DAISY player now available on the iPhone

Thursday, 7 January 2010 09:13am

The Digital Accessible Information System (DAISY) format, generally used for the creation and distribution of audio books for people who are blind or vision impaired, has now been brought to the iPhone and the iPod touch.

The application, called ‘Voice of DAISY’, enables audio books which are compliant with DAISY 2.02 to be transferred wirelessly to the iPhone, and then played back with all the standard DAISY indexing features.

Cypac Japan, the creator of Voice of DAISY, is charging US$12.99 (approximately AU$14.50) for the application, making it a significantly cheaper alternative than current CD- and Flash-based players for iPhone or iPod touch owners.

Further information and purchasing details can be found on the Cypac Voice of DAISY website.
