The mac directory contains Japanese related programs for the Macintosh
line of computers. You will need a kanji system on your Mac to use
most of these programs.
This is a Japanese-able telnet program for the Mac. It probably requires
KanjiTalk to function.
This is a package for setting the system font and other font-related
things with KanjiTalk.
This is version 1.3 of GomTalk. It works with Kanji Truetype and A/UX.
GomTalk allows you to combine the Japanese parts of KanjiTalk 6.0.7 (or
188.8.131.52) with US System 7 (or 7.0.1), giving you a Kanji System 7.
It works great. The Kanji System 7 itself requires about 7.5 megabytes
of disk and almost 2 megabytes of RAM, so you'll need more than 2 megs
This package contains Japanese language instructions, see the
GomTalk_Manuals for English documentation (for version 1.2.1, though).
Also see the Japanese_Fonts file in this directory for additional very
useful fonts. GomTalk is also compatible with Adobe Kanji
Type Manager (ATM-J).

[Directly from the author]
This is a inline-entry extension for the KanjiTalk 7 Kotoeri front end.
This file contains two pseudo-kanji fonts, Koshigaya and TokyoSJ40.
Tokyo is a "kanji" font, where the ASCII characters are from Chicago,
and Koshigaya seems to be the same with Geneva. They are quite small,
as they utilize tha kanji bitmaps from other fonts.
Tokyo is great as the system font under KanjiTalk (you can select the
system font easily with e.g. the GomTalk Launchscript control panel).
With Tokyo, your KanjiTalk Mac looks like a "real Mac" :-)
Koshigaya might be good as the Application font.
Recommended, if you're using KanjiTalk.
This is a control panel for "customizing" KanjiTalk. It allows you to
select the system and application fonts (probably this part works on
non-Kanjitalk Macs too), Date and Sorting options.
This should work on older KanjiTalks, may not work under KanjiTalk 7.
This is a tune-up for the Kotoeri kana-kanji front end in Kanjitalk 7
(i.e. Japanese system 7.1).
This is the Macintosh japanese-english and kanji
dictionary program. You will also need the files edict and kanjidic
from the info directory to use this program. Using it requires
KanjiTalk, and about 2.5 megabytes of disk space.
This is a Kanji-conversion (SJIS, EUC, JIS) program for KanjiTalk.
This is a KanjiTalk NNTP newsreader. Probably requires MacTCP.
This program is a good Kanji (JIS) capable terminal emulator for the Mac.
It requires KanjiTalk system for kanji support, but works under "normal"
system too (but without kanji :-). It is quite simple, but very fast
and stable. Freeware.
This control panel lets you see those File... and SomethingTM texts
in menus and elsewhere again, when using Kanjitalk (which usually
converts the last character to some half-width kana).
Stayhere allows you to set the keyboard script, and will keep it from changing
unexpedtedly. Very convenient.
YooEdit is a simple, but well working Kanji-capable text editor.
This directory contains BETA (i.e. unfinished) versions of software for
handling Japanese with the Macintosh.
Please send clear and concise bug reports and comments directly to the
If you are not a "Macintosh power user", maybe you should wait until these
are released officially.
Additional pseudo-Japanese fonts. ASLFont+ (9/12 point) combination
of Monaco+Osaka. Tokyo (12/24) Chicago+Osaka (good as system font).
Koshigaya (9/12/18/24) Geneva+Osaka (good as application font).
Yoshinogari (9/12) Geneva+Osaka. K2! (9/12) Chicago+Osaka.
Also included is SysFontINIT.
Overlaps with Japanese_Fonts.sit.bin. [info-mac]
This is the demo for a commercial kanji dictionary/learning tool for the
Kanjiworks does *not* require KanjiTalk or Japanese Language Kit to operate
as it contains it's own fonts.
Among the prominent features are many good example phrases.
This demo requires about 1.6 megabytes of disk space and includes the
first 80 kanji, 500 example sentences and 900 kanji compounds.
This is a dictionary drill program for the Mac, which does NOT require
KanjiTalk or JLK for the DISPLAY of kanji! Includes extensive sample
dictionaries. Requires KanjiTalk or JLK for the input of new kanji
words, though. Requires about 5 megabytes of disk space when uncompressed.

lessons in grammatical instruction and drill for students at an
elementary level of Japanese Study. Requires Hypercard 2.1, and
