RE: Reading Ebooks with Adobe

Textpad was written by Jamal Mazrui. His webpage is
www.empowermentzone.com

however, there is no direct link or anything mentioned about textpal on that
page that I can find.

I dare say it would be. Nonetheless, the download we got is a direct
link.  Guess the sender thought it would save time.  I swear Tom and
Becky are still lost on some of the Web sites I've visited over the
years.  I'm sure the vendor has a Web site, if I only knew who that is.

I'm busy right now so I haven't gotten around to googling text pal, but
are
you saying it's unlikely that I'll find any written information about it

anywhere? There isn't even a Web site where it's explained, described,
and
so forth? Wouldn't that be a bit odd?

The URL sends you directly to the download link for the product. I
gather the documentation is included, but have not actually installed
the program yet.  Back in the day, I was a real experimenter, and
enjoyed trying out shareware and freeware.  However, totally eradicating
unwanted programs in every OS since 95 is more trouble than it should
be, so I now think several times before I install anything.

Benjamin,
thanks for stepping in. But all I was even interested in was a link to
go
somewhere to *read* about Text Pal, and I'm sure I would have found the
link
for downloading it, once I was at such a place. Meantime, I'm still not
sure
what on earth was going on here. When I clicked on a link someone
provided,
which I thought would be a link to a Web site with simply some info
about
Text Pal, I was confronted with a Windows message asking me to be sure
if I
wanted to download a program. I didn't even try to find out what program
I
apparently was asking to download. I just hit Escape, because I was so
surprised.
Now, if you reread what Nicole wrote to me, she did *not* simply type a
P
instead of a T. What she said was this:

-- So you see, she substituted the word Pay for the word Text,
repeatedly. I
couldn't make the mental leap to imagine how someone would confused Text
Pal
and Pay Pal. It was just a little too extreme, the difference, so I
simply
got confused.

Also, what does it mean "to speak under correction?" Is this a generally

British or perhaps specifically South African way of saying "I may be
wrong?"  Also, I have no trouble using Adobe Reader and Jaws to read
.pdf
files. I believe Nicole when she says it troubles her system, but this
isn't
anything I would have thought of. But I guess that's irrelevant to this
particular misunderstanding.

Again, I had not asked anyone for a link to download anything, in the
first
place. I just wanted to know where to go and read about the program.
Just
read. I'm sure I could find the link to download it if I wished to. As
for
Text Pal resembling Pay Pal, I don't know what to say. But it's all
right,
now. I'll just google text pal and find the site where the information
is,
so I can read about it.

Also, I don't understand talking about opening a .pdf file with a text
editor. I never open a .pdf file with Word, for instance, or Notepad, or

WordPad. I open it with Adoobe Reader, as you're supposed. And then Jaws

allows me to read it. I have no idea what is meant by talking about
trying
to open a .pdf file with a text editor. I'm totally confused. Someone
please
say you understand now!hat on earth does it mean
Thanks.

Nicole mistyped TextPal with a T (the free text editor) as PayPal with a
P (the online payment system). That's the source of the confusion.

You can download TextPal with a T from:
