[bksvol-discuss] Re: MP3 Beta Question

Well, frankly, I am unfamiliar with MP3 players in general. The only devices that I have ever played MP3s on other than my computer is the DTBM from the NLS and the Victor Reader Stream. They both have speed controls. I really don't know about other MP3 players.

It's only on the NLS digital players I was referring to. I didn't realize that 
MP3 players did and could have speed control. Thanks for the info

That depends on your player. If you have a speed control you can make it go 
faster. If your MP3 player does not have a speed control then you are stuck 
with the speed you get.

Nono, you all are misunderstanding my question.

I mean, when Bookshare prepares the book for download as an MP3, is there any 
way at all to make it speak faster there, or are we stuck with just one speed?

Hi Jane,
Question. Do you have an NLS talking book player? That is one of the new 
digital talking book players. If you do load your MP3 book from bookshare onto 
a flash drive preferably an empty one. Then, place the flash drive with the MP3 
files on it into your digital player. Note: make sure there are no talking 
books from the Bard website on the flash drive otherwise it won't recognize the 
MP3 files. If you have more than one book cycle through them by going to the 
folder jump option. Once you have found folder jump use your next and previous 
buttons to move around. If you don't have the advanced player I'm not sure how 
to tell you to do that but someone else on here probably can. If you do press 
the menu button until you hear folder jump. When you reach the book you want by 
going through the folders press play it will start playing and you can use the 
speed up speed down buttons to control the speed.
I hope this helps.

Hi Sandy,
I'm pretty sure that they're talking about the newish MP3 form of books that 
bookshare are now doing.  They're trying to read a book!  HPH

Music?  Podcasts?  What are the MP3s?
