The PTN2 is a fantastic way for you to enjoy your favorite audio title, such as DAISY Digital Talking Books, music CD's, MP3 or WMA (Windows Media Audio format) CD's, or audio books on CD. The PTN2 satisfies both people who want the simple operations of the player, particularly for leisure reading, and people who need more complex navigation for professional use.
With a mask cover on the PTN2, the more complex navigation keys are hidden, so you can easily operate the play function. When the mask cover is removed, you can operate additional functions, e.g. navigate a DAISY book by chapter, section, page, phrase, etc.
