computing device (or normal system) by use of the
QWERsive entry system as the front end processing for entry of the characters. The
normal IME could then be called for the final processing step of data entry. Normal
QWERsive entry - gesturing the primary entry of the IME would be used to save time in
the entry of the phoneme for lookup. The second state proceedes as normal IME entry
selection of the appropriate Asian language character.
