Book Port Plus

The Book Port Plus™ is an accessible media player/recorder which can be used to read Digital Talking Books, play digital audio, play internet radio, download podcasts, read computer files, and make recordings.

The reading controls let you read a wide variety of books in both audio (human speech) and text (synthetic speech) formats. Its ability to create Digital Talking Book recordings is unique.

The Book Port Plus has the ability to stream internet radio stations, receive podcasts, and transfer files from the PC to the Book Port wirelessly.

Book Port Plus™ represents the latest generation of accessible media player/recorders. Its small size, quality recording, and unique capabilities make it an ideal replacement for earlier Digital Talking Book (DTB) players, or inaccessible commercial digital recorders. Its specialized hardware and software makes Book Port Plus easier to use, more reliable, and more flexible than cell phones or PCs that might perform some of its functions.
