Feature suggestion: Chinese subtitles pinyin/no pinyin option

Hi I’m a huge fan of this platform.

Suggested feature: The ability to use Chinese subtitles with our without pinyin displayed above the characters.

Also, the ability to display pinyin selectively by word level so that it only shows up on advanced words but not simple words.

I totally agree with this suggestion. As a native English speaker, it is impossible to effectively practise reading Hanzi if the Pinyin is above the characters because my eyes are naturally drawn to it. English speakers have to actually put more effort into avoiding looking at the pinyin which is plain annoying (it takes brain power away from actually reading the characters). I still think Language Reactor is one of the most useful language learning tools but if it had the option to get rid of Pinyin it would be THE BEST AND I WOULD PAY MORE FOR IT!!!
