25 July 2014OTN USB Memory Stick Players



1. Charcoal coloured wood-effect design with two built-in speakers
2. Four large yellow control buttons and volume control dial, tactile markings on controls
3. Remembers the last track played when USB stick is removed or unit is switched off
4. Headphone socket
5. Mains powered or from internal rechargeable battery

We have two of these USB memory stick players in the office for trial.  If any of our listeners would like to explore this option further one of our volunteers would deliver the player (and the recording from that week on a USB memory stick) and show you how to use the machine.  You will then receive your recordings on a USB memory stick as well as your usual CD for the following month.  When your month’s trial is up a volunteer will pick up the machine and memory stick and a questionnaire about your experience of using the machine will be filled in.  If trying out one of these players sounds interesting please get in touch.  Leave a message for our coordinator on 873166 (Orkney Library & Archive) or email: [email protected] .
