comment Are there any free fonts designed to help learn/read Chinese?
I'm working on such font generation, but I've some optimization to do. I prefer the font approach to the extension/add-on as its a wider one. Extensions are limited to one browser or one app. With a font your whole system will display such info

Yep I know the compound approach, I'm looking for a technical solution here (a font family) not a pedagogic.

@Steve that's an idea, not sure about chinese support though. Also I'm looking for a visual-cue to associate glyph and pronunciation

Moreover Microsoft YaHei New is not a free/FOSS font, so I can't based my work on it

Actually you don't need to edit your page source, Firefox allows you to define fonts per-scripts (Western, Chinese/Simp/Trad/HK): Options > Content > [Advanced > Font for: 'Western' ]. Chrome as a similar features through Advanced Font Settings extension (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/advanced-font-settings/…). I'm already using Perakun, but pronunciation is locked behind user action of hovering, you have to hover words by words to get their definition/pronunciation. A font will provide this intrinsically

@QuestionOverflow With a quick test using the Unihan database I got 8119 code point out of 34132 whose kHanyuPinyin field has two or more pronunciations so ~25%. These pronunciations are order by commonality so even if not a perfect solution it does help (at the beginning)
