Overview

Mandarin & Cantonese dictionary with Pinyin + Jyutping pronunciation

Based on the Zhongwen extension by C Shiller (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/zhongwen-chinese-english/), this is a fork that adds Cantonese & Jyutping support on top of Pinyin. All features from the original extension and a few extra ones focused on the Cantonese language are available: - Supports both traditional and simplified characters. - Includes both the CEDICT Chinese English dictionary as well as https://cantonese.org/download.html)[CC-Canto] dictionary. - Shows Jyutping and Pinyin alongside characters. - As a learning aid it uses different colors for displaying the Pinyin syllables, depending on the tone of the Chinese character. - Can be turned on and off with a single mouse-click. - Highlights the characters whose translation is displayed in the pop-up window. - Also supports keyboard navigation for translating the next character, the next word, or the previous character. - Allows you to add words to a built-in word list. Words from this list can be exported to a text file for further processing, such as importing the words into Anki. - Includes links to grammar and usage notes on the Chinese Grammar Wiki. - Supports exporting words to the Skritter vocabulary queue. - Zhuyin display can be enabled KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS Navigation N to move forward one word B to move back one word M to move forward one character - eg. it will display the second character in a two character word. X and move the window up and down respectively A moves the window to Word List Alt + W to open the word list. R to save a word to the list. Online dictionaries Alt + 1 looks up the selected word using LINE Dict. Alt + 2 lets you look up the pronunciation on Forvo. Alt + 3 takes you to Dict.cn. Alt + 4 uses iCIBA. Alt + 5 looks up the word in the MDBG dictionary. Alt + 6 takes you to JuKuu. Alt + 7 takes you to MoeDict. T is for looking up example sentences at Tatoeba. Misc S to add a word to your Skritter queue. You will need to be logged into Skritter for this to work. C on the keyboard to copy the text together with dictionary entries into your clipboard. This is useful if you then want to insert them into Anki or your own words Spreadsheet. E to play the Cantonese pronunciation of the selected character or phrase W to play the Mandarin pronunciation of the selected character or phrase Note: For Linux users the TTS is not available using Brave, Firefox, and Chromium, but should work with Google Chrome. To enable text to speech go to `Extensions` (the jigsaw icon on the top right) > `More actions` (three dots on the right of the `Mandarin + Cantonese` extension) > `Options`. On the `Options` page, scroll to the very bottom and check the box for the option `Enable text-to-speech`.

So happy that this exists, as someone learning both Mandarin, Cantonese (and Hokkien, do you think you can add POJ too? :D) Would be nice if JyutPing was also divided into colors depending on which tone a syllable has.

Nice work! I like how it can show both jyutping and pinyin while also including both traditional and simplified too. Ticks all the boxes. Extremely useful.
