This is a Dashboard widget for Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) that acts as a flash card mechanism to help people who are trying to learn the Japanese 'kana' character sets. It offers a random character from a deck, and then will display the roman alphabet equivalent when flipped. Through preference settings, one is able to choose between either Katakana or Hiragana character sets, and then choose a selection of Vowels, Basic form syllables, Voices/Plosives, and/or Y Dipthongs.
