ChuYin is another common input mode. This mode applies the Chinese phonetic symbols to the phonetics of Mandarin Chinese. When a typed sequence of phonetics uniquely matches a Chinese character, the phonetics are automatically converted and the character is displayed. However, if more than one character matches a sequence of phonetics, a lookup selection area appears that shows you the available choices. Several pages of lookup choices are available for some phonetic sequences.
The following example uses ChuYin mode to enter Chinese characters that represent the statement, “Taipei's weather is very hot.”
