I use my MP3 player, and my Book Courier to read books while I am doing
other things like knitting, cleaning the house, or taking a bubble bath.
And the Braillenote is used for work.  And usually by the time I get home,
and edit the books I need to edit, well....

Besides the speaker on the BN is not spectacular where I can purchase an
external speaker for the Zen Stone, and for the Book courier.

Also the Braillenote is not recognized as an appropriate agent for
Overdrive, and I like listening to audio books on Unabridged.

That is why I don't use the MP3 feature on the Braillenote. I have however
used it before for teaching my students listening skills.

Shelley, Because I know you have a BrailleNote that is capable of playing
MP3 files, I would be interested to know why you aren't using that instead. I have never used that function on mine but I'm not particularly interested
in the whole music downloading thing. Just curious.

Yep, mine is the 1 gig apparently, and very accessible.  Mine is blue,
which
is my favorite color.

it is completely tactile and you can easy navigate between folders and
files
with it.

On the front of the unit is a wheel of buttons with one button in the
center.  That center button is play, power, and stop.  Above that play
button is one with a dot on it, this is volume Up and navigate Up,
opposite
that is volume down, and to the left and right of the play button are fast
forward and rewind.

on the top of the unit is a head phone jack and a folder selector switch.

I don't use folders so mine is in the right position.

On the bottom of the unit is a Micro USB plug.

And that is basically the unit.

it is a synch to use and cheap as far as MP3 players go.

Hi,

I think I finally want an IPOD for Christmas.  Before I put one on my
list,
though, does anyone use an IPOD with Rockbox? I'm just curious what type
of
IPOD I should buy, if any?  Will my choice affect how Rockbox works with
it?

Thanks in advance.

Feel free to respond to me off list at loravara@xxxxxxxxxxxx
