Welcome to the UTAforum!

UTAU is a Japanese voice-synthesis program used to create singing vocals for music. It is much like the more popular, commercially sold Vocaloid products, but UTAU is freeware!

Type Kana, Get ・

I just installed UTAU for the first time this morning using the UTAU wiki's tutorial and, aside from headaches regarding text encoding left and right, things are mostly working.

However, I found that I am unable to enter any kana via the normal Windows Japanese IME. If I type, for example, "あ", I get "・" instead. I can copy and paste Japanese text from other applications just fine, even if I used the Japanese input to type it.

What's going on here? I'd really like the ability to use non-Romaji voicebanks, and this is a major hindrance.

Scratch that; if I paste a kana in the lyric box then insert it, I get a note with a ・ in it. Looks like I have no discourse if I want to use kana at all.

I had this problem too; are you using AppLocale?

If you change to Japanese Locale and try UTAU outside of AppLocale it should work. At least, that solved it for me.
