Synthesized Voice Readings
A synthesized voice can be used to check the
readings of terms in seven languages: English,
Spanish, German, French, Italian, Chinese, and
Korean.
Some dictionaries/modes do not support synthetic
voice readings.
Chinese reading can be selected for a Chinese
model electronic dictionary and Korean for a
Korean model electronic dictionary only. For other
models, these languages can be selected after the
applicable optional content is installed.
For Chinese, pinyin and alphabetic terms, and some
kanji terms cannot be read by the synthetic voice.
For Korean, only hangul terms can be read.
