Hi, Paula! Believe it or not, that's one thing I haven't tried. <Smile> I'm about to scan a book in a few minutes if I can stay awake long enough, so I'll try that before I submit. Thanks!

   Do you have the same problem, if you make the corrections while simply
reading through your document? If not, maybe the problem is specifically
related to the spellchecker and Ranked Spelling. Something in those tools
may not quite be working the way it is supposed to. My guess is, the folks
at Kurzweil will want to see samples of the problem, if you have any that
you haven't already corrected.

Hi, Mary and Paula! Yes, I may need to call or e-mail tech support for
one. <Smile>  BTW, I do have the latest patches for 9.0.

Here's an example that hopefully explains what happens. Sometimes, when
exclamation point is followed by a quotation mark, the exclamation mark
scans as a Capital I.  So, instead of "Mary!" you hear or read with the
Braille display, "MaryI"  When I find it in Ranked Spelling, it appears
I can replace that I with an exclamation mark. But then, after I've
the changes, the incorrect spelling shows up again. The same thing seems
happen with the regular spell-checker. I've tried deleting and re-typing,
doing a find and replace, or sometimes just replacing the I with the
exclamation mark. I've tried saving the changes each time I make one. It
eventually seems to get the message, but it can take several tries. The
first time it happened, I thought I must have just thought I corrected it.
Over time, I've realized that it's not me! <Smile>

Anyway, thanks so much for your responses. Hope my description makes
