This product employs the Pinyin system for input of text.
Pinyin input is a transliteration system that allows you to read and write Chinese using the Latin alphabet. It requires users to enter a series of standard symbol combinations which are then able to be read as an accurate, standardized approximation of the Chinese language. The Pinyin system of input is the most popular and easy to use methods of communicating in Chinese without using hieroglyphs.
