Re: eBooks and Podcasts

The sound is DoubleSpeak; not bad. But audio books with narrators have the narrator's voice instead of an electronic voice.

They usually come as MP3 files. Have you seen the audible.com site?
There are a number of others, which I have yet to investigate.

How is the voice on the book courier?  Is it similar to JAWS as far as
sound?

Book courier has buttons for reading and navigating, and file names
are
spoken. There is a built-in manual that gives you all you need to
know.

You can go online and put Book courier and Book Port in the edit field

and
you will see many sites with very good information as well as user
reviews.

Hi All,
I got an Iriver H320 for Christmas, it's an MP3 Player, it let's you
record,
and has an FM Radio in it as well. It has a 20-GB hard drive, and
you
can
get it from:
http://www.1oel.com
It's easy to use, and the buttons are well defined.

Hi listers,
Just wanted to let you know that adobe 7 and I also believe 6 have
a
read
out loud feature. This is handy if you want to purchase an e-book.
I
have
found that adobe acrobat does not work well with Jaws. I'm in grad
school
and all the research articles are only available in Adobe pdf
files!. I
thought I'd pass it on to anyone so I could try and help. I love to

help
people!.
