  4. How to use:
  5. 1. Download and install Autohotkey (

  7. 3. Use the shortcut provided (or customize it yourself)

  9. Window key + x - Toggle Auto OCR On/Off
  10. Window key + a - Manual input to Kanjitomo and change input to Japanese/Hiragana
  11. Window key + s - Define English word in Google
  12. Window key + c - Copy, paste words in text file and save**
  13. F1 - Toggle Japanese/English input
  14. 4. For '**', you need to set the directory first before you can use the shortcut, or it won't work and error pops up: "The system can't find the file specified"
  15. 5. Open the script in Notepad
  16. 6. Change location of Kanjitomo and location of text file with extension.
  17. 7. Save and open the script again
  18. 8. Test the shortcut, if it works, you're done. If there's error, there's probably small fuckup, check the script again.
  20. Customizing shortcut:
  21. Open the script in notepad
  22. "#q::" is the shortcut key, change to however you want. #q is a combination of "#" and "q" (# is window key and q is q button.)
  23. More hotkey is in ahk wiki. (
  25. Extra:
  26. . If you're lazy to press button, you can set mouse shortcut if you have more than two button in your mouse for extra comfy. I use Logitech gaming mouse software.
  27. . Put the script in startup for easier copy and paste words you found on the internet to your Anki text file and easy open Kanjitomo.
