Insert the adapter plug into the
headphone jack at the top of the Otis
Digital Audio Player. Put the adapter
into the cassette deck as you would a
cassette. You can now listen to you
eAudio book through your car speakers.
The Otis player takes two AAA batteries.
The batteries in the device may not be
"fresh" and you will probably have to
insert fresh AAA batteries to finish the
book. Just remove the leather cover,
open the battery compartment on the back
of the device, and insert two fresh AAA
batteries. We do sell fresh batteries at
the Circulation Desk for $1 each. For
the sake of the environment, we suggest
you use your own rechargeable AAA
batteries. Also for the sake of the
environment, we have included a DC power
adapter to use in your car.
