The basic principle behind this program is 'Learning by Doing'. The user is encouraged to extend a database with acquired information about Chinese characters and Japanese Words. This information may turn out useful in the integrated text editor, for both reading and writing.
So there are multiple different uses for this program:
- Learn about Chinese characters. Gain, store and memorize knowledge about specific characters and words.
- Input devices for Chinese (and Japanese) characters. For use without much prior knowledge.
- Working with Japanese text, with powerful help.
Input devices based on visual similarities and pure ASCII readings.
Automatic space insertion before dictionary words and word highlighting.
Compact info display in 'Trading Card' style.
Currently the example database contains over 75.000 readings, including readings for more than 4000 of the most common Kanjis.
A youtube tutorial shows how to extend the database.
