è CangJie allows keying even if you do not know the pronunciation of characters. No need to know pinyin or Bopomofo.

è CangJie, therefore, helps students of Chinese to remember characters' shapes & structure: an incredible bonus for those who suffer learning this beautiful but difficult language

è CangJie gives a unique code to each character: so your input gets the character you want directly on the screen, not a list of characters to browse.

è   CangJie Input Method is supported by all Chinese Operating & Chinese Enabling Systems.
