When using phonetic input method to add an identification(^1), many Chinese characters need ㄥsymbol (mapping key is /) to assemble. But the symbol key (/) conflicts with the default shortcut of searching function on iNaturalist. Many Taiwanese people feel frustrated because when we try to add an identification by typing Chinese characters associated with “ㄥ(/)”, the system just remove all of the typed common name characters immediately. Therefore, could it be possible to remove “/” on the identification interface?
Taiwanese bopomofo keyboard
thanks a lot
^1 Most of the Taiwanese iNat users use “bopomofo” input method, which use two and more “bopomofo” symbols to assemble one Chinese character. For example, 紅 (red) is assembled by ㄏ+ ㄨ + ㄥ + ˊ。
