Announcing: DingLabs Desktop Player for Listening-Reading

Just a quick note to announce the availability of a new tool.

A lot of the best language learning content is not "public domain", and cannot be shared in the DingLabs Library. For that reason, I've created the Desktop Player which brings the same playback technology to your desktop. So you can learn from your favorite material, such as audiobooks.

Another brand new feature is the support for dual transcripts, making it possible to enjoy the full promise of the Listening-Reading method.

The Desktop Player viewing two transcripts: Chinese and English.
To download and run, check out this page: Desktop Player.

Please let me know if you encounter any bugs or confusing behavior.  And thank you in advance for your feedback, I'd love to hear what's missing or what would be great to add.

I invite you to download the Desktop Player and give it a spin. Its beginnings may be humble, but there are a lot of cool things that can be done with this technology. As we share it with others, new ideas will arise and we will all benefit.
