I might have seen it - could you give us the subscription address so I can
forward this to the Korean forum? Thanks.

Hi Joseph,

I dont know if you saw this or not, but Mick has just recently set up a list
where these issues will be discussed.
It would be great if you can give him feedback on that list, since he is
currently working on adding input method support for asian languages.

Best wishes,

Subject: [NVDA-dev] A new NVDA dev list for Asian character input

Hi all,

Today I created a new email list for people interested in contributing to
NVDA's support for Asian character input, which I am currently working on in
the inputMethods branch.

Info on the list or to join, go to:

The goal with this work is to allow users to efficiently enter asian
characters (specifically Chinese and Japanese) using NVDA, which includes
reading of candidate characters, and navigation of the composition string.
This also includes better announcement of input method switching.

I would like to thank both the TDTB in Taiwan and the HKBU in Hong Kong for
funding this particular project.
