Hi Nicki.

From what you’re describing to us, your presumably used to a push button rather 
than a touchscreen experience?  If that is the case and you still want to stick 
to pushing buttons, you can choose from a number of devices which will allow 
you to store and play music and audible books.  I suggest you look at the 
portable devices the RNIB have to offer, which include the Milestone and Book 
sense, both specialist devices which incorporate many features for music lovers 
and book lovers alike.  The Book sense is the best of the bunch at the moment 
but it comes with a hefty price tag, while the milestone is a simpler, smaller 
and more dedicated device for playing music.  If you want to consider an Apple 
device as some have suggested, you’ll need to familiarise yourself with a 
touchscreen interface as all Apple devices now operate this way.

All the best, Ibrahim.

hi everyone
i joined this list  as i think it's going to be the best way to get a question 
answered about accessible mp3 players/ipods
I'm off to Australia for 6 weeks in September - and would like to take alot of 
music and cd's with me
i currently have 2 olympuses - which i can download audible books on to - but 
as yet, have not fathomed out how to put cd's on them
i had an ipod - but its broken - so now i'm hoping to get an accessible mp3 
player/ipod or similar that will hold  alot of cd's and songs approximately 500 
plus songs
can anyone  advise me on the easiest thing to buy - i am really not good at 
learning new technology - i did work out how to do things with olympus and 
audible - but only through following the braille instructions laboriously
thanks in anticipation
from nicki
