New Contents for Portable Learning Device

Seiko Instruments this week announced new English language learning contents for its "Dr. VOICE neo" audio player/electronic dictionary. The five new cards, which plug into the player, contain a huge range of contents, including English vocabulary, idioms and listening series from sources such as Obunsha, CNN/Asahi Publishing, and Oxford University Press. Two of the cards focus on the new English listening section of the national university entrance examination, which is set to start next January. The OUP card contains no less than 100 titles from its Bookworms series of readers. The device, which can also be used to play MP3 music files, is being sold coupled with the individual cards. The sets are priced between $yen;48,000 and ¥54,000. In October, Seiko is also starting a free online service for users of the device that will allow them to download English conversation video.
