David
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.

Eleanor
