An Input Method Editor (IME) is a program that enables computer users to enter complex characters and symbols, such as Japanese characters, by using a standard keyboard. Input to an IME is not supported when you play back an action recording or running a coded UI test, because an action recording cannot aggregate actions into a single action.
