Additional features of the virtual keyboard to support Chinese, Japanese, and Korean characters
To enter characters in your chosen language, choose one of the following options:
- For the Korean language, the keys on the virtual keyboard represent consonants and vowels of the Korean alphabet (Jamo). When you select keys, the Jamo are automatically combined in the character assembly area, and then transferred to the text entry field.
- For the Japanese and Chinese languages, use the Latin characters on the virtual keyboard to enter the phonetic version of words (e.g. Pinyin). When the character that you want to enter appears as a predictive text suggestion, select it to transfer that character to the text entry field.
If you set the virtual keyboard to use Japanese, you can choose to enter Hiragana or Katakana characters. To use Katakana characters, select the カタカナ key. Select the カタカナ key again to deactivate Katakana characters and return to Hiragana characters.
