Megavoice - solar powered Bible

I've written about the Megavoice before, and I had a look at one today.

It's made out of quite robust plastic, with the solar panels in the back. The controls are pretty straightforward - on/off, pause, and then three pairs of skip forward and back buttons. They are three different sizes and the bigger ones skip further (to the next chapter, say). It's a very useful way of getting the Bible in people's hands.

Glad you were able to see one in person. JAARS has developed some similar devices, and we're (WUSA) getting ready to partner with Faith Comes By Hearing here in the US to do some cross-marketing initiatives that will provide the Proclaimer (their version of the Megavoice) to language communites that Wycliffe BT has translated. The US audience loves these partnerships and this technology, so it's exciting to see it being used around the world.
