your explanation is perfect; it's just everything I see is all electronic
any more, and requires you to read the screen to do anything.

Hmm, Think we have accessible and totally accessible and user friendly
communication gap here. When I say accessible it don't have to talk to me.
If it is friendly enough to use. Like I say I just need to be able to tune
in a station and then use the preset to go to or from the stations I want. I
don't have but a half dozen stations to listen to on FM and even less on AM.
I just thought someone might have known something that would fit the bill ,
That I could cut down on the going all over Tallahassee looking for
something. But it sounds like that I have to do that. I use to have a soney
boom box that was very accessible but would not talk and it did just fine. I
could tune in the FM stations and then put it in a preset and I was ready to
go. I think it had like 12 presets on it 6 FM and 6 am.  It had a tuning
knob and a volume buttons. The presets was buttons not in menus. Maybe this
will explain it better.

well, this is also an fm radio in case that wasn't clear.

you only have to add some battery powered portible speakers, and you have an
accessible boombox!

you aren't going to get anything cheaper which is accessible.  the only
thing nearer to being a boombox, doesn't run on batteries, and is $200
(it'sw the vision free radio).

Thanks, but don't really want a media player. I have a digital recorder and
a iphone and  a Ipad. I wanting something more along the line of a AM/FM
radio like something like a boom box.

Betsy knows more about this than I do, but I know the free rockbox talking
software can be added to a lot of standard media players.  here's a link to
someone who does this for you, and sells the media players ready to go for a
blind person (they seem to be around $75, but I think they're remaindered
and/or refurbished):

http://www.talkingmp3players.com/sansa-e200-series.html


These are the portible kind requiring headphones.  Someone makes a "vision
free" table top of radio for the blind, but I think it's around $200 with
stereo speakers.  It does receive HD radio though, where the Sansa media
players do not.

The booksense sells a model with a built-in fm radio (although it's
primarily a digital talking book player).  if you mostly wanted a digitalk
talking book player, I think it and others can add an fm radio for not much
more, but they're way above your $200 limit.



hth,

Chip
