Deze pagina beschrijft het voorgestelde werk van YuviPanda voor het maken van een open source Android toetsenbord voor tweetalige gebruikers. Het zou een portatie bevatten van de IME geproduceerd door Project Milkshake (gebaseerd op Extension:Narayam) en autocorrectie/autosuggestie bibliotheken. The entire project is to be GPL licensed.

Waarom?

Plenty of English speaking people are inherently bilingual - fluent in both English and their native tongue. Communication for them is inherently bilingual - seamlessly switching between languages. However, currently this isn't easy on mobile devices for two reasons:

  1. Not enough well-developed and maintained keyboards for native languages that are optimized for mobile use (think Swiftkey and Swype).
  2. Switching between languages is too cumbersome (Switch keyboard, wait for it to load up, familiarize self with new layout, etc.)

This project aims to fix these things by extending the default Android keyboard with support for two languages at a time (quickly switched with a single tap), and by providing transliteration engines for all languages supported by Narayam, along with autocorrect/autosuggest facilities to enable faster, more accurate mobile input.

Leverbare

  1. Port of transliteration engine from Project Milkshake/Narayam to Java
  2. Tool to allow conversion of Project Milkshake/Narayam keymaps to a format suitable for use from Java
  3. Bindings to allow tests from Project Milkshake/Narayam to run unmodified
  4. Tool to run through a large corpus of text in a target language and extract potential dictionary entries - and convert them to a format suitable for autocorrect/autosuggest use.
  5. Android IME (derived from built in Android Jellybean keyboard) with support for fast switching between languages, and autocorrect/autosuggest support for languages with dictionaries present.

Als de tijd het toelaat,

  1. Gereedschap om crowdsourced aangepaste woordenlijsten te bouwen voor in het toetsenbord te gebruiken.

Werk om af te maken van

  1. Will base entire project off of Android's LatinIME, which is the default stock Keyboard. Also has a word prediction / correction algorithm that could be adapted for our use.
  2. Project Milkshake / Narayam has the JS transliteration engine + language keymaps + tests that will be ported to Java to form the core of the keyboard.
