View Full Version : MP3/CD Player for partially sighted person

June 29th, 2008, 09:22 AM
SHORT STORY: I am looking for an MP3/CD play for a partially sighted person. It really needs to have (or be able to be skjinned with this) very large, simple controls and a play list.

What do you reommend?

Long Story: My daughter's drum teacher is almost blind, but needs to play backing tracks to help students preapre for drum exams. His CD player broke, bought him a new DVD player (you cannot buy a CD player!!) that had a decent sized display (not great though). Did not work as the CD jumps when two drummers are thrashing away. Lucky enough to get money back on that. I suggested a "solid state" device, hence here I am looking for a player that has a large display, simple controls and play list (about 10 tracks).

Any help would be appreciated

I'm thinking Audacious running under icewm (only thing that starts) and running in double mode. Just trying to find a really nice and clean XMMS/Winamp skin that would be easy to find the buttons. Anyone have anything.
