The new portable digital audio book player, Book Sense, lets users access information for education, information, and entertainment. Students can access school textbooks, people in the workplace can stay current with journals or business magazines, and anyone can enjoy newspapers, favorite novels, or a bestseller. With a comfortable feel when held in your hand, Book Sense is very easy to use. Weighing only four ounces (115ong), it is portable and powerful and easily fits into a shirt pocket, backpack, or purse, so you can take it anywhere. Two models are offered his Book Sense and Book Sense XT. Both models play audio files, DAISY content, and have an FM tuner, Secured-Digital (SD) memory card slot, and built-in recorder. The media player supports a variety of formats, such as MP3, MPBLED, OGG, WAV, WAX, MPC, and WMA. The Book Sense model features an SD memory card with 1 GB of storage. Book Sense XT has internal 4GB storage memory and Bluetooth capability. With Book Sense, you can access digital talking books from providers such as Reading for the Blind and Dyslexic (RFBANDD), the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS), BookShare, and Audible. Book Sense makes it simple by utilizing the USB port to connect to your PC to transfer downloaded books and music directly to the Book Sense XT or to an SD memory card for use in either model. The book reader mode supports several file formats, including txt, rtf, doc, docx, html, xml, and brf. Pricing for Book Sense will be decided soon and shipping will start later this year.
