WHY 8 Steps Unihan ?

As you all know, there are quite a few Chinese input methods software that come together with Google, Windows  and other operating systems .Not the least among them is the Pinyin. But Pinyin has its disadvantages:

At least half of the total number of Chinese characters in Unicode are without pronunciation. Meaning  Pinyin cannot display these characters. On top of this, so many characters share the same pronunciation that oftentimes simply  picking out your target becomes quite a chore!

My  8 Steps Unihan has the following advantages :

  1. Almost 95% of the characters can be displayed with  one  unique  keycode.
  2.  100% of the characters in Unihan  can be displayed  by Eight Step Unihan input method
  3. Only 5% of the characters in Unihan have  shared keycodes in 8 Steps Unihan. Mostly you just need to select your target  from  2 to 20 characters at the most,  all contained  within 2s pages.
  4. A keycode in 8 Steps Unihan will not only give you  a Chinese character , it will also gives you many useful relevant referencing sources about its pronunciation, its meaning, its  origin and its variant forms  if they exist.
  5. Each keycode is made up of  numerals ( 0 to 9) and/or  alphabets ( a to z ). Simple ?
  6. You can now access all the Chinese characters  in Unihan version 15.1 in WINDOWS 10!

8 Steps Unihan  definitely is the choice for all librarians , archeologists , writers  and lexicographers and, not the least of all,  common users like you and me!
