5.6. Java program to display numbers


Sorry, your browser cannot load the Java applet.




This applet needs Java 1.1 or higher.

Type a number and you will get the Japanese reading for the number. Upper alphabets are phonemes, and lower ones are Romanization. When you don't get any response, hit the applet with the mouse to get the focus.

Ancient Japanese numbers are also supported. Of those, only one to ten are commonly used now, and multiples of ten (twenty, thirty, etc.) are used only for a person's age. Few modern Japanese speakers know the ancient number system, such as use of the word (a)(ma)(ri) "amari" (remainder) to combine numbers.

Use backspace key to delete the last character. Use up arrow key to add one and down arrow key to subtract one.

Use the list box to change fonts.
