[Blindapple] editing Hello to add Textalker

Hi all,

I'm in communication with a gentleman who created some AppleSoft Dos 3.3
games when he was a teenager in the 1980's. He still writes games today. A
couple of years ago he converted an Apple2 ProDos game he wrote in 2010 to a
modern adventure game language and added screen reader mode to the current
non-Apple version. Anyway, getting back to Apple2 games... I found a disk on
asimov containing the author's 5 Dos 3.3 Applesoft Basic games from decades
ago. How do I edit hello.bas in CiderPress so that I can add Textalker? His
hello program contains instructions on playing the games in addition to a
menu. What he wrote in Hello  starts at line 50. I want to simply add lines
to install Textalker to keep his Hello program as close to the original as
possible. I prefer  not to replace with Hello from another disk because that
would erase the author's game instructions and menu in his Hello program.
Since he is interested in my efforts to make his 80's-era disk talk, I
anticipate he will not have any problem with me distributing a talking
version. I will  of course get permission.
