PM)</td></tr><tr><td id='QUOTE'><!--QuoteEBegin--> I'm reading this Japanese book, which is a little more

difficult than I expected.
When I come across a kanji that I don't know, I used to kindda guess it and

look it up in the dictionary, but now that my Japanese has deteriorated, I can't even guess the

pronounciation.
Is there a way that I can look up a kanji without having to search the stroke count ?
Is

there something that I can buy, technology wise, that will just highlight the word in the book and look it up

for me?  I'm so lazy, but i hate searching through the dictionary while I'm reading because it

takes so much time to get through the book!!!!! <!--QuoteEnd--></td></tr></table><div

Not sure if this makes sense to you but here you go...

You could

look up a kanji from "bushu", which is like the stem of any given kanji. So if the kanji you are

looking for are, say... 聡 職 聖 聴, then your bushu is mimi 耳. And

if you have a kanji dictionary, you should be able to look it up by looking at the 耳 bushu section... but

then it takes pretty long as well....

What about this? :

all in japanese.


basically, apparently there's this function where you draw the kanji and get the meaning, pronunciation

etc instantly. It's through IME and microsoft Word... that's all I know..

Or maybe this: <a
