Hi Lynn, Thank you for the very informative answer. One last question. How long can you use the device without recharging? I think this is just what I am looking for. Best wishes, Hazel. ----- Original Message ----- From: Holdsworth, Lynn To: bookcourier@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Friday, June 29, 2007 1:04 PM Subject: [bookcourier] Re: New Member. Hi Hazel, Welcome to the list. Of all the gadgets I've ever bought, I'd say my BookCourier has been the best by a long chalk. I go nowhere without it, and I've become an avid reader since buying it. I'll have a go at answering your questions. Anyone's welcome to chip in if you don't agree or can add anything. Here goes: >Does the book courier read text files as well as playing MP3? Yes. It also plays Daisy, TNAUK and Audible.Com files, as well as a few other formats which I can't remember. >And if so does it allow you to read through a book and spell out words letter by letter, Word by Word, etc... Kind of. When reading a text file, if there's a word you don't understand, you can stop the BC and ask it to spell the word. >What is the synthetic voice like? Is it easy recognisable? It's DoubleTalk. I thought it was horrible when I first heard it, but after a week or so I got used to it. >How much information can you store on it? The BC stores its data on Compact Flash type 1 cards, but it doesn't recognise cards that are bigger than 4gb. I think it comes with a 128mb card, but quite a few of us have replaced this with larger capacity cards. >And is it easy to navigate? Yes, I find it easy.

Hi Everyone, My name is Hazel Flannigan, and I am interested in finding out more about the Book Courier. With the idea of purchasing the product if it meets my expectations. Can anyone help me fill in the blanks? Does the book courier read text files as well as playing MP3? And if so does it allow you to read through a book and spell out words letter by letter, Word by Word, etc... What is the synthetic voice like? Is it easy recognisable? How much information can you store on it? And is it easy to navigate? Some of these questions are a bit wide but any help and opinions would be greatly appreciated. Best wishes Hazel.
