Any kanji lists for the wordfield "operating instructions"?


16 Sep 2003
Are there any? I've noticed that if I have a look at Japanese operating instructions for, say, a toaster, I'm sometimes unable to grasp even the gist of them.

Then again, my Japanese's not that good yet, but still, this is pretty frustrating. Any suggestions, is there anything I can do?
Do you mean a list of words such as these that often appear in appliance instructions?
