[Userscript] ConfusionGuesser

v1.15 feature request (beyond making “use IDS” the default :slight_smile: )

I’ve been using the Niai 似合い Visually Similar Kanji script that for quite a while now. I’m definitely planning to continue to use both.

One feature I particularly appreciate with the Niai script is the ability to add my own characters.

For example, I frequently mix up (こう) and (こう), so I added the latter to the “visually similar” list. Whenever you add your own visually similar character, the script adds it to the beginning of the list it displays (which is quite helpful). I’ve used this whenever I regularly mix up characters for any reason (not just visual similarities, but similar readings or mnemonics, etc.).

The Niai script is only for kanji, though.

I’d love the ability to add vocabulary I frequently confuse to the confusion guesser. In other words, for the occasional instance where I know exactly which item I’m confusing something with, I’d like the ability to add it to the Confusion Guesser and have it display it preferentially over the default.

Ideally (while I’m wishing :slight_smile: ), I’d like the option when to make additions bidirectionally. In the example above, for example, I added 効 to the entry for 功 but didn’t take the time to open another browser tab for 功 and add 効 to it. It would be nice if the script took care of adding it in both directions.

Finally, in version 2, I’d really appreciate it if the script magically prevented me from moving on too quickly to the next review because I was so confident in my answer that I didn’t see the red until too late. So annoying.

Hmm. That last was a joke, but now that I’ve written it, I think I may put in an RFE to the WK team. It might be a good idea to stop listening for the return key for a few hundred ms after an incorrect answer.
