Now available: Design for Impact by Erin Weigel

DAISY format now available for all Rosenfeld titles

01/20/2014

One way to get your arms around accessible design is to read a certain new book. Another is to work directly with the book’s authors. Thanks to Sarah Horton and Whitney Quesenbery’s help (and gentle pressure), we now offer all Rosenfeld Media books in DAISY format.

What’s DAISY? It’s the digital talking book standard. DAISY is a way of formatting books so they can be read and navigated more easily by people who are blind, have low vision, or have learning disabilities.

DAISY books work on standalone devices or with reading software such as Kurzweil. People can listen to the book, read the book with enlarged print, or convert the text to Braille. Some DAISY reading tools provide advanced options to navigate the book, as well as support additional tasks like inserting notes and looking up definitions.

DAISY isn’t just available for Sarah and Whitney’s A Web for Everyone; as of now, you can log in to your Rosenfeld Media account and download all of your past purchases in DAISY format. 🙂
