ABSTRACT

There have been significant changes in Hangeul history. These changes seems to come from needs of the time. Collinear writing was claimed and horizontal writing replaced vertical writing and Combination mode Hangeul was developed. Number of Hangeul fonts dramatically increased due to various needs of usage. Despite these changes, the way of making Hangeul font has not changed since late 1980s. There are Completion mode and Combination mode Hangeul font design method. Completion mode Hangeul is the best way of making decent font and it adopts national standard text input system. However, it takes long time to generate fonts and need special coding. By contrast, Combination mode Hangeul is very economical way of making font. It needs to design only a dozens of vowels and consonants. Combination mode Hangeul adopts 3way text input system which is unaccustomed to users. Whereas, if Combination mode Hangeul font can be changed its text input system, it can be great Hangeul font design method. This study propose new text input system in Combination mode Hangeul font. 33 keys out of 60 are the same as national standard input system. The result of survey research tells that new text input system is 79% similar to national standard. The new text input system could be the beginning of convenient Hangeul font design method.
