MS Mincho nightmare

I’ve been using satori reader for a while now with my WaniKani kanji progress plugged in for review practice.

However I’ve just got a new laptop and every time I go onto the site now it’s displayed in MS-Mincho which I just plain refuse to read. Any ideas what’s wrong. No other device show the text in such a horrible font.

Things I’ve tried so far…

  • Installing a load of Japanese fonts
  • Using the meiryo chrome extension
  • Using the Chrome advanced font settings extension
  • Changing the fonts in Internet Options
  • Crying

Any help would be much appreciated.

Their site specifically requests MS Mincho for the articles.
You can override it with the following script. Just create a new script in TamperMonkey, and paste the code below.

// ==UserScript==
// @name         Satori Reader Meiryo Font
// @namespace    rfindley
// @version      1.0
// @description  Uses Meiryo font for articles on Satori Reader.
// @author       Robin Findley
// @match*
// @grant        none
// ==/UserScript==

(function() {
    var css = '*.article {font-family: "Meiryo";}';

    var head = document.querySelector('head');
    var style = document.createElement('style');
    style.innerText = css;

Alternatively, if you use Stylish, just add the following CSS rule for

*.article {font-family: "Meiryo";}

(disclaimer: I don’t use Stylish, so I don’t know how you add CSS rules)


That worked, thank you :grin:
