This is dedicated to Dora, the Explorer and her “¡Lo hicimos!” We did it!

One of the huge projects that has deleted my blogging time is an iPhone application. I have no idea how it will be received, but we are putting everything we have into it. For the quiz part, a voice voices when the answer is right or wrong. I thought someone might find this interesting so I decided to post it here.

While there are many, many ways to say, "You did it!," here are a few that are used in our upcoming iPhone app:
