[access-uk] Re: daisy software players & mp3 files

James, on Calibre going digital, well, I've Googlesd on this and nothing has 
come up.  I too would be interested to hear what's afoot here, if anything.

I am also wondering if there is much sign of movement in production of MP3 
books for the market, but I will start another thread on that subject.
