More like Wish list for me, :blush: 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 . :blush:

Book Port Plus

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

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, :blush: 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. :blush:

Four its more audio then e-book

:bouncy:Book Port Plus its in, :shriek: 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.
