    how can i read the text file to check the letters.
    The Scanner class has some easy to use methods you could use to read the lines of the text file into Strings.
    Then the String class has some methods you could use to get at the individuals characters in the String.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
