Joysound search - Using Keywords

Posted by Lina304

For this example, I'm assuming that you don't have trouble typing in Japanese. If you do, please look here. For English names and titles you'll use English keywords of course so don't worry.

Joysound no longer entertain "partial keyword" searches on their basic search bar, so for this, we need to use their "Detailed Search" option. It's located right next to the basic search bar (see image below).



This is how the Detailed Search page will look like :



1. Choose the search category you need (make sure it's right!) right above the search field. Here I've chosen Show Title.

2. Type your keyword in the search bar.

  • For Japanese words, use the Windows Language Bar tool to type, or one of the online Romanji-Hiragana converters.
    To learn how to enable the Language Bar or where to find the online converters, see the Useful Links section.
  • For English words, just type at will.

3. In the drop down box next to it, choose the middle option for a partial keyword search.

4. The pink box right under the search bar says "KARAOKE", so make sure the check box is ticked. Click the black button on the right.



5. The results will pop up depending on your search category. For this category, a list of shows that contain the keyword will appear. Click on the one that you need. For example, I've chosen Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon R (top).



6. A page listing all the song titles for the show should appear. Look through it to find the one you need. Click the title to bring up the song's page.



7. In the new page, find the song number that will be located as pointed above. Record it. Save it. Bring it with you to Yumekuukan :)

WARNING : Do NOT copy the number on the URL. THAT IS NOT IT.



In case I didn't make myself clear the first time, THE SONG NUMBER IS MOST IMPORTANT. IT'S THE REASON WHY YOU'RE IN THIS SECTION IN THE FIRST PLACE.

With this song number you can immediately input the song into your 'Karaoke List' without having to go through the trouble of searching thru the book (huge and somewhat outdated) OR the remote control (still quite troublesome).

Note : I'm aware that Yumekukan also has Korean/Chinese songs. Unfortunately I'm not sure how these songs could be searched on Joysound. You can try typing the Artist names in English and see if that works :)
