More like Wish list for me, sorry to <sinp> your post to bits.

So do I, I'm thinking of getting a reader for mostly MP3, and you can take note with it too. Wish I had today! There are a few more there at .

Book Port Plus

IF more is needed!
Braille+ anhttps://shop.aph.org/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10001&catalogId=11051&krypt o=w%2FE%2FZ6s4BbM%2B9n7juIEMzq5sf2tB4zwdpUGzx6Kgrj b5S2cJ4ZGpqRlF5Xt0Ps94syIm1JPugXdL%0D%0ARVB04Dkn3j KB5lIVLjiNb7qjARQfymUZf%2BcLOCRL6fizri10YIDpJrg1dg wg9Z8TZPsQ4%2BRQ3%2FhG%0D%0AikxGljy4t%2BH0P5GDPzIG GP%2Fbhh0VEfubtxZ4w7xCmCzk6LZv5sOqQLtB6ijDLhMd2%2F kRawniQPOn%0D%0AVdMgvQp6uDjaXFC6PHfmdqvqi1Qt9tsUBC 31q259SjqNofLzLojICWxd7yzM2blUTpg0nh2iMC8H%0D%0AhE lKRUbslJaH9ccfCRCb4QShXfXVr0BKFSXVnpmWG8TLGX9Sm4Kk jYDRp6Lu6%2BvmNeOujM4YSQy5%0D%0ARTwN&ddkey=http:Pr oductDisplayd Refreshabraille 18 Combo Kit

It also has Braille+ QWERTY Docking Station

I've look at laptops and find them not as useful as I like.

I know you e-readings and yes, I think there is another program that can translated it, I was brain storming, web surfing, on sleepless evening.
IF I recall right, Skies of Pern was offered as an E-book/reade loan at my local libary. Never tried it, but I might 'look' into it.

Four its more audio then e-book

Good luck!

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."

Book Port Plus its in, I'm still learning how to understand it. found some stuff by stumbling around it.

Also I have AC adapter with braille label, which helps for I have 'so many AC adapters around here.

The two UBS cords, and the SD card (already inserted into unit), 2g and abut the size of a stamp. I also have the bigger card and carry case to store when not attach to it. Say like I want to get something that is in print into audo format

I'm still learning how to get around it. Its got pitch and vol conrol. you can lock/unlock and it tell you if have it, also which port is for headphone or mic, too.
