The Milestone 212 and 312 also play the digital talking books from NLS.  I
don't know if that's the one you were thinking of.

    Hi John,

There are a number of players which NLS recognizes.  These are mainly
portable players.  They include the Victor Reader Stream, by Humanware, Book
Sense By GW Micro, Plextalk Pocket by IRTI, Book Port Plus by APH.  The only
notetakers which play NLS books are the Icon by Level Star and the Braille
Plus by APH.  Those two machines are basically the same.  There is one other
player but can't recall the name of it at this time.

Jim
