By installing this extension, you agree to the Terms of Service at http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/terms/. Switch to typing in a different language with the click of the mouse, and switch back just as easily. 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? ✓ Upgrade to Chrome Manifest V3. ✓ Fixes an issue where the extension wouldn't work on sites like Facebook, Twitter, or WhatsApp. ✓ Fixes issue which extension can't change input tools on docs/sheet/slide etc. 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. The keyboards, IMEs or handwriting input you add to 'Selected input tools' can be enabled at any time from the extension itself. You can always return to this options page to add, remove, or change the order of your input tools. input tool, simply click on the extension icon, select the desired language tool in the pop-up menu, then click on any text box on the web page. 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?

I've been using this extension for ages, but it happens from time to time that when I'm trying to type chinese while using Google Doc/ Slides etc, the punctuations are not right (I am using cantonese input), even if I've switched it to chinese with the "。," option. Sometimes the defect goes away when I close and reopen the wndow or restart my computer, but this time it persisted for two days.
