BTW: Can someone in the U.S. please shed some light on the question how
people in the U.S. finance DAISY players and stuff like that? How does
it work? Do you have to pay yourself or are there charities trying to
raise the money or ... And how much is a modern DAISY player like the
newer plextor models? Is it affordable?
Thank you for clarification of that matter!
- Did you folks Know about the Accessible Ipod Nano (4th Generation)? It Uses your computer accessibility settings to read menues, and also has adjustable fonts. The menu reading is actually composed of sound files that are transferred to the ipod upon syncing. Works with Both windows and Mac.

- After all my researching etc., I found the same solution. I received my Nano
4th generation and imported all my songs (after enabling "spoken menus") and
it works fantastic. I can even see the screen using my cctv. But best of
all, the menu commands are spoken and I find it easy to use. I am having a blast
and now wish I had purchased the 16GB instead of the 8GB. But remember, it
is only the "Nano 4th generation" that has the spoken menu accessibility.
