Julie, A lot of dialect intimidates me with sight. I scanned and prevalidated some pages for Shelley when she was doing Forrest Gump. I would never read that book and did not volunteer to help with or validate the next one she put up by the same author. That's one reason I passed one of Catherine Cookson's books that had been on the download list for a long time--there was so much dialect in the first few pages, I rejected it (it had already been released innumerable times). Sometimes, if there's some dialect, as in the Dark is Rising series, and I'm enjoying the book generally, I just read it to myself as if the words are normal and not dialect. Unfortunately, you don't have that option with speech, or do you? Can you set the speech for straight English reading regardless of dialect or accents?
