If the play button is pressed again to hear the senatence another time the keyboard diapears
This is very frustrating and makes it to much work to be usefull

I find it simplest to bypass their keyboard and use input tools.  For Hanzi, I use Google input tools through Chrome.  I found some tool for entering Pinyin as well.  Here is a link to a previous discussion about Pinyin input:


I use this:

Oops - I spoke to soon.  What I just described use to work.
 Now it doesn't work with the new edition.  I just tried
"Write It in Hanzi" and was surprised the keyboard kept going away.
 I would much prefer that keep it up once I bring it up.
 That is what they used to do.

For both "Write It", just bring up the keyboard since we are always
going to need it.  Also, it would really be good if you could
allow us to use the input tools that we have installed on our
computer.  I use Google Chrome and I should be able to use the
Hanzi input tool but I can't even though I have it on right now.

Hi Robert, 

That's odd - I'll get the IT team to have a look at that. Thanks for letting us know!
