Projects / DFBKana


DFBKana is a small DirectFB program to help you learn Japanese kana (hiragana and katakana). You will be presented a kana character and you have to guess the pronounciation by selecting the apropriate romanji field in the romanji grid window. There are also some other guess modes (show hiragana, guess katakana and vice versa). The program uses nice colors to visualize which characters you know well and which you don't.
