Can someone recommend software which enables one to type hentaigana / historical kana? Hopefully software which is easy to use and free.
As you might already know, unlike the modern hiragana or katakana, hentaigana are not only one for each pronunciaition. Several kanji are used as a base for one pronunciantion, and furthermore, there are many variations for each kanji depending on the writing style. That's why it's hard to convert by a software or something. You need to choose the one written on your catalogue manually from a list of many variations of hentaigana.Thank you very much for your guidance. My query might seem strange but I am simply wishing to type the hentaigana so as to make more clear the written hentaigana in some haiku as part of my exhibition catalogue. Thank you once again.
