My wife and I use BP several hours a day.
She will only read Audible materials. I use text or Web Braille about a
third of the time, mostly magazines and reports.
I was never a fan of Double Talk.  It sounds better now then when I
first heard it--It soundeded like Captain Nemo at the bottom of the
I wish you could speed Audible on the fly like the text files although I
haven't tried doing it during transfer to Audible files.
We never have tried MP3 files.

I use my BP every day, for at least an hour or two.  Much more on
weekends.  I read books with text-to-speech most of that time, but I do
also listen to some music.  I am one of the very few who prefers the
DoubleTalk--or almost any synth--over a human narrator, so I don't
listen to many audio books.

I was wondering if people could give me feedback on the following

What percent of the time do you use text-to-speech to listen to books or
But percent of the time do you listen to music MP3's?
