Non-ambiguous Pinyin Publishing

 

With KEY 5.3 installed, you can now export Chinese text to HTML and send it, browser-readable for the recipient even without KEY. The text is in digraphia mode (i.e. Pinyin, with Hanzi associated in the background), so that the recipient can resolve any Pinyin ambiguities even if the text is sent in Pinyin-only mode (with or without tone marks). The non-ambiguous browser-readability of electronic Pinyin text is a significant contribution to Pinyin literacy and Romanization of the Chinese language.

Examples of Pinyin text generated with KEY5.3, using the feature "Non-ambiguous Pinyin Publishing" on the KEY "File" menu:

1) Pinyin file generated with KEY5.3 and sent as HTML with the settings "Pinyin text with Hanzi tooltip":
