I'm currently starting to learn to use a cangjie keyboard for typing Chinese (倉頡) and I'm struggling to find the combinations for characters. I would like a resource where I can use my slower handwriting recognition keyboard to type in a character and it'll return the correct key combination.

Before you suggest for me to use a zhuyin keyboard or other, I wasn't born in Hong Kong / China, and neither have I had the adequate education to know enough Chinese, as I was taught it by my parents.

  • I'm not sure of an app that is solely for converting a character to its Cangjie inputs, but there are a few online resources like Wiktionary that will display Cangjie decompositions. There are a few Wiktionary smartphone apps these days, so if you get one of those that should do the trick. – dROOOze Feb 10 '18 at 13:25
  • But I still want to suggest you to use other input method, cuz cangjie is harder to learn than other methods. If you like methods based on stroke, try 五笔, or if you like methods based on pronunciation, try pinyin. – sunfy Mar 1 '18 at 15:02

  • Thanks! Are you from HK? It is scarce that I see someone type in Traditional Chinese because most come from China, or learn the Chinese from China – VortexYT Feb 19 '18 at 16:32
