Fix the Bugs in Zhuyin/ Bopomofo Traditional Chinese Pronunciation
I am using Microsoft Word for Mac 2011 to write my new book, a Chinese language reader. I used the Microsoft Language Register and changed the language to Traditional Chinese. I had no problems with that. I wanted to add a pronunciation guide to the Chinese words because learning pronunciation is a large part of language learning. I encountered all a huge problem when I used the Phonetic Guide to add the automatic pronunciation. The pronunciation of the Chinese words and the tone markings were correct when they were displayed next to the Ruby text. However, the tone markings became incorrect in the Right Vertical Sample display and in my document, too. It seemed as if the tone markings were turned around at a 90 degree angle as soon as I chose the Right Vertical Alignment option in the Phonetic Guide. I believe this is a huge bug in the Microsoft Word system because when I use the Centered Alignment option in the Phonetic Guide, the tone markings were correct. I don’t understand the reason behind this discrepancy and why the bug only occurs in the Right Vertical Alignment option.
