My institution is considering audio commentaries of exhibits, no doubt a
well worn path.
Does anyone know of a cheap larger non-purpose built mp3 player with simple
buttons and few options to confuse the user.
Ideally it should display a numbered playlist, play one track on command
and fall back to the playlist. Other than select/play/pause/stop and
volume no other functions are needed.
I know some institutions use either purpose built units, or have custom
programming for pda's, however both are outside our price range.
Looking in the local shops produces a maze of differing products, all
seemingly for the technologically adept user and with far too many other
features. Also these products change so fast that by the time one were to
be purchased and tested it is superceded and no longer available.
Any advice would be welcome
