Sorry I am a bit off topic. Just curious, on which web site can a person read all about and buy the Booksense? Is the booksense quite user friendly for totally blind people? Thanks for any help on this.

All the best,

I didn't get the stream, because I hated the voices and decided to wait for a new port. I'm absolutely devastated that these voices will be used in the new machines. So, that's it for me, I won't be buying one now.

Oh please, why the Samantha, Tom, etc. voices? PLEASE! Why not just remain with DoubleTalk voice instead, it's better than that! DoubleTalk is designed with Text in mind, has been for many years and you could then also make the device an external USB supported synthesizer with just some additional configuration. Even then a dictionary for words could be added with double-tap keystrokes for changing pronunciation of mispronounced words, etc. Is memory considerations why those voices were chosen? There are just so many better choices than these voices!
