Today we’re proud to announce two new Korean packages for Keyman Desktop 8.
The Korean KORDA keyboards are built to type Korean using the transliteration system KORDA (Korean Romanization for Data Application). The KORDA system is based on Korean pronunciation and follows a strict 1-to-1 principle of transliteration.
Because it's unambiguous and phonetic, the KORDA keyboard is an excellent choice for non-native speakers and new students of Korean. Unlike other common input methods (including Microsoft's Korean Standard Input), KORDA's phonetic input system makes learning to type Korean easy for new typists.
The Korean KORDA package comes with two keyboards which behave in the same way. The Jamo keyboard creates Korean hangeul from jamo each time you press spacebar. The Latin keyboard does the same thing with Latin letters. They have the same layout.
The Korean Morse keyboard is built for the Morse transliteration system. The Morse system is not based on Korean pronunciation. It is an historical system for specialists, which pairs each Korean jamo with the Latin letter that uses the same Morse code value.
The Morse system has been popular among government and military organisations because it offers 100% data accuracy. However, the KORDA system also offers 100% data accuracy, and we recommend the KORDA system unless you have specific training in Latin-Korean Morse transliteration.
