I've combed through the posts, and can find a slot machine, and an odometer, but what I need is something that can display one word at a time, but randomly. I have about 20 words, and it will be on an iPad at a booth, so it really needs to be operating on its own. maybe AE isn't the right program at all... But like the slot machine, it just needs to show one word, sit for a while, then spin again, showing another random word and so on. Is AE even the right tool? Anyway, I really appreciate this space. Its helped me out many a time! thx!

Your suspicions were correct: AE's the wrong tool. Anything created in AE won't be in the least bit interactive. Sorry.

What you want is an HTML or Javascript web app. You can purchase something like this:

This will get you on your way. You'll have to do some customization, but it'll get you most of the way there.
