Bookshare is an online community that enables people with visual and other print disabilities to legally share scanned books. It is designed exclusively for the use of the blind and other individuals with print related disabilities. Bookshare.org has been in operation since February, 2002, and was created by Benetech (formerly Arkenstone).
NISO/DAISY 3 is the digital talking book standard, supported by many leading libraries for the disabled worldwide. It provides the capability to distribute books digitally with powerful indexing and bookmarking to makes it easy to move quickly from one part of a book to another.Because of constraints on storage and network capacity, early in its life, Bookshare.org’s DAISY books contain only the text portion of documents. For members who wish to listen to the books, DAISY format book reading software with built in text-to-speech is included with membership.
From within Read2Go, you can browse, search, download, and read books directly from Bookshare using your Bookshare membership, as well as read DAISY books from other sources. The app gives you full control over visual choices for font size and color, background and highlighting color, and text-to-speech preferences. Read2Go features word-by-word highlighting for multi-modal reading.
The DAISY Consortium develops, maintains and promotes international DAISY (Digital Accessible Information System) Standards.
DAISY digital format assists people who, for various reasons, have challenges using regular printed media. DAISY digital talking books offer the benefits of regular audiobooks, but they are superior because DAISY includes navigation.
