Exercises Dictation Question

March 15, 2011, 01:57 AM posted in General Discussion

I have searched because I think someone else has asked this question before.  When I am working on the Exercises tab of the lesson I cannot find out how to correctly type in the text for the Dictation (listen to word or sentence after clicking speaker icon) section.  I type in the Pinyin using numerical notations for the tone but it is always marked as incorrect.


What is the trick?

I tried the execrise, and it works for the text of the Dictation. For exmaple: "ni3 you3 che1 ma". Can you check if you type it in this way?

Yes, I tried it and it works if I correctly enter the text with the correct tones.  In the past I must have made a mistake in my pinyin and tone marks...
