					Digital Talking Books for the Visually Impaired - December 2004
This project enabled the OPL to build a collection of books using the “DAISY” (Digital Accessible Information System) standard, for the sole use of visually impaired and print disabled persons in the community. “DAISY” is the next generation talking book format, and with a whole book on one CD, the reader can go to specific chapters or pages, bookmark a page, and use an index. The Canadian National Institute for the Blind has stopped producing books on tape in favor of the DAISY format. CNIB reports that the sound quality is superior to tapes and DAISY books can be read on portable DAISY players or on a computer, with grants available to help individuals purchase the players.
