You must be registered and logged into HPC:Factor in order to contribute to the SCL.


This software works with the SHARP color electronic dictionary Brain series.
This is a Japanese input software for Windows CE that enables subclause conversion.

This software uses words based on the frequency of occurrence of words in sentences collected on the Internet.
A generated dictionary is included, so
The feature is that words that are used more often are given priority in conversion.
Currently, dictionary editing tools are not included.
Also, instructions for appropriate verbs for words have been implemented.
The configuration is done manually, so it is not working for some reason.
These will be provided in a future version.

To start, insert the MicroSD card into Brain, press the library button,
Open the app in the card, select Japanese Input and press the OK button.
If the startup is successful, an icon written as "Aa" will be displayed at the bottom right of the screen.
To start inputting Japanese characters, press the small letter key,
Confirm that the icon has changed from "Aa" to "A".
If you start the app again when it is already running,
A dialog for saving and closing the learning record will be displayed.
If you select Yes, the learning results up to that point will be saved to a file.
If you select No, Japanese Input will close immediately without saving the learning results.
Learning results saved in a file will be automatically loaded the next time you start the app.
To discard the learning results and return to the initial state,
