Cantonese Phonic


Research Centre for Humanities Computing, CUHK has developed a well-known web application "Chinese Character Database" (http://humanum.arts.cuhk.edu.hk/Lexis/lexi-can/). Which stores a huge and complete database of phonological data of over 13k chinese characters.

It is a useful and nice website, however we may encounter some difficulties on using this web application on our mobile devices.

So I wrote this little application, which is just provide a simple interface to access this web application.

You can also hear the cantonese pronunciation with this application.

Recent changes:
v1.43:
- Use MediaPlayer instead SoundPool to see if Samsung/Sony etc devices can play the sound.

v1.42:
- Try to fix the voice problem by reading the MP3 source from another site. I am not sure this will fix the problem some devices met, as all my devices didn't have any problem on the voice (Nexus 7, LG G3 & Pro2), hope this version can help those Samsung / Sony users
