Use Sony-350 Dictionary to improve reading of Kanji characters?
My daughter is learning Kanji in school. She finds it cumbersome to search for characters she doesn't know in a dictionary. Thus she doesn't like to read text in Japanese for pleasure.
I wonder whether the dictionary function of the Sony reader could help her to read text that contains Kanji characters. If she doesn't know a character she could look it up in the dictionary. That way she could read stories and she could improve her knowledge of the characters.
I don't speak Japanese so I would like to know whether the dictionary useful in this respect. If so, how can I load a Japanese Kanji dictionary onto a (German) Sony? With the Sony read Japanese text or do I have to install a specific firmware?
Thanks fro your help!

At the moment you can't install any extra dictionaries on the Sony. And even the Japanese firmware has only E->J and E->E dictionaries.

Try EPUB or LRF. In any case it will work with embedded fonts / modified CSS. (but only horizontal, left to right)
