Somehow or other, I’ve cobbled together my first userscript.
few months year, the number one thing I’ve spent my WaniKani time on has been book clubs reviewing the same leeches over and over and over again. No technique has been completely successful at combating these leeches.
However, one recent technique has shown great promise for improving my kanji reviews: adding vocabulary words to the review screen. Having this vocabulary list has doubled to tripled my review accuracy for my kanji leeches.
To streamline this, I’ve put the logic into a userscript. It’s a simple script which alters the kanji review screen to display a list of all of WaniKani’s vocabulary for that kanji.
Install TaperMonkey or a similar userscript extension.
Download/install WaniKani Kanji Review Vocabulary List userscript.
Simply do your reviews through the WaniKani web site, and vocabulary words appear below the kanji on kanji reviews.
This script shows all vocabulary for the kanji, even if it’s from a higher level.
I am unaware of the long-term impact on using vocabulary as an aide to recall the reading and/or meaning for kanji. Use at your own risk.
