Stroke5 Keyboard for Android

By Wan Leung Wong Free

Developer's Description

This is an implementation of Stroke5 Chinese Input Method for elders and kids on Android Platform.

For More information you can find in here: http://stroke5.webnode.tw/

The project was started by a group of elders in Hong Kong in 2003.

It is design for stoked elders who had difficulty on using computer for input Chinese characters. Stroke5 had categorized the Chinese Storkes in to five types, Zigzag Horizontal(Rise), Throw away, Dot(Press down) and Vertical, which are mapping on "n","m", ",", ".", and "/". As Stroke5 uses five keys to input which means people can use one hand to type Chinese characters.

As people who learn Chinese must have to learn how to use Strokes to write Chinese Characters, Stroke5 is an easy way to input Chinese Characters without learing any other kinds of Chinese Input Method. This means it is easy for those espically elders who haven't learn any PinYin or ZhuYin before (as not all Chinese know Mandarin) to type Chinese on Computer which means it can help to narrow down the Digital Divide between elders and the socitey.

Stroke5 is not just for elders but also for kids. The project had run an experiment in a kindergarten that taught K3 children to learn how to use Stroke5. After that childen could type their own Chinese name on the computer.
