Not Japanese IME compatible

I think WaniKani should allow numbers and letters typed through the Windows IME. To get used to having to confirm everything in Japanese I’ve been using it on the site but it will usually just do the error shake (shake shake shake) and I have to turn off the IME to re-type the answer in English keyboard.

You shouldn’t use an IME on WaniKani for two reasons:

  1. The IME will suggest kanji conversions, so during reading reviews you’ll see whether your answer is right before you answer. If you just type in romaji using the English keyboard, WaniKani will automatically convert it to kana.
  2. You can’t use Japanese characters during meaning reviews at all, including the full width number characters, as you can see. And there’s really no reason it should work since the answers are always in English anyway.
