A DAISY reader is a "Digital Accessible Information System," and is the standard for digital talking books. DAISY books are typically used by people who have difficulty reading text due to a physical or learning disability.
The DAISY format allows users to hear and navigate written material presented in an audible format.
We now have 3 DAISY Readers in our circulating collection for you to try. The borrowing time on one of our readers is 42 days. We have a small sample collection of DAISY CDs, and can connect you to CELA (formerly CNIB) for more materials.
The devices available to borrow are:
- PleXTalk PTN2 DAISY Player
- PleXTalk Pocket PTP1 Reader/Player
- Victor Reader Classic X DAISY CD reader
