Bud, It just doesn't read the words. I do not make the changes to the default dictionary so it doesn't permanently pass over the words because I am just adjusting for the book I am reading. It works for me, but I am only a reader and not a scanner. Nancy ...Does it actually delete the words from the printed page or does it just not say them as it passes by them?
