SwiftKey Keyboard Now Supports Cambodian/Khmer Script Typing

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Fri Jan 30, 2015 3:24 am

Swiftkey Adds Chinese, Khmer And Lao Languages To Their Keyboard App

The latest Swiftkey update adds Chinese, Khmer and Lao languages to their keyboard app for both the Google Play Store for Android phones and on the iTunes store for iPhones and other Apple devices.

If you think deciding between typing letters and swiping between letters is big deal on English keyboards used on smartphones, imagine if you had to add in options to use a third or fourth method to produce the typed script you intended. That is what some Asian smartphone users face if they want to use Khmer, Chinese Pinyin, Zhuyin or Cangjie to produce Asian script. In response to that, Swiftkey has recently completed beta testing their app for the Chinese language and has released an update to support Chinese, Khmer and Lao languages.

So how does it compare to using standard Unicode and the iPhone keyboards that are used now? Easier? More difficult? No difference?

I use Swype. Seems most accurate for me.

Every developer thinks they know a better way.

I use SwiftKey which used the Khmer Unicode keyboard layout, so for the most part phonetically mapped to qwerty, but my missus can't type on it because she's used to a different one on her phone.
