    Default Freeware for reading Mandarin

    I have a software that displays mandarin characters but it come out in jibberish so i was wondering if anyone knew of any freeware that would allow me to do so?

    if you install the chinese font sets in regional and language options that should fix the problem.

    Hi, is there a software that reads out chinese characters? Will be quite helpful.

    Maybe something like... U copy the chinese characters into clipboard, then run the software, it'll read out the characters.

    windows XP support chinese language.

    Go to Regional and Language Options -> Languages


    Go to Test services and input languages and Supplemental languages support.

    Yes, HansVision 汉神 can do that. You just point your mouse to the Chinese character, it will read it to you, and it also display the meaning of the character in English.
