I believe that it was correct.

So does this mean that the text I've recorded is correct? I know they're
both proper words, but I don't know if they're being used in the proper
context. To be honest, it's going to be difficult for me, at this stage, to
get in there and re-record it for one mistaken word. If it's essential,
however, just expect that it won't be done right away and in the interest of
time, I don't know if that's good enough.

:-) I love this stuff.

I copied some text off the web. Both terms are accurate, but have different 
[Dissing Zachary (pdx1zbd)] 
Dysphagia: The most common symptom of esophageal cancer is dysphagia 
(difficulty swallowing with the sensation of food getting stuck in the 
throat or chest). The opening of the esophagus must narrow to about half of 
its normal width to cause this symptom. Therefore, dysphagia is commonly a 
late symptom caused by a large cancer that might not be curable. When 
swallowing becomes difficult, people often change their diet and eating 
habits without realizing it. They will chew their food more carefully and 
slowly. As the cancer continues to grow, however, this will stop working and

they will start to eat softer foods that pass through the esophagus more 
easily. The foods that typically get stuck are bread and meat. The inability

to swallow may lead some people to avoid solid food completely and eat a 
liquid diet. Eventually, even liquids will not be able to pass. To help pass

food through the esophagus, the body will make more saliva. This causes some

people to complain of bringing up lots of thick mucus or saliva. 
Finding high-grade dysplasia (meaning that the cells appear more abnormal) 
is particularly worrisome. If high-grade dysplasia is found, surgery to 
remove the area of Barrett's esophagus is recommended, unless the patient is

in poor health and unable to withstand the operation. Surgery is recommended

because of the high risk that an adenocarcinoma is already present (but was 
not detected by endoscopy) or will develop within a few years. About 
one-third to one-half of people with Barrett's esophagus and high-grade 
dysplasia diagnosed by endoscopic biopsy actually have a cancer that was not

apparent during this examination. The prognosis for these patients is 
relatively good. This monitoring strategy can help detect cancers early, at 
a time when they are more likely to respond to treatment.

I'll claim that mistake. We need to make the corrections. As of last night 
the surgery section wasn't in the interface. So, we need to make sure this 
is corrected before the text is input. 
Sorry for the screw up,

Do't know if anyone cares at this point, but I just realised as I was 
editing my voice over stuff that in the Esophagectomy readings, there is 
"high-grade dysplasia" in the first paragraph and then under the 
Laparoscopic section "high-grade dysphagia" is used. I thought maybe I had 
read it wrong but alas I was reading it as-is...see how much I don't cognit 
what I'm reading when I do this kind of work? 
Do we care at this point (I'd have to set it all up again to correct it and 
don't know if I have the time... which is the correct term anyhow?) or do we

just want to change the type to go with the voice? Or do we forget it all
