So unfortunately that means you can't read an audible book on an Ipod using
rockbox. Oh that's too bad. I own a bookport but the biggest card I can
get is a 4 G card.
*4G? Is that a hardware limitation? There are larger cards now available.
I'd love to have a 20 or 30 G Ipod and take all my music
and books on vacation in one device.
*I would also like rockbox to support protected media however this will not
happen for obvious reasons.
Do you think it will ever be possible for a totally blind user to use a
device such as Ipod with audible?
*Sure. I have an IPOD Suffle 1GB which plays audible contect. It's very
easy to use. You need Itunes to transfer .AA files though. There was a
post sometime ago that indicated that Apple was looking at a voice UI
similar to rockbox but I don't know who posted it and what the current
status is. Perhaps someone else has the posting?
