Auto-text voiceover rotor for Chinese keyboards

iOS and iPadOS

To all Chinese keyboard users, does anyone know what the auto text rotor does when use with the Chinese keyboards?
All I know is that when you flick up and down in the auto text rotor, it will give you options for various different words in Chinese.
But I’m not sure what auto text is used for.
Chinese keyboards can be enabled through keyboard settings on iPhone and iPad, What I want to know is that is there any use for the auto text feature on Chinese keyboards with the voiceover rotor?

Hello ,
I understand you are typing on a Chinese Pinyin keyboard.You should know that the Chinese Pinyin input method has a feature. A string of Pinyin codes corresponds to many Chinese characters with similar pronunciation, so we need to select the word we really want to input.The "Auto Text" rotor is to provide such a method for selecting candidate characters. When we enter a string of pinyin codes, the "Auto Text" will be activated, and we can swipe up and down the screen with our fingers to select these candidate characters. VoiceOver also assigns a word to each candidate to explain it.
I don't know if you can understand this explanation.
