Japanese Flashcards Gadget

Might as well begin the week with some shameless self promotion! Here’s a little Google Gadget that I originally wrote for their recent gadget contest. It’s really a lightweight version of its .Net big brother, Proliphus JFC, but this one includes the diacritics too. I’m hoping to add sound and card printing once I get some more time. You can also get this and more on my Widgets Etc. page. Enjoy!


The Japanese flashcards gadget displays the Hiragana and Katakana character sets. Clicking a card will display its Romaji name. Cards may be displayed in order or optionally shuffled.

This gadget uses unicode to display Japanese characters and should work on any system that supports Google Desktop and unicode.
