Thanks for the reminder.

I no longer have a machine since I just use the BARD mobile app, but good to know.

Richard,

 

The name of that special folder for mp3 files when the storage medium contains both mp3 files and digital talking books is audio+podcasts. Note the plus sign between audio and podcasts with no spacing. If only mp3 files are on the storage device, the special folder is not required.

NLS players can play mp3 files, but it won't tell you the name of the file, and if there is more than one file in the book, you will have to be sure that they are labeled so they will play in order.

There is a special folder name, which you put the mp3 files into, but I cannot remember the name off the top of my head.

Call your regional library.

You're confusing DAISY audio with DAISY text. The NLS players play the audio, they don't read the text.

Good Afternoon Everyone!

 

               Would anyone happen to know the format I would use to save a book from Book Share on a thumb drive to play on a NLS player? I was told Daisy, but I tried to play the file on the thumb drive and it wasn’t even there according to the files and folders option on the machine.  Anyone know? The California State library for the Blind doesn’t have a way to contact them by phone, and I have e-mailed already. Thought I would try all avenues.
