#atia2010: RFB&D Developing DAISY Players for Windows, Mac, iOS

Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic is planning to greatly expand the ways one can listen to their audio content in the coming months. First, they are aiming to launch their DAISY player for Windows and Macintosh users within the next month. It will be free to individual RFB&D members, and incidentally individual membership to RFB&D is free to those with a qualifying disability. The player is being developed by GH, LLC, who has produced commercial DAISY software previously. Perhaps the bigger news is the pending release of an audio DAISY reader for iOS devices. This product has been through beta testing and could be released within the next 2-3 months, according to a booth representative. The initial version will support audio DAISY files with possible support for text DAISY in a future release. We are unsure of any plans to allow for the DAISY software to play books other than those from RFB&D.
