Overall comments on GCompris - there was lots of positive reinforcement for
learners which was good to hear (literally hear),  impressed by this work.
Few times the words in the help and instructions and names were on top of
each other, like it couldnt fit all the writing in the box so would overlap.
Bit slow to open and close each game but still very cool. Thanks for all the
effort put in here so far.
