  • Publication number: 20220215681
    Abstract: A first character string obtainment unit according to one or more embodiments may obtain a first character string in response to an input character string that has been input. A similar character extraction unit extracts similar characters having similar shapes as characters in the first character string. A second character string generation unit generates one or more second character strings in which some or all of the characters in the first character string are replaced with similar characters extracted by the similar character extraction unit. Then, a conversion candidate output unit outputs the first character string and the second character strings as conversion candidates for the input character string.
