Hello David and others,

On www.jlemmens.nl is version 2.0 of daisy_player available.
This version supports all navigation which is available on a daisy-cd.
I only had, till now, daisy-cd's with versions 2.022 and 2.02.
Daisy_player works fine with these versions.

This new version can also play normal audio-cd';s. It will try to
get album-information from the freedb-server.

The cursor follows your commands so that you have direct response on
your braille-terminal.

Daisy_player uses the madplay-, the SDL-, and the curl-packages,
so be sure you have installed these packages. Most Linux-flavors
provide these on there INSTALL cd's.

   Best regards,
