Steve that is very helpful indeed. I cannot be expected as a member to respond 
to a generic advert amd when I contacted the RNIB I was duly informed that the 
offer was now closed since 20 February. I would have no problem offering 
feedback to the RNIB Talking Library.

That's not quite true Elanor,  I am almost positive that there was a forwarded 
email to the Access List from the RNIB Arena list.  This invited TB members to 
be involved in the pilot.  The requirement was that you had an internet 
connection and they were offering a new PTX1 player to 1000 members.  You were 
to mail them with your details and at the apropriate time, they'd basically 
pull out the first 1000 names who contacted them.  As it was, the take up 
wasn't as much as they'd anticipated so they only gave out in the region of 850 
players.  Now, I'm not sure if they would exchange a player now or not but 
you'd need to contact them.  Another requirement was that you'd need to be part 
of the testing group and offer feedback back.

Hope that helps.

  I am wondering how many members on this list use the RNIB Talking Book 
Library and ow many of those members were contacted about the new type of 
Talking Book machine which can be used with USB Flash Drive.  I understand that 
there is a pilot going on at present with regard to this machine but equally I 
understand that no existing member of the library will be entitled to one of 
these new books, only new members will receive them.  For those of you in the 
pilot, what do you think of the machine and out of interest did the Talking 
Book Library contact you directly about this pilot scheme or did you hear about 
it through Read-on, the Talking Book Library CD sent out to members.
