Annotated Chinese text file will appear here. You can
also still find the previous version of this program
The first time you use this tool, you will need to
do some set up steps.
A stand-alone version of this tool is now
available. If you have trouble getting this tool to work, you
might want to try the stand-alone version.
This tool helps you learn to read Chinese by adding pinyin next to
Chinese characters in files on your computer. You can click on
"Select/Annotate File" and then select the name of the text file to
annotate. This will only work with text files and not with word
processor documents like Microsoft Word or WordPerfect. However, you
can save your Word or WordPerfect document as a text file first and
then put it through the annotator. Once you've selected the file it
will start the annotation. Please wait a few moments while it
annotates the file.
You can select the difficulty of the characters that are
annotated. Selecting "1" means that all characters have pinyin
added. "2" means all but the most frequent characters are
annotated, and so on. You also have the option of only adding
pinyin the first time a character is encountered ("Only Once") or
every time the character is encountered ("Every time");
