comment Where can I find recordings of people reading things now that mp3.baidu.com is dead?
Can you also add if it requires registration? Is the registration free? Are there copyright issues? Such info would add more value to your answer.

You say "was", "used to" and other verbs in the past tense because the site doesn't exist anymore?

comment How does Wikipedia's simplified to traditional converter work?
@DonKirkby Uhm It still seems too related to software. Anyway, I wanted to be clear that this questions is not a bad one (and as you can see I didn't down vote), it's an interesting question to me as well, but I think that the knowledge required to answer is more on the computer side than the chinese side.

So it's a search engine for stories recorded by "normal" people? Was the quality good? Apart from background noises?

Hello Magnetar. Thanks for posting but I don't think your question is on topic, I voted to close. It's more related to how some web-software works rather than the Chinese language. I think it's more fit in sites like Superuser or similar, I'm not sure which one, honestly... :D

comment Are these two form of “I live in…” both correct?
Thank you Desmond. A short question: If I used the first one speaking Mandarin, would it be seen normal by native speakers or would I get weird looks? :D

comment When is the spelling and the pronunciation different?
If you know the pronunciation of "是" (shì), then it's the same in all those cases, look up for example (following your order): 次, 吃, 日, 四, 是, 字, 只.

comment When was punctuation introduced into Chinese?
I suppose so, but that would require a whole new research in the matter, I guess.

comment How do we wish someone to get better?
First of all, thank you. :) Secondly, when you add new expressions, can you add the pinyin to your answer as well? Thanks in advance!

comment Where can I find audio recordings of every word?
Nice update by the way... I can't understand the site since it's in Chinese, but can you look if there's a mention whether the audios are downloadable or not? Thanks.

comment Where can I find audio recordings of every word?
I tried searching for "你好吗", but it gives only the three readings in sequence, not one recording of the sentence... Or did I miss the feature?

谢谢你! Your answer was very good.

comment Asking “what's the pinyin/character for X?”
Brilliant! +1 and accepted. I have a small request: instead of writing "or", can you write the two sentences/questions completely? It would be clearer.

comment Asking “what's the pinyin/character for X?”
Thanks everybody. Huang, I have 2 questions: are the parts between ( ) optional? And when I ask such questions, will they answer me by spelling the pinyin, for example?

comment “Actually” as a sentence-starter of speech filler
I corrected the examples but they need to be peer-reviewed first. I wrote a _ (underscore) where I didn't know the pinyin. Who knows it, feel free to add it and correct possible mistakes! :)
