      Easy to Learn!

      When there is no book inserted in the player, press any button to hear that button’s function. The built-in user guide can be accessed on the Standard model by pressing and holding the green rectangular Play/Stop button. On the Advanced model, press and hold the white, diamond-shaped Info button to hear the user guide.

      Special Feature!

      The white, crescent-shaped control is the Sleep button. Pressing the Sleep button starts the playback and a timer that will turn off the machine after 15 minutes. Each time the button is pressed, another 15 minutes is added to the timer, up to one hour. Pressing the Play/Stop button will cancel the sleep timer.
