How to display Pinyin in Word on a Mac?

Posted by DaveCragin December 26, 2012 in the Group General Discussion.

In Windows XP, you can highlight characters and Word will give the pinyin for each.

Is there an easy way to do this with Word on a Mac?

I set up the Mac so I can enter pinyin to type hanzi.  I need the reverse, i.e., for Word to display pinyin for hanzi.

(This works as a good study tool, i.e., when I get an e-mail in hanzi, I first try to read the characters.  If I can't, I copy it into Word and read the message in pinyin.  This way, I'm thinking in Chinese.  The last resort is google translate).  

(if you need instructions on switching in & out of hanzi in Windows, I can provide it.  It's easy & requires no extra software. 很方便).  

谢谢!
