I know of an on-going effort which is attempting to create a Hainanese dictionary of some 5,500 words. It will have 4 searchable indexes:
(1) Chinese word characters, (2) Chinese pronunciation pinyin, (3) Hainanese Wenchang pronunciation phonetics, (4) English meaning.
早上，zao3 shang4, da4 jio2, morning
笨蛋，ben3 dan4, pong1 gang3, stupid
I am interested to know how this can be inputed or licensed into Pleco.
Would Pleco one able to use TTS to voice the Hainanese Pronunciation Phonetics? If this is unsatisfactory, can voice recordings be attached to each of the words?
Can someone explain to me how this can be done? Can this be done in this current Pleco version, or does it need the capabilities in the upcoming Pleco 4.0?
If not doable in this version of Pleco, can this be done in Anki? The idea is that in the meanwhile, the work on the digital hainanese dictionary and flashcards can first be done in Anki, and then imported from Anki into Pleco 4.0 when that comes out, when it does come out!
Although not a new Pleco user, I am not a digital native and I struggle somewhat to be any sort of 'power user'. Please explain like you are talking to a 5 year old. Thank you!
