Image from store Korean IME with Romanization Tool
Description from store Update: now works in Google Docs This extension allows one to type in Korean (Hangul) without a system-wide IME installed. To switch between standard and Hangul mode, click the "a/한" icon (the extension icon), or tap the Alt key on the right hand side of the spacebar. The keyboard layout behaves the same as the Korean keyboard layout (2 Beolsik). This will work from any type of keyboard (Dvorak/Russian/Azerty, etc.) Additional features include: * Right-click on Hangul text and click "Romanize" to get a romanization of the Hangul. This is based on Revised Romanization, but doesn't include some of the complicated rules. * Moving the cursor to an existing character and pressing Shift+Backspace will re-enter edit mode on that character. It should work on any input field within a webpage, except Google Chrome Store as extensions are not allowed to run on those pages. This uses a Korean keyboard layout for the Hangul input, e.g. the letter "A" maps to the letter "ㅁ" which is 'm' in Korean. If you are unfamiliar with the Korean keyboard layout, please Google it.

  • (2018-02-08) Richard William Sproat: Hmm, well this certainly doesn't work "out of the box" on Chrome on Ubuntu. It is supposed to work even if a system-wide IME isn't available. If I click on the icon it switches from "a" to "한" but I still get Roman characters when I type. (I got that "한" by using Google Translate's keyboard :)
  • (2017-11-29) Kim: it only worked on certain websites instead of all websites! it would be helpful if i could actually write korean on the websites i need to!
  • (2017-11-25) To switch between normal keyboard and Korean keyboard, hit the extension button in the extension bar. It is working, it's cool, but the keys are not in the same order on my keyboard, so I cannot use it if I didn't memorize the Korean keyboard first. Only good for the people who know this keyboard. They should add an option to have the letters in the same order than the keyboard I have!

  • (2017-01-07) Massey Pierce: Works great. I use it along with the Memrise website to study Korean. It would be even better with a toggle key.
  • (2016-09-09) Rody Prieto: When I click the button on the dropdown menu it just links me to the chrome web store page instead of changing to Korean? What gives, homie? On Windows 7

  • (2020-01-11, v:2.2.1) maxi_: shift key skips character
    Everytime i need to input a letter with shift, it skips to the next character/syllable. So when i try to type 있 it turns into 이ㅆ, and 예 turns into ㅇㅖ. This didn't use to happen until recently (a week ago, more or less). Also, it happens with both shift keys, left and right. Thanks in advance :)
