What is Yomichan Search?
January 27, 2023 — Tatsumoto
Yomichan Search is a dictionary search tool that can be used in the web browser. It lets you use Yomichan similarly to Qolibri, but in addition it can parse and analyze entire sentences.
Install Yomichan if you haven't already. After you set it up, you can access Yomichan Search by pressing Alt+Insert or by clicking on the toolbar and pressing "Search".
It has a clipboard monitor which is something I use all the time. When enabled, it listens for changes in the system clipboard and automatically pastes text from the clipboard to the search page. Mpvacious was made to be paired together with Yomichan Search. Yomichan Search is also quite handy when mining from manga and reading books.
Alternatives to Yomichan Search are:
- Qolibri's Watch clipboard button.
- GoldenDict's "Enable Scanning" button.
