Hi Judy,
You can just zip really quickly from heading to heading, or navigation point
to navigation point with a daisy reader.  It doesn't slow things down to
have more things enlarged and bolded.  But I sure see your point about
looking for the title page containing title, author, and publisher.  But it
is quick to navigate from one navigational point to the next on most daisy
readers.  It's the matter of one press of a button to go from one point to
the next most of the time.
Does that help?

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Question on Multiple Title Pages and DAISY

I've got a new question now, after reading the various answers in the thread
on font sizes and the title page. smile.

What happens with DAISY navigation when there are multiple pages in the
front of a book where the title appears as a title-type page, and we make
the title 20 points in size on every one of those pages? I don't use the
DAISY navigation myself when reading a book currently, as I use the XML

But, it would seem to me, though, that making the title 20 points in
multiple places kind of defeats the purpose of having a distinct title page
in regards to navigation? Or doesn't it matter when you're using the DAISY
navigation, and it's easy to zip through from point to point even with
multiple 20 point font title pages?

Is what I'm trying to ask making any sense?  I'm not being contrarian
(honest! grin).  I'm just trying to understand what works best for the
navigation for you guys who can't use the visual cues that I rely on to
navigate through a book. smile.

Judy s.
