[Athen] Question about the Telex Scholar Plus

Wish I could help. Our Telex Scholars were POS's that we dumped as soon
as they broke (within 60 days of purchase). Worst piece of adaptive
technology I've ever had my hands on. We had trouble with them being
able to read RFBD daisy books, most of our students brought the units
back and asked for something different. They hated them too.

> Hi All -


> Part of the fun of running Digilife is buying a variety of players and

> putting them through their paces. Unfortunately, this is not always a

> jolly time.


> Case in point is that we have a client who requested DAISY files for

> use with a Telex Scholar Plus. This prompted us to add one to our

> inventory so that we can quality control the output.


> However, we simply cannot get the Telex Scholar Plus to even recognize

> the DAISY book burned to CD let alone read it. We have tried several

> methods of building DTB but no avail. The player reads MP3 and Audio

> files just fine so we know it is not a faulty unit.


> I have seen these units play RFB&D files just fine but cannot get it


> read the ones we produce.


> Anyone have suggestions? Feel free to contact me off-list.


> Thanks --- Dann
