Description
Source
A package that adds support for easily typing Pinyin Mandarin Romanization characters. Transcribing the tones involve adding diacritics above vowels. This is difficult with a conventional QWERTY keyboard, and so this espanso package adds easy mnemonic support to type tones.
The mnemonic is:
  • Type the vowel character
  • Press
    SHIFT
  • Type the "backslash"
    \\
    character
  • Type the number of the tone you wish to add (e.g. 3)
  • Release
    SHIFT
For example, to type
ě
, type
e
,
shift
\
3
