Furigana?

Is it possible for Japanese (edit: the course in Duolingo) to have furigana?

And if you don't know what furigana is, you've probably seen it. It's the small hiragana sometimes written over kanji.

(Edit: Especially being able to turn it on and off, because sometimes it could help you too much.)

What do y'all think?

I would like that too, it would make it much easier to remember what they sound like both stand-alone and next to other kanji.

-Make it so, mr Duo!

It definitely might help us learn the onyomi and the kunyomi.

If you start reading in Japanese you wil find furigana in the children grade books and manga's. I actually thought that furigana is exclusieve to Japanese. Seeing as they are the only ones that have both kana alfabeths.

I believe "is it possible for this Japanese course to have furigana?" is what was actually meant.

Furigana is supported by HTML so I don't see can't be an option.
