[bookport] Re: How do you use you Book Port?

Hi, I should also have said that I listen to podcasts on my bookport now.  With 
regard to where to get books, I scan quite a lot of mine in, or get them in 
daisy format from the British Talking Book library.  It's great at presetn, the 
weather here is so hot, so I can sit in the garden eating my lunch and 
listening to a good book without having to take either a bulky braille book or 
a bulky daisy player outside.


Regards

Donna

  Hi everyone:
  Sound pretty much like most people use their Book Port to do text-to-speech.  
I'm trying the text-to-speech more often now.  I like the fact that you can 
easily move files quickly to the Book Port.  If most people who've responded 
use text-to-speech, wire so many people purchasing large 2GB and 4GB 
CompactFlash cards?
  Audible and other audio books don't seem to be used that much.
  Here's one more question.
  Where do most people get their books for reading?  Bookshare?
  thanks -- Jim Nuttall

    I can speed that up, and for that reason, I tend to prefer synthesized 
speech.
    Weird, eh?
    I listen at least a couple of hours a day, much more on weekends.
    I have listened to music, and probably will again, but it is not my primary 
reason for having a Bookport.

    So far most of the time I use my Book Port for reading audio MP3 books.  I 
was wondering if people could give me feedback on the following questions.

    What percent of the time do you listen to audio books?

    What percent of the time do you use text-to-speech to listen to books or 
materials?

    But percent of the time do you listen to music MP3's?

    How often do you use your Book Port?

    Thanks for the feedback -- Jim -- Michigan
