An audiobook player for mp3 files. The program offers speed and pitch controls, just like the machines offered by the library to play tapes for the blind. The program also has multiple file bookmark ability, so it will always remember where playing ended. The program comes with a digital signature, to insure it arrives on the users computer as it was created by the developer. This helps control virus and malware infection.

The program is freeware, user supported by donations.
