DAISY players

Library members with a print disability* can listen to audio books, magazines and even newspapers with the new Digital Accessible Information Systems (DAISY) player available to borrow from any Yarra Libraries branch.

The DAISY players offer the reader more options than cassette or CD players, with features such as large tactile buttons and simple operation.

They can be used to play the library’s audiobook CDs, including MP3 versions or audio files stored on USB sticks or memory cards. They are also compatible with Vision Australia’s collection.

Bookings for DAISY players are essential and can be made by contacting Yarra Libraries on 1300 695 427 or yarralibraries@yarracity.vic.gov.au

*A print disability can include blindness or vision impairment, or a physical or perceptual impairment which means that reading a conventional book is not possible
