Daisy audio book player

Have you ever thought about test trialing a Daisy audio book player? These players were created especially for people who are blind or have low vision. They are designed to play back audio books and are very easy to navigate and access because they are produced using a format called “DAISY”. Key features:

  • less buttons to make this player easier to use
  • USB port for downloading eBooks
  • plays both DAISY and CDs

These are only available to borrow from the library on a temporary basis. You can purchase your own Daisy audio book player from Vision Australia.
