Typing Pinyin using numbered input method on OS X Leopard (10.5)

Posted by billglover December 9, 2007 in the Group General Discussion.

I'm sure many of the Mac users out there are aware of this already, but I have just come across the Biaoyin2 plugin for OSX Leopard. It adds an entry to the Input Menu to allow you to type pinyin by typing the tone numbers.

I haven't used it extensively, but my initial reaction is that it feels easier to use than the US Unicode input method that I have used previously.

Has anyone else found an easier way to input pinyin on the Mac?
