If you don't want a touch screen, you might try one of the
talking devices that comes from talking mp3 players dot com. The
owner is Laz and I will find you information, if you like. I have
a Sansa Clip Zip. It speaks titles and folders and such. It runs
a little over $100. You will need to make little speech tags for
your files, but it is not very difficult. It is so small that it
can be clipped to your shirt or fit into a pocket very easily. He
has a number of other devices, also. The one I am talking about
is small enough to fit into your hand.

An iPhone would be easier to carry.
Would an iPad be easy to carry with
me to the gym?

Subject: Re: Ipod Shuffle Alternatives?
All I can recommend would be an iPhone or
iPad, which would also let you subscribe to Apple Music if you
iTunes for PC can also access Apple Music,
so you can use it with JAWS as well as on an Apple iOS device.
I know this might not be the forum
for this question, but does anybody out there know of any
lightweight, blind-accessible alternatives to the Ipod
Shuffle? I currently have an Ipod Shuffle First Generation
which I purchased in 2008, and just recently, the battery
dies after only 1 hour! Unfortunately, Apple makes it so
the battery can't be replaced easily. Also, from what I
understand, Ipods in general are going out-of-print. This
is such a shame, as the Ipod Shuffle is the most
accessible one for me, as there isn't a touchscreen. If I
need to get something new, I want something that can be
compatible with ITunes Music, especially .m4a files,
something that can store lots of music, and most important
of all, something that has an easy way to replace the
battery! And, I hope there's something out there that can
plug into my Apple Adapter that came with the Ipod Shuffle
