Desktop Daisy Players
Audio book libraries like the DZB in Leipzig, or the Bookshare library in the US, offer audio books in Daisy format as a free of charge service for blind and visually impaired members. The advantages of Daisy format to commonly known audio books are:
- Up to 60 hours of spoken text fit on one CD
- It is possible to set bookmarks
- When the device is switched on it automatically will jump to the position you stopped reading last.
- Comfortable navigation within the book
- Adjustable Playback speed
To play those audio books at home, the Daisy Player PTN2 (Ziel existiert nicht) is ideal. It is robust, simple in its operation and can run independently of a power supply.
