The Library is excited to offer a number of DAISY Victor Reader Stratus available for loan! These devices can play audiobooks (and music) via CDs, SD cards, USB flash drives, and Direct to Player for internet-enabled devices!

DAISY (the Digital Accessible Information System) is an audiobook system and player for those with print disabilities. These “digital talking books” offer built-in text-to-speech capability, and allow users to search, place bookmarks, navigate line by line, and control speaking speed.

New versions of DAISY offer Direct to Player, a quick and convenient way to receive DAISY audiobooks! Rather than relying on CDs being mailed or using a computer to download and transfer files, books can be sent directly to an internet-enabled device.
