Vietnamese accents everywhere!
AVIM – the Advanced Vietnamese Input Method – is the most convenient tool for typing Vietnamese on the Web. It’s available as a free extension for Firefox and related applications. With AVIM, typing Vietnamese is so natural you don’t even think about it.
Fix typos at the stroke of a key
If you type the wrong diacritic, just go back and replace it – you don’t have to retype the whole word. And Undo and Redo work like they’re supposed to.
All the Web apps
Only AVIM helps you write effortlessly in Vietnamese in all the major Web applications, including:
Gmail and Google Docs
Facebook and Messenger
For polyglots like you
Whenever you need to write in English, just press
twice in a row to turn AVIM off. In many cases, you don’t even have to do that: by default, AVIM only affects words that look like Vietnamese. To write a loanword like Ctrl kilômét, insert syllable breaks with . Shift Space
Firefox… from head to tail
AVIM works in every part of Firefox, not just forms in webpages. So you can type Vietnamese all over the place, including:
URL and search bars
every Firefox add-on
Plus, you can compose e-mails in
Thunderbird and chat with friends in Instantbird too.
Many forums and wikis provide their own input method editors that get confused when you use another
IME. AVIM automatically turns off those IMEs, so you don’t have to hunt for them and turn them off yourself.
Some other input method editors send your keystrokes over the network as you type, making you more vulnerable to eavesdroppers. AVIM never sends any information over the network.
AVIM’s source code is free and open to the public – there’s nothing to hide.
As an option, you can even add diacritics to passwords, to make your passwords more difficult to guess.
Staying safe on the Internet requires vigilance and various forms of protection. It doesn’t hurt to use a keyboard that respects your privacy.
