Chinese reader, editable dictionaries (character/word), autolookup, smart review.
Chinese Toolbox helps you learn Chinese while you read online or digitized Chinese texts that are interesting to you. Basically, you learn to read Chinese by reading what you want, whether it be sports, the arts, news, space exploration, etc.
Chinese Toolbox is a fast, Windows-based, Chinese reading assistant for reading through simple copy and paste. You copy the text you want to read and paste it into the reader window.
As you read in Chinese, the system allows you to effortlessly mark characters you already know simply by pressing the spacebar. Those characters are then marked as “known” (or recognizable), and they appear in the reader in gray to distinguish them from characters you don’t recognize.
In other words, they are marked for unassisted reading. In addition, this application will not automatically display the meanings of the characters you marked as known.
If you happen to forget the meaning or pronunciation of a known character, simply press the spacebar again to show the dictionary entry for that character. Eventually you should begin reviewing characters previously marked for unassisted reading.
You can review characters either by “date” or by “levels”. The date system allows you to review characters you haven’t seen for the longest period of time. The “level” system allows you to review characters according to your degree of understanding.
