Writing Pinyin tones and Downloading Vocabulary list

May 17, 2010, 05:16 AM posted in General Discussion

To anybody,

ChinesePod place in "Ad Ons" which allows you to check a box so that you can turn Pinyin numbers ...i.e. wo3 into the tone marks. But I can't seem to find an explanation as to how to actually physically do this. It just say you can do it .....did I miss something somewhere ?

Also can someone please tell me how I can download my vocabulary list onto my I Touch if that is possible ?

Thanks, Wesley

After you activate the feature you will have a button below your comment box that says "Convert to Tone Marks." When you write your comment you write the pinyin followed by a number: wo3. Then you hit the button and it magically turns into wǒ!

I am iTouchless, so cannot assist on the second question.

If you want you vocab on the itouch you could just use the Chinese pod application for iPhone.   Or just export in in one of the formats and import into  another program. I use Pleco dictionary but there are others that are free.
