.SH DESCRIPTION
Daisy-player reads a Daisy-CD and plays the audio-files.
DAISY versions 2.02 and 3 are currently supported, as well as volumes with multiple books.

Daisy-player also can play Audio-CD's and tries to get CD-information from a cddb-database.
.PP
A list of items on the Daisy-CD or Audio-CD will appear. Press <ENTER> to start playing. When reading of an item has finished, \fBdaisy-player\fP will play the next item and the cursor will automatically skip to that item, so that an attached braille-terminal will display the name of that item.

.PP
The next rows will display the title of the item, the first page of the item within brackets (if there are pages) and the playing time. Items in higher levels will be indented. (Three spaces each level.) When "just playing this item" is active, a "J" will be viewed at the first column of that item.

.SH NOTES
Daisy-player uses the sox-library and the ALSA sound-driver for audio-output. On some systems \fBdaisy-player\fP quits with the message that the soundcard cannot be used. I don't know how to solve this problem yet, sorry.
.PP
When playing an Audio-CD skip-left and skip-right react a little late. The same for commands like 'U', 'D' and HOME.
