Hanzi Quiz 0.3.1 reviewDownload
Hanzi Quiz randomly generates multiple-choice questions from a list containing Hanzi (Chinese characters), Pinyin (pronunciation), and English. Questions and choices can be from any category.
What's New in This Release:
With the v0.3.1 release, the choices are even less random: You won't see the answer to the question you just saw as a choice in the next one. Or the one after that. After all, they'd be too easy to eliminate. Towards the end of the quiz I have to start recycling answers, but you're more likely to have forgotten that you've seen them by then.
The other improvement in v0.3.1 is that it will now work in Mac IE 5+ (although you need to install the appropriate font to get all the pinyin accents). I had no idea that this didn't work until I visited my family this past Christmas. Argh! All these browsers have different quirks. (I hear Hanzi Quiz is hosed on Safari. That won't be fixed for a while.)
Version 0.3 was an extensive re-write of the prior version (0.2a), using DHTML and Unicode.
While the 0.3 series is light-years beyond the 0.2a version, it does require a modern browser. Either Mozilla or its commercial variant Netscape Navigator (version 6 or greater), or Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5 or greater will do. It looks like your current browser will work.
If, for whatever reason, you want to to stick with the older, non-DHTML version 0.2a, you can find it here. I hope everyone will use the shiny new one, though.
