XNeur ā€” in-place conversion of text typed in with a wrong keyboard layout


xneur [options]


When users work in a multilingual environment (e.g., Russian+English), they sometimes type in a text with a wrong keyboard layout. In auto mode, XNeur can detect the language of the word the user tried to type, automatically switch keyboard layouts and convert that word into correct keyboard layout. In manual mode it allows the user to convert last typed word or some selected text into another keyboard layout with hotkeys. The main idea of this utility is similar to that of Punto Switcher for MS Windows. Currently XNeur supports Armenian, Belarusian, Bulgarian, Czech, Georgian, German, Greek, English, Estonian, French, Kazakh, Lithuanian, Latvian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Ukrainian and Uzbek languages. Stay tuned for more...
