How it works:
In the upper right corner of the screen is the area where you edit or paste the text for the song.Then put the cursor before the first word of the text and press the play button. When the music reaches the point where the first syllable has to be sung, then press the Ctrl key. The first syllable will be highlighted. Press the Ctrl key again for each syllable to be sung. When you're finished press the play button again to stop the music. The lyrics will now become visible in the large display. The hyphen (-) between the syllables in the words in the large display are not visible but each syllable will highlight separately when you play the song. It is also possible to insert a line at a time instead of words: select insert mode lines.
While playing the words will turn red at the time they are to be sung and the screen will scroll gently. In the playlist window you can compose a list of songs. Playlists can be saved and loaded.

To fix this, find the file srndmp.chm in the Serenade for MP3 folder, right click on it, select properties and press the unblock button.
The default installation folder is JmSoftware. It is not advised to install this software in the Program Files folder. If you did you should always start it as administrator (normal users can't write in the Program Files folder).
