Handwritten kanji recognition. Draw a kanji in the box with the mouse. The computer will try to recognize it. Be careful about drawing strokes in the correct order and direction.

The computer will write the top twenty kanji which it thinks match your drawing below. The best match is on the left. You can change where the links on the kanji go to on the Options page.
