Graded pinyin (Beginner/Junior/Senior levels) You can pick a grade that matches your chinese reading competency. Chinesebrowser pinyin layout has been carefully designed to be minimally invasive. It is not our intention to make readers dependent on pinyin to read Chinese. The overall design in Chinesebrowser is intended to function as a learning support mechanism(辅助作用). However, reading Chinese text, from simple text to policy documents and books, can be quite challenging even for those who have attained a high level of competency simply because the character/phrase/usage/vocabulary range for Chinese is very (very) wide. We have found that leaving the pinyin on the full page (default) does not hinder reading/learning even for very competent users.
