I guess things like screen reader won't work on Windows 11 anyway, right?
Is it posible for developers to start testing apps now?
Mike, now with this announcement, are you thinking on dedicating efforts on full Windows integration for the Android app?
I haven't visited this forum for a few years, and just found that amazing news. I'd buy a Mac just for this if I didn't already have one. Really looking forward, I'm also a long time user of Wenlin, still great but showing its age.Thanks, but we've already almost finished our Mac desktop app (...)

I still use Wenlin for its helpful etymologies of characters. If Pleco has that capability, this new Pleco user has yet to find it.
I can't tell if Wenlin's etymological information is based solely on the Shuowen Jiezi, which of course is one of the oldest character dictionaries (from the Han dynasty):
… or if it's based on newer sources, as well. What is available for Pleco and includes some of the most recent research findings are the Outlier dictionaries you can get as Add-ons. The Outlier Essentials dictionary comes with about 3,000 character etymologies, constantly growing up to 4,000. You can have a look at the demo version. This is their webpage:
The groundbreaking new Chinese character dictionary exclusively for Pleco! Understand the logic behind the writing system by learning how Chinese characters actually work. The Essentials Edition includes: 4000+ characters (4000 total) Detailed explanation for every entry Stroke order for all...www.outlier-linguistics.com
Hope this helps,
Just want to confirm: if I purchase the add-ons for the iOS app, will they also work with the future macOS desktop app?
Hi, Mike. Is the macOS version Apple Silicon-only, or is it going to work on Intel Macs? If it's available for Intel Macs and you need an Intel beta tester, I'm available.
It'll almost certainly support both in the final release, but we might limit the betas to ARM to simplify the build process a bit - anyway once there's a beta ready there'll be an announcement with details.
Also, how do we sign up to be notified when the final app is available?
my inclination is to roll it out more discreetly / have some people stumble onto it accidentally.
