What does listenup offer more than being able to choose a chapter, a 
page, a cell?
note: I never foudn the wy to install it, why does nobody have made a 
static bin of it or a compilable tarball instead of pointing people to 
use cvs?

Another solution who exist as well in tarball as statically compiled, is 
Jos Lemmens' DaisyPlayer, http://www.jlemmens.nl/

It also uses madplay + lynx for navigating through the cd structure.

but Yannick's DaisyReader also shows the toc, in my opinion its more 
than enough for navigating the Daisy cd.

A good way for promoting a "good" application is also by providing a 
easy way of installing it; well daisyreader and daosu^mauer meet this 
need. But probably i missed something when trying other solutions.
