Questions to ask when choosing a DAISY player

Original Author(s): DAISY team

Consider the following:

  • Does software allow text or audio notes to be added to DAISY files? An external microphone is required to record and add audio notes.
  • Is it compatible with your current computer’s operating system (Windows or Mac) and assistive technologies (such as screen magnifiers/readers)?
  • Is it easy to use?
  • Can more than one person share the software package (students, educators and staff)?
  • Is it easy to find DAISY files or library?
  • Is there a trial period before purchasing the software?
  • Does the software player support DAISY 2.02 or DAISY 3 format or both?

The list of DAISY software players is provided on the DAISY Consortium website.
