Audiobooks and the iPod Shuffle

The iPod Shuffle has no display screen, so you'd think it would be a horrible player for audiobooks.  And, in most cases, you'd be right.  But if you are visually impaired and need a player that you can operate totally by touch, the Shuffle is a great option.

Unfortunately, it is more complicated to get audiobooks onto than the newer iPods.  I have added instructions for MP3 and WMA audiobooks to the Cheat Sheets section of this site.  I would appreciate suggestions for improvement from anyone who uses a Shuffle as an audiobook reader.
