MegaVocab would be more useful if one could hear the word being spoken after selecting the answer. That way, even if we can pick out the pinyin/characters, we still get the sound of the word reinforced in our mind. Also, the Mac version consistently crashes if one tries to select Pinyin and "What's the time?" in MegaVocab. Could you please fix this? Finally, the audio for "incorrect" is almost indistinguishable from the audio for "correct." I don't know if it is the quality of the audio or just bad clipping around the edges of the audio sample. The "bu4" part can barely be heard...it almost seems like we are only getting the end of the syllable or that the beginning of the audio clip is set to a lower volume than the rest of the sample. This should be re-recorded so that "correct" and "incorrect" can be easily distinguished by ear for beginners in Chinese.

Hi there, thank you for your feedback. There will be a new version online early next year, so hopefully you won't experience any problems with crashing anymore. Thanks
