Seeing words and hearing them pronounced in Mandarin Chinese is a powerful learning aid. Choose AutoPronounce to hear the words read aloud automatically or manual Pronounce to hear them on-demand.
Highlight Chinese text and hear the words read to you in Mandarin Chinese. Point with your mouse to select the word(s) pronounced again.
Focus on selected words and manually choose when the word(s) and phrases will be read aloud. Right-click and choose Pronounce to hear the word pronounced on-demand.
Loqu8 iCE pronounces over 100,000 words and phrases using
Chinese text-speech voices. Unlike programs that use older,
pre-recorded voices, iCE lets you choose a different voice
at any time.
Loqu8 iCE 6 Standard Edition also supports HanHan. iCE Professional Edition includes HuiHui and HanHan voice support. Internet connection is required for these voices and performance will be slightly slower than the SAPI voices listed above.
For high quality voices with rate control, consider Loqu8 Premium Voices. Adjust the voice rate to match your learning needs: slower to learn the tones and faster when your comprehension improves.
By default, AutoPronounce is enabled; un-check to disable.
Choose voices from the drop-down menu. For users who
appreciate higher-quality voices without a web connection,
Loqu8 offers support for
voices (Microsoft Server HuiHui and Microsoft
Server HanHan). Clicking
the "+" icon next to the Voice drop-down list will open a
payment page for $20 USD.
Adjust the rate slider left to slow down the apparent pronunciation rate.
