Congratulations, Valerie! That is a wonderful gift, and you deserve it. It sounds, from everything I've read on this list, that is the most wonderful piece of equipment. I do have one caveat, though. It does have some kind of spell check thing that E keeps reminding people to use, but it can't distinguish words that are spelled correctly but used incorrectly used in context--at least as far as I know, so on s till needs to read the file. I guess it can be programmed to catch some common ocr errors. E made a list of them which she posted.(I do miss her).
