DOCUMENT INFO
Description: In an age when most information is transmitted digitally and most digital information takes the form of words and letters projected on a computer monitor, the visually impaired may often feel hopelessly and helplessly left out in the cold. The National Information Standards Organization is taking efforts to ameliorate this all-too-common problem by launching the Digital Accessible Information SYstem (DAISY) Digital Talking Book, a centerpiece for a free, downloadable plug-in to provide feature-rich, structured information for individuals who are blind or print-disabled. The DAISY standard is the only standard that deals directly with accessibility. In a DAISY book, the audio is synchronized with the textual content and images, providing an accessible and enriched multimedia reading and learning experience.
