    Another wonderful tool! I’m sure! Unfortunately, at this place in my Arabic skill level, the dialog is “way over my head!”
    However, even at this beginner level I can pick out various words here and there. I shall save the file, (as I do all files received) and use it in my toolbox as I progress toward the ultimate goal ” A degree of fluency, at least comprehension, in Arabic) Thank you
