What is the font used by kanji koohii for kanjis?

#1
I'm trying to type kanjis on my computer, but some of the kanjis I type look different than how they look during my flashcard reviews on kanji koohii. What font is used by kanji koohii for rendering the the kanjis?

On my computer it's Hiragino Mincho Pro, but I believe it could be another font on your computer depending on OS prefs and installed fonts.  But try Hiragino Mincho Pro and maybe it works.  I don't believe there are as many Japanese fonts as in common use so you're more likely to get lucky buy just trying the few that are installed on you computer.

Thanks yogert909 and Fabrice. I use MacOS Sierra on a MacBook Pro.

So I freshly installed Windows 10 in my computer and downloaded Google Chrome. It turns out that the kanjis in the stories are displayed with a very thin font that I can barely read. See screenshot: https://ibb.co/e4ztd5. I tried using the Advanced Font Extension for Chrome to modify this without success. Has anybody encountered the same problem and solved it? How?

Interesting. It looks like the same font, only rendered smaller.

You could try different fonts, but you could also look into switching the font aliasing.

I forgot to mention it, but I solved this problem some weeks ago. Basically I had a screen resolution of 125%. I adjusted it back to 100% and scaled Chrome accordingly. No more thin, quasi-invisible characters.
