Slight correction to that Evan. The ones that are made it for the blind 
specifically to in deed usually have some sort of speed control but those that 
are made for the general public that is not the lower incidence population of 
blind people are at their cheapest. Very simple only containing a volume 
control, forward and back, and play stop button. There may be an on off switch 
and perhaps I'm some of the more expensive ones there are speed controls but on 
my standard MP3 player that looks like a flash drive it does not have a speed
