DAISY Online for Book Port DT

APH is excited to announce the first U.S. implementation of DAISY Online! This amazing service utilizes the features of the new Book Port DT to provide users the ability to find, download and play DAISY content without the need for a computer! DAISY, or Digital Accessible Information System, is an international standard for the Digital Talking Book (DTB).

The debut of DAISY Online brings Newsweek and Readers Digest—which APH has provided in braille and audio formats free of charge for many decades—to the Book Port DT!

In addition, DAISY Online makes available, to those Book Port DT users who are registered with Bookshare, access to Bookshare’s collections of accessible books, newspapers, and more. Bookshare currently provides access to more than 175,600 titles.

 The Migel Library has now made over 1,000 books from its research collection available free of charge in DAISY format. The Migel is one of the largest historical collections of non-medical books and magazines related to blindness in the world. Those titles, which already are available on the web through the Migel website, will be made available via Book Port DT soon.
