The Google Input Tools extension provides virtual keyboards for over 90 languages, full IMEs or direct transliteration for over 30 different scripts, and handwriting input for over 40 languages. What's New? ✓ Adds Hoocąk, Makah langauges. ✓ Updates some on screen keyboards. Usage Instructions: When you first install the extension, click on the extension icon, then select "Extension Options" in the pop-up menu. A new tab will appear where you can select your preferred languages or input methods.

To turn off an input tool, click on the extension icon and select the "Turn Off" option. To use transliteration, type languages phonetically in English letters, and they'll appear in their correct alphabet. Keep in mind that transliteration is different from translation; the sound of the words is converted from one alphabet to the other, not the meaning. For example, to get in नमस्ते with Hindi transliteration, type in n-a-m-a-s-t-e. You will get a list of Hindi words sound like namaste. Then, press SPACE to select the first suggestion नमस्ते. Latin IMEs are to help people type in Latin-script languages using the US keyboard. Features include automatic diacritics, spell correction, and prefix completion. To use Latin IMEs, type unaccented letters, and they will be corrected to a desired word. For example, type "franca" in French IME, "français" appears, and it can be committed by pressing TAB. If continuously typing "francais", "français" will be committed by pressing SPACE. To get all the candidates for "francais", press BACKSPACE. To use handwriting input, select the handwriting input of your desired language. Press trackpad or left click of mouse to hand draw a character on the pop-up handwriting panel. Select the character from the suggestion list, or simply press ENTER or SPACE key to select the first suggestion. Need help? Find a problem?

  • (2022-12-07, v: PineCone Kiwi: Korean Keyboard on Discord
    When I type on Discord using the Korean keyboard from Google Input Tools, the block building feature does not work properly, and the messages will be sent with each individual key press + the block, which makes it impossible to type in Korean using this. Please fix this. For example, if I type in "한국어" it will send as "ㅎ하한한ㄱ구국국ㅇ어" which again makes it unusable.

    I am unable to type in Marathi in web WhatsApp. The input tools work on other web sites (particularly Google web sites). In web WhatsApp, it simply types spaces regardless of anything you select from the drop-down list. It used to work fine until I updated the extension recently. Can you please fix the issue or provide an older version if you are not planning to fix it?
  • (2022-11-28, v: Barry Chan: Compatibility issues with web Whatsapp
    I've been experiencing a couple issues when typing on web Whatsapp after recent updates, could you please provide a source to older versions of the extension while you try and fix the issues, because the experience is nearly unbareable. Problems are as follows (when typing Chinese 廣東話): 1) first word will not show up, I must type a space before for the word to show up 2) chinese character when typing more than 1 character at a time, the words are highlighted and i must move the curser to the end manually everytime before typing the next word, otherwise will overwrite the first character i just typed.
  • (2022-11-27, v: Ben Lee: After typing 2 words, the words become selected...
    I use google input tool to input Chinese character via Cantonese input. Previously, when I key in words or phases in web.whatsapp.com, I don't need to have a leading SPACE. Now, every line must be started with SPACE, or numbers or alphabets, but not Chinese words using 2 bytes. Can this be fixed? Also, recently, after I choose 2 characters (1 phase), the shown characters were highlighted. I need to press RIGHT arrow to unselect. This is troublesome. Can this change be reverted to last version? Many thanks.
