April 30 ~ Comparing Temperatures ( the name has been changed again!) is finally done ( at least for now), back to Judi for a second review
~ thanks to Judi for all of her help trying to get pause/play to work properly when using narration, thought I had updated the template, maybe not????!!!!
~ all pause/play issues fixed (I hope)
~depth layers addressed when dragging words in sc 3
~upoption buttons no longer enabled after selected.
~ who knows how many other picky little details, documented in the review file.
~ also chatted with Crystal re CAG wording
Helpful Hint:
when narration could be playing when continue shows.

if (this._parent.usingNarration) {
showcontinue(false)
} else {
showcontinue() since this deactivates the pause/play button

}

Also, you need to be judicious about whether or not to include the _global. animation pause in the inti object of the transform class.
There are some things that you do NOT want to be affected by the pause/play button and other things that you do want to be affected.
I hadn't thought thoroughly about this before. Maybe still need to think about it some more! :)
