I'm not aware of any current OSX for Windows Pinyin apps. There are a number for iOS and Android.... or you can use and webapp option on your Mac like this: http://pinpinchinese.com/pinyin-chart-online/
This is the best iOS option: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/allset-learning-pinyin/id483673874?ls=1&mt=8

It's more about ease of listening. This is why newscasters and radio host train their voices to speak in a specific manner. There is no complaints on my side about Fiona speaking quality. She speak both English and Chinese clear and concise in my opinion. I could listen to her speak either language for hours.

Gwilym is hard to listen to in general and hard for me to understand at times... I'm American. I think they should eventually find Fiona a better co-host her voice is quite the opposite... very easy to listen to. Ken and John have been by far the best masculine voices in comparison in my opinion. Also I like that the French are not so fluent in English especially for the Americans!!! We yanks need to learn more languages instead of blearily speaking one well :)

Hey this was a good lesson in my opinion. I'm the one sleeping in every morning we the alam going off every 10 mins because I just keep hitting the snooze. I really like when I can listen to lower level lessons and fully understand everything 第一次。

Agreed! WAY!!! Probably above Elementary also! But looking through the site... what is left for newbie content. Maybe just start reissuing old newbie lessons???

I really enjoyed today's lesson. Thank you both! I'm with Adam I will take a more authentic Chinese dressing anyday over 蛋黄酱和千岛汁。 Reminds me of too many unhealthy American BBQs in my past. I would love a lesson on healthy Chinese salad options.
