Yes, last night wasn't great. I slept about
3 hrs, which I suppose isn't all that abnormal for me, but it's still icky. Although this bad week has actually allowed my doc to see my eye nice & swollen and discolored today - doesn't it always seem that whenever we see the doc, it's on our good days? It certainly hasn't sunk in that the semester is over yet! As for the device, I think I know what you are talking about
! It doesn't convert text to audio though
, I think you can just download a bunch of books onto it & read them all on one screen. The device that I have is a Nokia phone (I forget which one, but the software only works with one type of phone) with KNFB Mobile Reader software. It allows me to use the phone's camera to take a picture of text, such as the page of a book, and then it uses optical character recognition to read me back the text (in a lovely synthetic voice, but it's not too bad), while displaying the text on the screen. It is great! The only thing that I dislike about
it is that it is slow to download the picture & convert the text to audio, so I only use it as a "back-up," for when I can't read on my own, as it takes about
twice as long to go through and download everything & then play it back. But it is useful, and I am glad that I got it! Thanks for thinking of me! I often think of others here, including you!
