Hi Brandon and list,
I like the new edition much better.  The menu  is very nice.

One suggestion I would like to see in a future release would be a text file containing the phoneme chart and just a little information about how to use them.  I don’t know how long this list would be or if you have it on disk or just in print, but it would make a nice edition to your disk.

So the disk that I released that had the two programs is now in revision two. There is now a menu, and all programs when they terminate will call the menu again. The same two programs are there, but they now have a bit of intraductary text at runtime. There is a 3rd intro option, which launches a new program on the disk, and gives a bit of info about the other programs. At the end of this, you'll find a phoneme demo, of what can be done using the phoneme mode of the Echo. 

Todo list
1. have each program forgo the startup text after you've run it at least once per boot of the machine
2. add a copy utility to the disk
3. perhaps add a lightweight word processor, if there is sufficient space.
4. Add a program that recalls phonemes from a texdt tile and reads them line by line.

User feedback welcome, let me know what else I should do. I'll give it my best shot, I'm not a coder really, and I'm surprised this is working to be quite frank about it.
