Kana DS

Learning Japanese writing on the Nintendo DS

30 June, 2007

Back to work!

Now that I'm finally done with my June exams, I am going to continue the work on Kana DS. For the next couple of weeks, I am going to focus on the kana database editing tool. I want to complete the following points:

  • Symbol drawing/editing
  • Load/save database
  • Export database (to an optimized binary format loadable by KanaDS)
Then I will port the recognition engine to the NDS(C++), do some tests and add another mini-game demonstrating the kana input.

I already have the application skeleton and base classes, which I have coded during the past month. The tool uses Java/Swing as I said in another post, so it will be completely cross-platform.
