Alternatives to TypeKana

Hey all, I’ve just recently started out and have been using https://lab.fleon.org/type-kana/ to help speed up my hiragana and katakana reading speeds, unfortunately their site went down and from what I can tell the creator @fleon hasn’t been on in a while so I was wondering if you guys had any alternatives to TypeKana? Thanks!

I didn’t realize it went down. Thanks for letting me know. It is now back up.

I use this site

This one especially for reading and typing kanji. These are short passages instead of just random characters. Plus, it’s timed. https://www.e-typing.ne.jp/roma/variety/long.asp

If you can’t read the kanji you can look at the bottom where it shows the kana version.

I smoked some of my students.

Are there different rules for how the little ones work? I typed “ryo” and it was marked incorrect. I’m using Safari on the latest iOS (11.4.1) on iPad.

I’m a bit surprised that my katakana accuracy is better than the hiragana one. I’ve always thought that my katakana is a bit rusty because it’s rarely used.

Might I also suggest an improved version of Type Kana (one of the forks)

Thanks a bunch!

This site looks awesome! Thanks so much :smile:

Some reason I never knew this was a thing. Ive used real kana before but this is a more of what im looking for. My hiragana is pretty good, but my katakana is lacking so ill check this out.
Than k you for suggesting it.

Hey am I just going crazy or do the periods not work on https://cody-duncan.github.io/type-kana/ for the Word mode?

Yeah, there is an error in the code.

TypeError: undefined is not an object (evaluating 'hiraganaToRomaji[hiraganaChar][0]')

The program doesn’t know what a full-stop in Japanese is 。

:cry: Looks like a cool idea though
