Chrome/Firefox Extension for Furigana (Hiragana over Kanji)
Based on an idea by computervirus99 I have made a chrome extension to display Hiragana above the Kanji also known as Furigana. I'll be constantly updating this plugin to keep up with Duolingo until they (hopefully) add it themselves.
Any bugs that appear are to be reported on the chrome webstore page provided below.
|toggle it on and off.|
|Multiple Modes: Kanji2Hiragana, Kanji2Katakana, All2Romaji|
Currently Acknowledged Bugs:
Not all sentances produce correct hiragana for the kanji for example 木よう日 which should produce もくよう ひ but doesn't.
Planned Features: |Adding Furigana to the tiles.|
p.s. If you are Duolingo staff I will be glad to share with you how the code works to hopefully get it implemented in one form or another.
Works great! Thank you so much!
Is it possible to make an additional extension that converts hiragana to their more commonly used kanji counterparts? I reeeeally hate reading a long string of hiragana, especially as most Japanese texts are more of a consistent mix of kanji and hiragana/katakana. Its also kinda pointless to learn new words if in most instances we aren't going to learn the corresponding kanji.
This extension doesn't work reliably. I use rikaichamp in firefox. It doesn't display furigana over the sentence, but you need to hover specific kanji/word. It's still really helpful anyway. here is a chrome port: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/rikaikun/jipdnfibhldikgcjhfnomkfpcebammhp
