  Yeah, you are right. The BP is excelent. But one thing. Is either 400 for an 
iPod of 64 GB or a mobile manager for 1,300. I don't about, but I think the 
answer is obvious. The BP is excelent at what it does. But just a MP3 player, 
go for the iPod.

  The best MP3 player I know of is on the Braille+ Mobil Manager or the Icon.
  The units are the cheapest PDAs for what you get and they hold 60+ Gig.
  And they are built for the blind, so they are way the best.
  Please email me off list if you want more info,

  Hello everyone,

  We have several models of Sansa portable media players which have been
  set up with Rockbox, making them talking players and completely
  accessible.

  The menus are spoken as are the folders and filenames.  You can find
  out the time and date with the press of a few buttons and find out the
  battery charge level easily.  The battery charge lasts a long time, up
  to 20 hours on a charge.

  These players play MP3, WMA, OGG Vorbis, FLAC, AAC, AIFF, WAV, and
  more.  They have FM stereo with plenty of presets, and you can record
  from either the radio or from the built-in mike.  You can expand the
  memory by using microSD or microSDHC memory cards.  They also have
  great bookmarking capability.  They come up just like a regular USB
  flash drive, and you can just copy and paste folders and files into
  them.  There's no need for media management software and the
  accessibility problems inherent in most of those.

  They come completely set up and talking right out of the box.  The
  package will include the player, earphones, and USB/charging cable.  A
  quick-start guide and Rockbox manual for the player will be included
  on the player itself as will be a couple of utilities for use with the
  player.

  We also offer several accessories for these players, including a
  leather flipcase, a wall charging unit, and several microSDHC memory
  cards.

  Our prices start at $41.99 for a 2 GB model, and all of our players
  are less than $100.00.  We have 2GB, 4 GB, and 6 GB models.  Shipping
  and handling is free to the US and Canada, and international orders
  are just $9.99 extra for priority mail shipping.  We offer at least a
  90-day replacement warranty.

  Click the links in my signature for more information.  If you should
  have any questions after checking out the website, you can contact me
  at:  accessibleelectronics@xxxxxxxxx

  Best regards,

  Laz

      Hi just wanted to add that I have an ipod 4th genaration. Which has the 
storage of 16GB I mention this because I didn't see that on the list. So unless 
its been over looked or maybe apple don't do the 16GB Nano anymore, well I just 
thought I'd mention it.

      Any iPod touch/nano/iPhone. Very user friendly and they have a build in 
screen reader. Also, iTunes, the program you must have in order to use those 
devices, is very accessible with jaws. The iPod touch comes in 3 flavors, 8GB, 
32GB and 64GB. The nano comes in 2, 4, 6 and 8GB and the iPhone comes in 16 and 
32GB.
