  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

The libzhuyin project will provide the algorithms core for intelligent sentence-based Chinese Zhuyin input methods.

With the assistant of libzhuyin, the user can correct some words of Chinese sentence, then libzhuyin try to figure out the rest of the inputting sentence for the user.

Benefit to Fedora

Enhance the experience of Fedora for Chinese Zhuyin users by guessing what the user want to input.

Scope

Develop the ibus-libzhuyin project in order for users to use libzhuyin backend.


How To Test

For gnome desktop:

  • Check whether "New Zhuyin" is listed in "Region & Language" and default IME list.
  • Try to add "New Zhuyin" to IME list, begin to use the new Zhuyin IME.

For non-gnome desktop:

  • Check whether "New Zhuyin" is listed in ibus-setup dialog and default IME list.
  • Try to add "New Zhuyin" to IME list, begin to use the new Zhuyin IME.

User Experience

With the libzhuyin back end, Chinese users may speed up the Zhuyin input.

Contingency Plan

libzhuyin is already in Fedora 19 but in worst case we could still keep the ibus-chewing as default Zhuyin IME.

Release Notes
