    Default Chinese Pinyin database

    Hi. Is there a way to turn on Pinyin when looking at each of the Chinese versions? That would be very helpful for those of us who are not very good at reading Chinese, but are learning it. Is there a way to add that into BW?

    This is not available in BW now. I am pretty sure that the programmers do not know what pinyin is. I vaguely remember hearing my daughter in China mention it, but I don't remember what it is either. Is that the simplified characters used to teach Chinese? Or is it the ability to type a character and choose similar-sounding characters from a drop-down list? I have seen my daughter do those things, but I have never done them myself. My guess is that a different Chinese font would be needed.
