       daisy-player - player for DAISY Digital Talking Books


       daisy-player [directory_with_a_Daisy-structure] [-d ALSA_sound_device]


       Daisy-player  reads  a  Daisy-CD  and plays the audio-files.  DAISY version 2.02 and 3 are
       currently supported.

       A list of items on the Daisy-CD will appear. Press <ENTER> to start playing. When  reading
       of  an  item  has  finished,  daisy-player  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.

       Daisy-player supports the following languages: english, german and dutch.


              One could also give a directory with a daisy structure as argument to daisy-player.

       -d ALSA sound device
              Daisy-player will play on this sound device. Default is "default".


       The  name  and  version  of this program and the name of the author will be displayed left
       aligned at the top of the screen. The name of the current loaded book  will  be  displayed
       right aligned.

       The  second  row of the screen will display the number of pages of the current loaded book
       (if any), the current selected level and the total number of  levels,  the  total  playing
       time, the current displayed screen and the total number of screens.

       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.

       cursor down
              move cursor to the next item

       cursor up
              move cursor to the previous item

       q      quit daisy-player. The playing-point will be saved as bookmark.

       U      increase playing speed


              This directory contains the bookmarks. Each file has  the  name  of  the  book  and
              contains  the name of the current item, the start-time of that item and the current
              level, each on a own line.

              This file contains the name of the desired audio device  and  the  desired  playing
