KanaQuiz - Learn the Kana characters in a fun and easy way.
Version: 1.3KanaQuiz is a simple program to help in learning kana for Mac OS X, written entirely in Objective C, using Apple's Cocoa Frameworks.
Operating System: Mac OS X
Kana, the phonetic Japanese characters, are very similar to alphabets because they represent sounds, and are usually used to describe any sound in the language.
If the main KanaQuiz window is displayed in study mode, clicking on any button in the table at the bottom of the window will change the characters displayed in the three boxes across the top of the window. For example, clicking the "Ko" will change the three boxes to read 'Ç±', 'Ko' and 'ÉR' respectively.
Clicking "Pronounce" will pronounce the displayed character out loud.
Unchecking any checkbox will disable all of the buttons in the corresponding column.
When in test mode, the role of the computer is reversed. KanaQuiz will display a character in the hiragana and/or katakana boxes, and you can test your ability by clicking on the corresponding button at the bottom of the window.
KanaQuiz will only test you on characters that are enabled via the row of checkboxes. Using this, you can focus on a specific subset of the kana with which you are having trouble.
Each time you guess at a character, the score in the middle of the window is updated. You will be told whether or not you were correct, and, if not, what the correct answer was.
The score section also contains a running total, showing the number of characters that you successfully guessed, the total number of characters displayed so far, and your score as a percentage.
