A portable audio player designed to allow a person to listen to Digital Accessible Information System (DAISY) books, music, CDs and audio books on CD. DAISY books are used by people who are blind, vision impaired or print-disabled. Suitable for children and adults.

General Details

Extra product information

DAISY stands for Digital Accessible Information System.
DAISY books enable people who are blind, have low vision or unable to read standard print, to browse through the book using the table of contents and index in much the same way as a sighted reader.
These DAISY books can be read on a portable player, known as a digital playback device or on a computer with DAISY software.
The digital playback device is fully accessible, providing audio descriptions of the function of each button. The player is designed to enable a person to listen to any form of CD.
Links between text and narration, allow a reader of DAISY books to go directly to specific sections, chapters or pages, and place bookmarks. This ability to move around a book is not available with books on tape or CD.
The digital playback devices can be upgraded over time by installing new software.

Method of Use

All CDs have a raised groove on one side, near the hole at the centre of the disk. Insert CDs with the raised groove down. If you insert the disk in the wrong way, the player will simply eject it or give you an audible error message that requires the CD to be turned over.

Materials provided with the player, such as the "Getting Started" CD, will help you learn how to use your player.

The Library provides training for all clients via the telephone. This ranges from basic introductory training, through to advanced features and troubleshooting. Face to Face training may be possible depending on where you live. If you purchased your player from Vistech, they will offer free advice. Basic introductory sessions are available at a range of Vision Australia locations. Call the Library for details on 1300 654 656.
