Hey guys can i ask is there any program that adds furigana on a text?

I wanna do this to a book i have in pdf and I want to be able to choose which kanji to put furigana on, so that i
practice kanji that i already studied and i get some help while reading kanji i've never seen before.

I found some sites that add furigana but i'm looking for something more advanced (if it exists)...

Hm, not sure about PDF files, but it's quite easy to insert furigana into MS Word docs using the Phonetic Guide

Similar options exist for Open Office. As for browsers, Mozilla offers an extension for Firefox

If you're not careful furigana can end up being a crutch that hinders your kanji reading.
