What is

Kakvei is a technology that improves your Khmer typing experience by converting Khmer transliteration to Khmer script and providing spell-check on Khmer script.

Kakvei History

Kakvei project first started in the third quarter of 2022. The idea of Kakvei came from the difficulties we encountered when typing Khmer. We understand the frustration of wanting to use Khmer but are being restricted by our inability to type it fast and inefficiency in creating Khmer documents that are free from mistakes. Having this common goal of improving the Khmer typing experience, we came together as a team to make this goal happen. We aim to create a tool that is available on different mediums, including both phones and computers, that can provide efficient and effective Khmer transliteration conversion and Khmer spellcheck and grammatical check.



Kakvei Prioritize

Convenience & efficiency in typing Khmer

Improving communication in Khmer

Reducing errors

Helping Khmer learners

Increasing the exposure of Khmer words on the internet
