[access-uk] Re: Talking Book Library

Perhaps someone working for RNIB could pass this on, to facilitate better access to information RNIB could put an internal telephone list on their web site so people could contact: a) The appropriate department b) An individual within that department c) the line manager for that department


Warning!   Do not attempt to hold your breath until this happens.

I quote from The May New Product Guide.

This new player replaces the popular Plextalk PTN1 and
heralds a new phase in the development of Daisy. It is
similar in size and shape to its predecessor but the
button size and layout has been changed, making them
easier to distinguish and more intuitive to use. A USB
port and SD memory card slot provide users with access to
a wider range of reading material. The built-in memory
provides an electronic bookshelf where users can store
their favourite content, and it comes with a 12 month
subscription to RNIB's BookStream book club. It also has
a text-to-speech programme which further expands the
range of content that can be accessed.
I cannot see how it can be claimed that the offer is
closed.

Madleen,

As I understand it, your final comment is incorrect.  I
tried to buy the PTX1 together with one year's
subscription to the Bookstream Book club but was told
that this offer had now closed.  I therefore just joined
the Bookstream club for £50.
Having said that, I read last week in New Products that
the offer is still advertised.  If I find that it is
still current, I will be most displeased with RNIB.

Hi

It's not just for new members.
Ring up talking books and ask I don't know whether you
can still be on the pilot project.
You might be interested to know, that the RNIB sells the
player in combination with the 1 year subscribtion for
the rnib booksite/bookclub for
£195  too

Just thought I'd let you know,

Madleen

Hi  Eleanor

I'm a member and this is the first I have heard of it. However, I haven't had time to read 'Read on', so I am
at fault there.
I was contacted by the talking library some months ago,
but it was just to see how I rated the current service -
No mention of the new talking book machine.

It's a shame that only new members are eligible.  I
suppose we could cancel
then re-join.

Cheers

Barry

I am wondering how many members on this list use the
RNIB Talking Book Library and ow many of those members
were contacted about the new type of Talking Book
machine which can be used with USB Flash Drive.  I
understand that there is a pilot going on at present
with regard to this machine but equally I understand
that no existing member of the library will be entitled to one of these new books, only new members will receive
them.  For those of
you in the pilot, what do you think of the machine and
out of interest did the Talking Book Library contact you
directly about this pilot scheme or did
you hear about it through Read-on, the Talking Book
Library CD sent out to members.
