You seem to be describing the standard Jaws commands for changing speed on 
the fly.  Are we talking about the same thing anymore?  I'm confused.  Maybe 
you're saying that those Jaws commands have been incorpirated into the FS 
Reader's controls?  I know you can speed it up or slow it down, but I didn't 
remember which keystrokes I heard the man say were the ones for this.

Thanks.

I knew I had seen how to increase rate...
Increase Ctrl+PageUp
Decrease Ctrl+PageDown
Normal Ctrl+Shift+N

I think alt page up or down will skip a page in FS Reader.

thank you very much!  Interestingly, the first few are just like the
commands used for audible.com's desktop player.  But I'm not sure how
most
of these things are going to help me skip from section to section once I
get
something playing from the Getting Started book or whatever it was.
I'll
have to review the structure of that table of contents in the help
section.
meantime, thanks a lot.  I'll refer to these more as I go forward.

Go To Page Ctrl+G

Subject: FS Reader key commands


I'm just beginning to delve into the Daisy format training material for
the
first time.  I approached it through the Help Menu of Jaws.  I got the
table
of contents for this material to open, chose a book, or topic, and began
playing it automatically with the FS Reader.

However, except for being able to pause and restart play, which I
managed to
catch from minutes of listening to introductory material that was so
repetitious and pleasantly droning that I couldn't retain much of it, I
don't know any commands to speed it up, fast forward or reverse, slow it
down, skip around the material, and so forth.  I would really prefer to
just
read this information somewhere in Jaws, not sit and wander aimlessly
through those folders unable to actually control the reading.  Again,
this
may not be the way others feel, but what are supposed to be the
introductory
explanations recorded in the help area were nearly impossible for me to
pay
attention to, let alone learn the basics from.  Everything wound up
muddled
in my brain and is quickly evaporating.

Does anyone know if there's a text file somewhere that introduces the FS
Reader?  I would love to be just reading most of this in Jaws, so that I
could later find a book I was really interested in amidst all the
training
material, open it and use the FS Reader skills I learned from reading a
text
explanation.

Any help from experienced folks, here?  thanks.
