Japanese Character Learning Program

Corinne McWilliams

For my project I would like to write an educational program that recognizes Japanese characters. It will allow users to improve their skills in drawing the first 10 numeric Kanji and the 46 characters of the Hiragana writing system. The program will prompt the user to draw one of these characters. It will then compare the user's input to a sample image of that character and either acknowledge it as correct handwriting or give the user suggestions for improvement such as "your cross-stroke should be straighter" or "you should make the curve more rounded".
