Delivering advanced input feature to users


Input method plays an essential role in internationalized desktop
particularly for CJK and Indic. However, sometimes it is not easy to
add advanced input features to input method, because it involves a
number of components as below:

- applications
- UI toolkits
- input method frameworks
- input method editors
- backend libraries

This talk will explain how they interact with each other, and discuss
how advanced input features such as re-conversion, prediction, online
word registration etc. could be delivered to users. Also we may
discuss about features rather related to UI, like character map or
handwriting, which require more thinking when it will be integrated
into desktop environments.

Benefit to attendees: They will learn the overview of the modern input
method architecture, and the way to create a feature-rich input method
editor and backend library in a reusable manner.
