It can highlight single word, just click on the highlighter button on the control panel, it will change from "S" (sentence) to "W" (word), click again, there is no highlighter at all.

To hear the disclaimer, set Options -> Preferences -> Begin play at the start of "sound" instead of "word". For stoties like Aesop's fables, the introduction can be 45 seconds long, may be longer than the story itself, the feature to read from transcript word is actually good not to overburden listener in the continuous listening mode. Of couse, if one wants to listen to the introduction, there is a choie to do so.

Wow, and soon for Linux and mac. I probibly won't use it do to the amount it would tie me to my computer, but that is a really good idea. Especially for little kids, and people learning a language.

There is a beta version of TaudiobookReader for Mac available from the website, www.taudiobook.com. Also, "The Rocket Book" with picture illustrations is available for free download (signup only). Librivox is a great engaging community, we are planning to make more taudiobooks available for free and a web version in flash with all taudiobooks (sentence-by-sentence synchronization) for free in the near future. You can use it to search for any phrase in any book and start listening right away. Stay tuned...
