Perhaps the most challenging aspect of learning to read Japanese is the chicken-and-egg problem of kanji. To learn and exercise your kanji, you need lots of reading practice. But before you've reached a critical mass of knowledge, it's easy to feel swamped by all the characters you don't yet know.
With Satori Reader, you can choose to see words in kanji, kana, or kanji with furigana (readings) based on your individual knowledge and preferences. For example, you can choose to see the text exactly as the author wrote it, but see furigana over words that contain characters you don't know. Or, choose to see kanji only in words that contain at least one character you know. Or choose to see everything in kana only. It's totally customizable, and it's completely up to you.
How does this work? In the example below, we've set up three imaginary users, each with a different kanji knowledge. Pick a user, then try different display preferences and watch how the text changes in response.
Create review cards for new words you encounter while reading. The cards bring along the entire sentence you originally saw the word in, including audio and notes. You can even collect multiple sentences for a given vocabulary word, helping you to build connections and lock the word into memory.
In this demo, to keep things simple, the Japanese is shown with the "Kanji: As Written" and "Furigana: All" display settings, but when you add words to your review deck, they will match your knowledge and display preferences, just like episode content.
