problem with keyboard

Post by paueu » Fri 06.10.2005 10:21 am

i've enabled jp on my computer and at the very beginning it was natural input, for example, I typed 'k o' and it was こ , but now something changed, and to write こ i have to type 'b' ;/ .. in this menu where I choose IME Standard, just beneath that option is NATURAL input, but it is disabled ;/ .. i can't choose it, what should I do to write as at the beginning again? ;|

btw, i use win xp pro

it sounds like you have changed you keyboard settings.....

Go to your regional and language settings (control panel) and click on Languages then Details....see if your native language is set as the default....if not, that's your problem.

yeah it is default, but I want to write hiragana with natural input, just like nihon=nihon, not like I have to enter some other letters to write hiragana types signed to them .. it worked at the beginnik, i just wrote as i'm writing now and input is normal, it was written what i typed, but now every diffrent hiragana's char is on diffrent letter on keyboard ;/ like i would just use normal japanese font, but i don't

I guess I'm not understanding the problem....when I want to type in japanese I use romaji - which is then converted to kana/kanji....

you want to type directly into japanese (skipping the conversion?)

if you wish to do that, you should probably order a japanese keyboard...

EDIT: Sorry, just re-read your original post...

The way you are typing japanese IS NATURAL....the "B" key on a japanese keyboard is the character こ ....

What you want to do is the same way I enter japanese (with Romaji!)

i'm assuming ur using microsoft IME (provided with Win XP)...
On mine, there is 2 settings to choose from, and the default is "IME Standard".
The other option is "Natural Input". For some reason i can't even select natural input now, but the one u want is IME Standard.
Hope u get it working again!
