Hi, if I'm preparing to read a bookshare book, I usually remove all page 
numbers to make them read smoother with speech.  Using a voicenote qt how can I 
search for otherjunk characters that may be in the book?  I know how to find 
and replace, but what I need to know is how do I know what to look for?
Hope that made some sense.
