Playaway is the newest format of audiobook. It’s the only format that combines the content and player into one unit. Playaway combines a very simple player with digital audiobook content, so virtually anyone – from kids to seniors – can use it to start listening immediately. The Playaway comes equipped with a universal headphone jack, so any compatible accessory – headphones, speakers, or FM transmitters – can be used to listen. Additionally, Playaway sets itself apart from other formats of audiobooks because it remembers where you left off – so there is no need to go back and find your spot in the story.
Playaway is about half the size of a deck of cards and holds content that ranges from six to 40 hours of play time.
