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):

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.
