Add support for name's phonetical transcription (furigana/yomi) in contacts

Posted on 2011-01-17 11:51 UTC by Taro Hirabayashi. Status: Under consideration

The built-in contact manager does not support the fields for the furigana (phonetical transcription) for the names in other non alphabetical languages (expecially Japanese and Chinese). The vCard standard supports these fields and it should be implemented in the built-in conctact manager.

Solutions for this brainstorm


Solution #1: Add support for the field and implement it in sorting contacts

Posted on 2011-01-17 11:52 UTC by Taro Hirabayashi.

The two furigana fields should be implemented, and used for sorting the contacts in alphabetical mode.

In addition to it a sorting for kana (japanese phonetic alphabet) fields should be implemented.
