  • Good empowerment document. I found this software good, but irritating. I had to keep saving the same story, even when I was not finished. Also the audio was not loud enough to be heard (I tried increasing the volume etc). Also, the music was too loud when I wanted voice, so it was a bad situation. I want to enter a comp with my new book and need good software that emphasises text and that give the reader a real buzz with music, audio and text moving around? Any ideas M?
    Thanks again, Marie
