Description

TECHNICAL FIELD utilizing continuous phonetic characters on the digital keyboard

The present invention relates to a method smart pinyin input Chinese characters, and in particular relates to a method for pinyin input using the numeric keypad characters, specifically speaking continuously using a phonetic characters on the numeric keypad input method.

Background technique

With the development of information technology, communication people are no longer limited to voice applications, but need to emotions through text messages or E-mail the way. Existing technologies include mobile phone Chinese input Pinyin input method and stroke input method. Pinyin input method is to preclude the use of the word phonetic input technology, but there are obvious drawbacks: the numeric keypad (particularly standard phone numeric keypad) mainly use the traditional method of letter layout, i.e. sequentially distributed in 26 Latin 2-9 on eight numeric keys, each key distribution 3-4 letters, the user presses the single Chinese character to be input alphabet corresponding number key, and then confirm from the candidate phonetic alphabet pinyin compliance rules in the composition, and finally from Pinyin is confirmed candidate corresponding to the selected characters. Because many Chinese homophone, and in the absence of tone, with spelling words more often need to press the joystick to select the word many times they want to enter, and then repeat the above steps to enter the next characters. This word Pinyin input method is slow, and can not be smart pinyin input sentence or a phrase. No stroke input homophone many problems, but its drawback is the need for a stroke input "kanji stroke → → digital" paradigm shift process, and stroke input applies only to "look lose" does not apply to "listen to lose" and "want to lose ,,, that is, when the thought of a pronunciation of the word but forget the written word, on the greatly reduced input speed.

For reference, Patent Application No. "02102200.3" entitled "Improved digital keyboard and the use of the keyboard Pinyin input method" Chinese patent, and Patent Application No. "03119525.3" patent entitled "numeric keypad phonetic sequence input China Patent law ", is to reduce re-rate input by changing the position to fight the letters on the number keys of the keyboard, but this result is a standard mobile phone users have become accustomed to numeric keypad keys of the phonetic alphabet is very convenience, accuracy and speed input and the input has been a great influence.

SUMMARY

Object of the present invention is to provide an intelligent method of using the numeric keypad input phonetic characters continuously, the method does not change the existing fans standard phone keypad phonetic alphabet keys, and an agent capable of matching phrase text, phrase, sentence of , thus reducing the number of compressions numeric keypad, speeds up text entry.

Chinese input method of a portable terminal of the present invention, wherein the portable terminal includes a display screen and a keyboard with a numeric keypad keys comprising a plurality of function keys and at least one, at least two letters assigned at least one number key, pressing the said function key or a function key to select a combination / confirmation function; wherein: the steps of:

(1) on the Pinyin Chinese keyboard presses the input unit corresponding to the numeric key, every time the number key is pressed, shows the possible combinations of letters in Chinese phonetic alphabet compliance rules on said display screen;

(2) pressing the function key or a function key combinations, to select / confirm at least a portion of the Chinese pinyin input unit corresponding to; display candidate Chinese characters with phonetic letter combinations selected matches on the display screen combination;

(3) repeating the above steps at least once;

(4) pressing the function key or a function key combinations, to select / confirm the Chinese input unit, and displays on the screen shown.

The Chinese input unit may refer to: the phrase, the phrase, sentence.

The Chinese phonetic alphabet can be a combination of a complete alphabet consonant vowel combinations. The Chinese phonetic alphabet can be a combination of only the initials of the alphabet combination.

The Chinese phonetic alphabet compositions may comprise a combination of only the alphabet vowels.

The Chinese phonetic alphabet can be a combination of full and consonant vowel phonetic alphabet including only combinations of initials.

The Chinese phonetic alphabet can be a combination of full and only consonant vowel phonetic alphabet comprises a combination of vowels.

At least a portion of said alphabet consonant vowel may means a portion of the complete alphabet.

Shows the possible combinations of letters of the Chinese phonetic spelling rules compliance may refer to a combination of alphabet pinyin candidate generating compliance rules, and can be automatically separated from each character of the alphabet according to vowel sound.

Shows the selected combination of Chinese phonetic alphabet characters match and may refer to a combination of the candidate lists at least one composition selected to match the phonetic alphabet character candidates according to a combination of candidate characters using frequency combinations.

Shows the Chinese phonetic alphabet is selected to match the combination of candidate characters may refer to a combination of: the combination of the selected alphabet process as a whole, is determined for each phonetic characters corresponding to at least one semantic lists selected alphabet character candidates that match the combination compositions.

The letters may include a phonetic character.

Corresponding relationship between the keys and the numeric keypad as letters, numbers "2" key corresponding to A, B and C three letters, numbers "3" key corresponding to the D, E and F three letters, numbers "4" key corresponding to G, H and I three letters, numbers "5" key corresponding to J, K and L three letters, numbers "6" key corresponds to M, N and O three letters, numbers "7" key corresponding to P , Q, R, S four letters, numbers "8" key corresponding to T, U and V three letters, numbers "9" button corresponding to the W, X, Y and Z are four letters.

The portable terminal may include: a mobile phone, a personal digital assistant (PDA), telephones, remote controls.

Effect of the present invention, by utilizing the keypad to provide intelligent continuous phonetic input method, without changing the existing standard phone keypad keys of the alphabet, to achieve a continuous intelligent Chinese input on the portable terminal, and can be phrases, smart text phrase, sentence matching, thus reducing the number of compressions numeric keypad, speeds up text entry.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION

1 A method for Chinese input on the portable terminal of the present invention, the step of FIG.; FIG. 2 is a schematic view of "Tonight" Chinese input unit of the present invention is applied.

detailed description

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF BEST MODE The following embodiments of the present invention binds.

A Chinese character input method on the numeric keypad based on continuous input alphabet, the 26 English letters in accordance with the standard distribution of keys on a standard numeric keypad keys; wherein numeral "2" key corresponding to A, B and C three letters, numeral "3" key corresponding to the D, E and F three letters, numbers "4" key corresponding to the G, H and I three letters, numbers "5" key corresponding to J, K and L three letters, numbers " 6 "key corresponds to M, N and 0 three letters, numbers" 7 "key corresponding to the P, Q, R and S, four letters, numbers" 8 "key corresponding to T, U and V three letters, numbers" 9 "button corresponding to W, X, Y and Z are four letters. When the input unit to input Chinese characters composed of at least two on the numeric keypad, comprising the steps of:

(1) on the Pinyin Chinese keyboard presses the input unit corresponding to the numeric key, every time the number key is pressed, shows the possible combinations of letters in Chinese phonetic alphabet compliance rules on said display screen;

(2) the user presses a function key or a function key combinations, to select / confirm at least a portion of the Chinese pinyin input unit corresponding to; and displaying the selected candidate Chinese phonetic alphabet combination matches on the display screen combination of characters;
