Hi:

Yes, there are plans to have a speaker in Book Port 2.  However, just wanted to 
clarify on a post that someone made earlier that the Braille Plus is a totally 
different product.  We don't yet have any info out on the Book Port 2, but we 
will post as soon as we have something.

Thanks!

Encouraging to hear there will probably be a bookport II. I'm about to 
controdict myself.  It would make the B P much more expensive if they do all 
the add ons we would like; even so, I would like an internal speaker.  Even if 
its low volume, and if you still use earbuds or an external speaker most of the 
time, it's nice to be able to check things quickly with such a speaker.  I find 
the internal speaker on the stream and the ds50 extremely convenient.
