Description of Research Report: Enhancing Digital Access to Learning Materials for Canadians with Perceptual Disabilities: A Pilot Study

DAISY (Digital Accessible Information SYstem) Digital Talking Books represent an advance in learning technology for those who are blind, visually impaired, or print-­disabled. Digital Talking Books created with the DAISY standard have the capacity to combine human or synthetic voice narration with digitized text, offering the advantages of electronic publishing and improved navigation capabilities. When a DAISY book is played using DAISY-playing hardware or software, the reader may move directly to a heading (for example, a chapter title or subsection heading) or to a specific page, depending on the access points included when the book is produced.
