I've pasted in a text description of the iAudio x5 layout, which can be used
in the manual for those of us with less than perfect sight!

Let me know if anything is inaccurate or otherwise wide of the mark.

See below for content:



Text description of the iAudio x5

Place the player on a flat surface in front of you with the thicker part of
the machine facing away.

1. The top surface

Roughly 1 third of the upper most surface of the player is taken up by the
screen. This is found at the end furthest from you.

Directly below the bottom right corner of the screen is the five way joyce
This can move up, down, right, left and can also be pressed.
When the joyce stick is pressed this selects a file or menu option.

2. The right edge

Moving from top to bottom or from furthest to nearests the following
controls are found:

The microphone jack: used with an external microphone.
The power switch: This is a rocker type switch. Use your nail to lift the
switch and then release it and it will return to its original position.
record botton: Used to start recording and for activating the main menu.
play/pause/stop button: self explanatory

3. The left edge

Moving from top to bottom or from furthest to nearests the following
controls are found:

the headphone jack
The OTG USB slot: This is accessed by removing a small piece of metal
attached to a short string from the slot. You may need to use your nail to
remove the piece of metal.

4. The bottom edge

There is a small connector found on the bottom edge, into which you put the
mini dock. When you first receive the player this connector may be
protected by a small strip of rubber which can easily be removed.

 5. The mini dock

The mini dock is a rectangular piece of plastic which is attached to the
bottom of the player and which provides extra connections to the player.

Moving from left to right along the bottom of the mini dock the following is

AC power adaptor jack: used for recharging the player
USB slot: used for attaching a USB cable
line in/line out jacks: used for attaching line in/line out cables.
