Once you have unzipped a Daisy text book, look for any XHTML files it contains. These should contain the text, and web browsers should be able to allow you to read and navigate these files.

I downloaded a bookshare book, and the opnly options i had were dazi text options or mp3.  I downloaded the dazi text only version, but I cannot read
it.  How are folks doing this.  It's been suggested that firefox will, but not for me.
The mp3 option won't work, because it's reading various linux commands as abbreviations for other things, and that's not helpful.  Converting to brf is
obviously not the answer either.  I have no html files or options to have it saved as html.
I think I've covered it.  What's missing here?
