Hi, Pete.  That sounds like an interesting idea.  I have been meaning to ask 
this question.  Why do audio files tend to have more volume than the 
electronic text files?  Is there any possibile way of increasing the volume 
when listening to e-texts?  I have found that when listening with Big Bob 
that the volume is much better through my Sony headphones.
