A couple of early copies of KanjiTalk I picked up online. These early (pre-System 6) versions aren't on any of the Developer CDs I've seen. If anyone can add KT1.1 that would be nice.

Each consist of two disks: system and font. For KT1.0 boot from the System disk and insert the Font disk when prompted. You'll need to swap disks a couple of times during boot to load the fonts. For KT2.0 there's no prompt and it just boots to a system with some broken fonts. Obviously copying the contents of the disks to a hard disk is much better.

Wow, I never heard of that before. Fascinating to know that even exists. (Existed?)

Hopefully someone uploads that someday. I'd love checking that out.

漢字トーク( KanjiTalk ) V1.0発表前、キャノン販売が独自に漢字ROMを搭載して発表したモデル(DynaMac)にはカナシステムが採用された。

Before KanjiTalk 1.0, there was Kana System that can only use Katakana. It must be very rare nowadays.
