Hi Nicki,
I would suggest something like the IAudio. I know that in Dublin a certain
store will supply with speech loaded. This unit behaves like a hard drive
and you make your own folders with windows explorer or Dos. When you have
all your music arranged on it you run a program in the root folder called
Voicebox. This makes the unit call out all the file names as you arrow up
and down. Have one and wouldn't be without it. 
They come in 20g, 30g and 60g hard drive sizes. There are different models
but you have to be careful that the rockbox software can be put onto it. 
I have an IPod as well but while this has speech as well it is very messy to
set up if you are putting on previously ripped cds or downloaded mp3s. It
makes a mess of folders, etc. If you rip cds through Itunes and put them
onto the Ipod it works fine. 
Regards
Aedan.

hi everyone
i joined this list  as i think it's going to be the best way to get a
question answered about accessible mp3 players/ipods I'm off to Australia
for 6 weeks in September - and would like to take alot of music and cd's
with me i currently have 2 olympuses - which i can download audible books on
to - but as yet, have not fathomed out how to put cd's on them i had an ipod
- but its broken - so now i'm hoping to get an accessible mp3 player/ipod or
similar that will hold  alot of cd's and songs approximately 500 plus songs
can anyone  advise me on the easiest thing to buy - i am really not good at
learning new technology - i did work out how to do things with olympus and
audible - but only through following the braille instructions laboriously
thanks in anticipation from nicki
