Andrew, There are several companies that preprint checks that will work. Deluxe Business Forms is the largest company. In most cases your bank may well deal with them. They are one of the providers of the raised line checks that you just heard about. If that is what you would be interested in go to your bank and ask. If they say that they don't have such things you can ask them if they work with Deluxe. Bob ----- Original Message ----- From: "Andrew J.

I will look into this. I love the checkbook program. I have been looking for something like this for a long time. I remember back in the dos days, there was a talking checkbook by the Commissioner of the Mass Commission for the Blind in Boston. It was the greatest program with tons of features for the blind. This Money Talks program is in the same league. Thank you.

Andy, Instead of Quicken-type checks which are pricy, there are two alternatives, one costing very little more than wallet checks. 1. Most banks sell a business-sized check in a check-book. This check is almost as big as a business envelope. It usually does not have a stub to tear off. Its fields are just farther apart. This check option allows you to keep track of check number yourself because remaining checks stay in the book. 2. A more costly, but neat, option is the large print, raised-line check. This is the same size as the business check above, but has raised lines and raised print. Money Talks supports this as well. These checks are in a book. Most banks have them, but they don't know it until you go through the bank's big book of check types and styles with them ― and then they are amazed to find it there. It is a more expensive option, though. Personally, I don't like the 3-to-a-page checks because I have to keep track of partial pages of checks when I write only one. However, a number of people, some on this list, find such checks to work well. Terrie Mary T.
