Type Cantonese using Sucheng - Cantonese on Mac
After you set up the Sucheng - Cantonese input source, you can enter Cantonese characters.
Sucheng is a simplified version of Cangjie. The first and last keys from a Cangjie code are used as a Sucheng code.
A Sucheng code has fewer keys than Cangjie, but more candidates, so it may take more time to select candidates in the candidate window.
On your Mac, switch to the Sucheng - Cantonese input source.
In an app, type the Sucheng codes for the characters you want to use, then press the Space bar to place each character in your document. If the candidate window appears, select a character in the window.
For example, to enter 蘋果公司, type “廿金” (tc), the Sucheng code for 蘋, press the Space bar to show the candidate window if it’s not already open, then select the character in the candidate window. Follow the same procedure to enter 果 (type “田木”, wd), 公 (type “金戈”, ci), and 司 (type “尸口”, sr).
Note: You can also enter characters by showing the keyboard layout. Click the Input menu in the menu bar, then choose Show Keyboard Viewer.
You may need to change settings, for example, to show predictive completions or to change the orientation of the candidate window.
