After learning the basics of Hiragana, I decided that I needed some typing practice. This tool was built to help me out with that.


This tool has only been tested on Linux with mozc input. This blog post describes how I set this up.


With python3.7 installed, run the script.

$ python3 learn-kana

Then switch to mozc Japanese input. A ticker will be displayed, and all you must do is type out the highlighted character. Once all 50 characters have been typed out, a score and time will be displayed, along with a list of every character that was typed. Incorrect entries will be highlighted in red.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
