I cannot hear any sound.
First, just make sure you have a sound card in your PC or notebook and that the volume is turned on. Are the audio features from your other applications also working? If so, you can check whether your set-up is working properly by going through our ‘Setup test page’.

I would like to input Chinese characters into GoChinese but do not have a
Chinese input program. What can I do?
GoChinese is compatible with any Chinese input method and Windows/Mac operating systems provide Chinese input methods. Users can also paste Chinese text into GoChinese.
[Windows users] Should you not have access to an input program, GoChinese provides its users with a free download of Dianpin, a leading Hanyu Pinyin input method. Please select the Dianpin icon to the lower left corner in your ‘Personal Content’ section and download this program.
Random symbols (‘?’ or ‘�’) are displayed within
the text submitted in the ‘Personal Content’ section.
You have either not selected the correct Traditional or Simplified character form before clicking the ‘Submit’ button or submitted text containing both character forms. Please select the correct character form before submitting text in this section.
