Ideas for a MP3 Player for a Person with reduced Eyesight?
these days I am pondering, if it would be a good idea to try to build an MP3 player for a Person with reduced Eyesight using P2. The person is not used to use computers or mobil phones.
The goals are:
- A machine, that is very easy to use
- Hear Stories. Audio books. So it must be possible to pause and restart at the same point. If the audio is split into multiple files, these must be played in the right order.
- MP3 from SD Card.
- Perhaps have spoken feedback as user interface.
- Have a color display? I have got some ST7735?
- Possibility to use batteries?
(* Perhaps add a radio receiver ? DAB???)
What is clear, is that the DAC capability of P2 would be sufficient and would be an argument to use P2. I would like to do this in Forth, C or Basic. I want to use hardware and software building blocks. Perhaps spend the time to build some nice wooden enclosure.
What I have found so far:
A similar project with raspi:
https://github.com/NicolasBrondin/book-pie It seems to use java script, which I am not familiar with.
Mini DFPlayer https://picaxe.com/docs/spe033.pdf - has some limitations. Cannot work with directories. P2 should be able to do much itself.
MP3 offline decoding with P1:
The library is not included and this was done with P1 then.
Perhaps some ideas? Thank you very much!
