So, background: I have two grandmothers, both well over 80, both deaf and not good with technology.
In connection with a dead vision, can't read books and I miss them.
From alternative entertainment they have left only the idiot box, and it is not Gud.
Task: to give them the opportunity to listen to an audio book (in MP3 and similar formats)
— Кейс1: so that they could start and stop the audio. (Play/Pause)
— Кейс2: adjust the volume.
— Кейс3: (ideally) self-selection of books from a small list.
Suggestions to the interface: large buttons rather than the touch screen (they fear him)
A standard keyboard is not suitable because of the small size of the buttons.
Vstrechali you ready solution?
If not, how would you approach this task?
PS I personally look to the side of the netbook + optimus mini three, but it does not solve the issue of Case No. 3. I think there is a more elegant solution.
P. P. S. to Rewrite audio books on an old audio cassette and give the grandparents a tape recorder — not to offer:)
