Online DAISY Players - a painless transition path to the post CD online age of reading
This presentation will present that transition in delivering accessible content to readers. HumanWare in conjunction with worldwide Libraries has long worked to provide solutions for those needing assistance in reading printed texts. Our customers now have the power of reading, not just for pleasure but to inform, educate and advance their studies and careers. In 1998 we succeeded in transitioning from cassette to CD. Once again technology is driving the next transition this time to online content. Our joint responsibility as stakeholders in accessible media is to include our readers using dedicated players in the shift to online content.
