Hi Jamie.
Well, with Kurzweil it reads it the way its written, so if there is an error, it is very obvious to us because it mispronounces the word. Oh well, such is life, smile.

Hi Julia, I don't know if the errors will detract from the reading experience. I'm not sure how you read. I know that most sighted people read errors as what it is supposed to be. The brain trains the eye to see what is supposed to be there and not what is actually there. That's why proofreading is so hard for me, I think. Sometimes I will read a book then scan it and find all kinds of things I didn't see in the original reading. But Harlot Queen has a few things like childen for children, competely for completely and one that may not be an error, rebuillt with two t's instead of rebuilt. That may just be the British way of spelling it. And many other things of course.
