Are the elements in the TOC navigable? Can I go next, next next, item by

Navigating is quite intuitive, the reaction in Jos' daisyplayer is
immediate, I don't know which features it should have more or less than
Listenup, but maybe you can download and try it.
If so, can I do this from within the content? Or do I need to go back to
the TOC to do this?
The content in Jos' daisyplayer is played while you still are in Lynx,
and can switch toanother chapter or so, so you continuously see the
total "menu" of your cd.
In Yannick's daisyreader you are not using Lynx as interface, so you
can't do what you told above, but these two players are very very easy
to install; maybe an effort can be done for Listenup so that more people
can download and install it without having to read any doc or becoming a
DAISY would require this kind of navigation within the structure. Early
in the NISO specification process we specifically discussed this, and
there are supporting documents to describe these things.
In my opinion, the most powerful application in the world can't be
considered as 100% as long as it requires more efforts to install it
than efforts to use it.
PS: Though many books may not provide multiple navigational levels, the
spec does support multiple levels.
At this moment, as well in France as in Belgium where I live, lots of
magazines are on cassettes; in the Netherland they have migrate to Daisy
since 2004; I just asked for a cd, tried one from the speakup-goodies...
but that's all, the goal/my goal was to check if I was able to obtain a
daisy player who was functional and easy to install and to use.
