Thanks Ann VERY much for your input.
I wonder, did you have to wait a while after your machine booted up out of
the box before you turned on Narrator, (pressed windows-U keys)?  I am
REALLY looking forward to my new machine and I REALLY thank you again and
would you mind if I write you off-list with more questions?
TIA,
Paul
