The PTN2 is a fantastic way for you to enjoy your favorite audio title, such as DAISY*1 Digital Talking Books, music CD’s, MP3 or WMA*2 CD’s, or audio books on CD.

*1 DAISY is an acronym that stands for Digital Accessible Information System. It is the format that is being developed as the international standard for digital talking books and accepted at many library services for people with visually impairment or print disability. Please visit the DAISY Consortium web site (http://www.daisy.org/) for further details about DAISY.
*2 unprotected Windows Media Audio format

The PTN2 satisfies both people who want the simple operations of the player, particularly for leisure readings, and people who need more complex navigation for professional use.

  • With a cover on the PTN2, the more complex navigation keys are hidden, so you can easily operate the play function.
  • When the cover is removed, you can operate additional functions, e.g. navigate a DAISY book by chapter, section, page, phrase, etc.
