I was just wondering what most people use for their input?
I mainly use romaji input but occasionally use my Google IME.
I would like to use kana input more, but the trouble is I’m much slower with it. Not actually with my Japanese input per se, but just generally with the interface and the method of typing. Swiping for English letters is a real drag!
Has anyone persevered with this input method and eventually found it beneficial and quicker?
I know a lot of Japanese people use romaji input themselves, but they are coming from the opposite side of the spectrum. As an English speaker I can’t help thinking moving away from romaji input will break down barriers and eventually help my comprehension. I still tend to think of words in romaji rather than kanji and this probably reduces my recollection when seeing the Japanese compounds.
On another point… is there anyway to type answers in katakana? I assumed Wanikani would just accept the katakana equivalents, but it doesn’t seem to. Inputting via this method seems like a good way to get my katakana on par with my hiragana.
