Extra Fox – A blog by Christopher Taylor

Someone smart blogs about Furigana.jp

Posted in Uncategorized by extrafox on April 26, 2007

I was browsing through the referrer lists for Furigana.jp and I found a very nice post in the Blogosphere.

I found this awesome tool for reading Japanese from web pages and text files. If you plug a URL into Furigana.jp, the engine will turn out your text with the wee hiragana gloss that is called furigana. If you are semi literate in Japanese like me, then you can quickly read a text loaded with unknown kanji using this handy phonetic script. [erizabesu]

Quite flattering considering this person actually knows what they are talking about. Read the full post because it has some very interesting tidbits about the Japanese syllabary and even some things I had never heard about before.
