Functionality Description
End User-Defined Phrase (EUDP) EUDP enables users to define a customized phrase inline. Users can select the phrase in the composition string and then press the ENTER key on the target device if they are using a hardware keyboard, or choose the "Phrase" button if they are using the Shuang Ping on-screen keyboard. EUDP support is configurable through the registry.
Self-learning capability MSPY 3.0 remembers user modifications in the composition window and adjusts the occurrence frequency of a specific word or string that is entered by the user whenever applicable. This functionality is always enabled and cannot be disabled. For more information about the composition window, see Using the IME Composition Window.
Double Spelling (Shuang Pin) Input Method On-screen keyboard that supports Double Spelling (Shuang Pin) input. This input method provides an advanced phonetic input model that requires fewer keystrokes.
