So. . . I look forward to seeing how this is done and giving it a try. You are very adept with Etoys, I hope I can understand what you are doing.

So I figured out how to read in a paragraph of text and split it into separate words I can highlight as I read.  Still need to play around a bit to handle the different fonts/sizes and kerning.

Each word is its own Text object embedded in a Rectangle which "highlights" the words as I read.  I set the "highlight timing" by using the keyboard as I record the sound.  Then make minor adjustments as needed.  This will play fine in reading the whole sentence/paragraph.

But I want the user to be able to click on a word and hear that word spoken. Rather than re-record each word, I would like to be able to play a snippet of the recording.

So... How do a play a sound recorded in Etoys from time A to time B?
