Jim, may I suggest if you can get into the programme, you go to option seven 
on the assistance and join the users forum.  You may get better service 
there.  I have been using Freedom Box for three years or more and find it a 
great product.  Yes if you like reading very fast like Carol then it is 
slower than Jaws.  It is great for beginners.  Stick with it and try Steve 
again.  He should be able to advise and give you the local rate number to 
ring support in the States.  Yes I have had the error messages, but support 
have always sorted it out for me.

Good Luck

Ron
