Cantonese Artificially-intelligent Phonetic Input Method—Thanksgiving Release

2 Nov 2023

This is a new bug fix release of my Cantonese Artificially-intelligent Phonetic (CAP) Input Method for macOS, Linux, and Windows 10. Most significantly, a number of long standing bugs resulting in crashes have finally been removed in the Windows version. If you have used CAP in Windows and experienced problems previously, please try this new version. It's a lot more stable. Also, its SLM has been updated and new words and pronounciations have been added.


Follow one of these links to download the version of CAP for your platform.

Also, the Windows version has been tested and it works correctly on Windows 11.


To install, follow the instructions for a previous release of CAP, for example the Black Bauhinia release.

For the Windows version, unzip the distributed ZIP file and click/double click on the setup.exe file. This will automatically download and install a Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable package on which CAP depends before its installation, if necessary.
