Switch plugged into switch input for Next
(other switch input is Play/Pause)
We have used pushbutton cassette players
since I've been in this field (since
1984!). They almost always have a
jack, built in, to attach a "foot" switch
(or one of the many switches in *our* field
of AT/AAC). Press/latch the
*mechanical* Play button, and now, when the
switch is activated, the tape plays.
OR, you can put a "battery interrupter"
between a battery contact and the cassette
player's contact, and then you plug one of
our field's switches in to the interrupter,
and the tape player is now "switch-adapted."
Enter the CD Player (and MP3 Player, and
anything that operates *electronically*
versus *mechanically*). These devices
do not have a mechanical pushbutton; they
have an electronic pushbutton, and it does
not stay 'latched' like a cassette player's
button. Devices of this nature require
that someone (like me) wires a switch input
directly to the desired internal button
(such as Next Song or Play/Pause).
I listen to the types of devices you need to
be switch-adapted. I purchase a bunch
of them, and find the ones with the best
features, price points, and that I actually
*can* adapt. Then I offer them to
you. There are only a few companies
that do this, and I pick functional
devices and not toys, to adapt.
So, here's my Switch-Adapted CD Player, with
switch inputs for Play/Pause and Next
Song. The feature that I most wanted
was 'bookmarking' where it remembers where
it was in playback when you shut it off, and
begins right there when restarted.
I use the Sony DEJ011.
