Thanks for your excellent software. It helps remove the rust from my code skills and improve speed. The new User Interface looks very nice, especially the buttons and feautres which don't appear until all the characters have been learned.

There are typos in the the latest version 9.1.4. They are on the Setup Dialog Tabs:

___The Morse Tab reads: "Morse Characeter Setup"
_____It should read: "Morse Character Setup"

___The General Tab reads: "Generatl Setup"
_____It should read: "General Setup"

A helpful additional to the program would be a Text Entry Dialog. Copied Characters could be typed and entered via the PC Keyboard as they are heard. After the session were completed, the contents of this dialog could be viewed and compared against the sent characters display area. This would be a convenient way to check accuracy (and errors) than doing so via a window of another program or from a sheet of paper. The program could even do the compare process and highlight erroneous characters in Red, as well as provide an accuracy report of the number of erroneous characters and an accuracy percentage. Users would only need to adjust the display delay of the sounded characters to suit their needs. For touch typists, this would be a most welcome enhancement to an already exceptional program.

A brief help file regarding the Com Port feature and other not so obvious aspects of the program might also be helpful.

Very 73,
