The first reply is thankfully the right answer. Go to the site you want to use for the content and they tell you what is compatible.
I would like to get an MP3 player for my father. He loves to read, but his site is going and is having a hard time reading.
I would like to know of what MP3 players are the easiest to use for someone with little to no knowledge of tech and that holds a fair amounbt of space.
Thank you in advance for your help!
Choosing an MP3 is only one part of the equation. You have to consider where he's going to get the content. Is Audible, for example, friendly for the visually impaired? Is he computer literate?
I would suggest that you contact your local library, they can help guide you in choosing the best option for your father. They probably carry audio books on tape or CD for free which may be a better option for him. I'm not sure if you could legally get the audiobooks then rip them to an Mp3 player (hint, hint).
As far as the player goes if you go the MP3 route take him to the store to allow him to play with the various players. I don't know his physical condition but if he has arthritis look for players with bigger buttons. I mentioned earlier check out portable CD or tape players while in the store, if he's not knowledge with MP3 players then he may go for the CDs and tapes.
