I'm looking at getting a digital recorder. I need something that talks as I'm totally blind and I came across a Olympus DS Digital recorder that's got 1 GB of memory for $199 on maxi aids. It records in stereo, which I want. It says it's got an optional voice guidance feature for the visually impaired. Has anyone used one of these? If so, how much do they talk? I need something that I can edit things independently with and transfer things to my computer independently, as I have no sighted people around to help me. I really like the 1GB idea, but I'd need some guidance with how to operate it and turn on the voice guidance feature, since it says it's optional, I'd assume it's not on automatically.
Thanks for any help you can provide,
