My friend has a 77 year old brother who lost his sight a year ago. (Both he and his sister are Spanish-speaking only.) He has not yet adjusted to his situation and spends much of his time in bed, depressed, in a board and care facility in Peru. He finds satisfaction listening to history, any kind of history, but has few resources where he lives. My friend will visit her brother in July so I’ve used Podcruncher to load 100s of hours of diverse topics of history, in the Spanish language, on an iPod Touch 5G and have been helping her learn the workings of PodCruncher and of VoiceOver so she can teacher her brother when she sees him. (She says he’s very intelligent and, unlike herself, has experience working with PCs.) However, my friend is having real difficulty partly because she finds VoiceOver so counter-intuitive and partly because I can’t override all of the labels on some buttons so she what hears is a mixture of mixture of English and Spanish.
Do any of you know of a simpler podcast player than Podcruncher? One that is in Spanish and that can import OPML files would be ideal, but neither is necessary. Or maybe there’s a better solution than podcasts?
Thank you for your help.
P.S. Once I store the podcasts on the iPod there is no further need to 1) add podcasts or episodes nor 2) delete any (although a button to present only unplayed episodes would be handy).
