See if you can find a blind user with the same model who's happy to swap?

(My girlfriend's been on the lookout for an iRiver H3x0 with a broken screen
for some time now for precisely this reason, but so far we've failed to
locate one.)

Hope this helps,


I own three Windows books, published by O'Reilly.   They are "Windows 
Annoyances", "Office 97 Annoyances" and "Windows 98 Annoyances".   That 
pretty much sums it up for me.
