We are extremely pleased to announce the availability of Book Port Plus, the 
latest generation digital recorder/player.

superb recordings with Book Port Plus(tm)!

Book Port Plus represents the latest generation of accessible media 
player/recorders. Its small size, quality recording, and unique capabilities 
make it an ideal replacement for older technology like cassette 
player/recorders, earlier Digital Talking Book (DTB) players, or inaccessible 
commercial digital recorders. Its specialized hardware and software makes Book 
Port Plus easier to use, more reliable, and more flexible than cell phones or 
PCs that might perform some of its functions.

The quality components and innovative software make Book Port Plus an excellent 
music player and outstanding recorder. The reading controls let you read a wide 
variety of books in both audio (human speech) and text (synthetic speech) 
format. Its ability to create Digital Talking Book recordings is unique.
