Thank you. I do have the original
tutorial that Joseph did on my external music drive. I don't
have plex-talk or a victor stream reader but the original
tutorial will be just fine for me.
Pure audio DAISY allows
you, provided it’s been properly structured, to jump to the
start of chapters, sections, paragraphs etc; however, you do
need a DAISY-compatible player such as the Victor Reader
Stream or Plextalk or DAISY software to take advantage of
You need an mp3 player unless you
can look and play the files separately. I haven't looked
at the layout of Daisy books enough to know. the whole
point of the daisy format is to be able to see material as
you listen. JAWS has training material in the daisy
format. You can listen to the text, listen to the audio,
or skim or search the text to find something and then,
listen to the audio. The two are synchronized. There is
no additional benefit in listening to the mp3 files in the
Daisy book as stand alone files in an mp3 player. You
already can get the tutorial in that form..
I should also say that I have
hardly used Daisy material. Perhaps there is just Daisy
material that is almost all just recorded audio. If so, I
would think there would be some sort of text you can look
at that indicates the beginning of sections and perhaps
gives names of the different sections so you can search
for the section you want, then start listening to the
audio at that point.

Re: [nvda] Now available: DAISY version of Welcome to
The audio recordings are in mp3 format,
which may explain why this isn’t working.
I'm not able to read the daisy format
of the tutorial. Do you have to have a special player or is
this a word document?
