Gary’s Newest Toy

Gary just bought himself a new reading machine. They get smaller all the time and he’s all excited about this one from the American Printing House for the Blind called Book Port Plus. It wasn’t cheap, but when you can’t see, it is worth it.

It reads “Talking Books” (that is, books and magazines recorded specifically for the blind by the Library of Congress), regular audio books (those commercially available to everyone), it does speech synthesis of .pdfs and webpages, Word files, and all of the out-of-copyright books on Project Gutenberg. Besides that, it will music CDs, if you know how to rip them and upload them (he hasn’t tried that yet).
