Hi, I'm Vikki Vaughan, and today, we'll explore navigating a DAISY book. We'll use the NLS advanced digital talking book player for today's workshop.
If you're unsure about which player you're using, there's an easy way to distinguish between the standard and advanced players. You'll want to locate the round speaker on the front of your player. If there are five keys directly below the speaker labeled info, previous, menu, next, and mark, you have the advanced player. The standard player does not have these five buttons. For information about navigation while using the NLS standard digital talking book player, check out our resources section.
Let's start off by discussing DAISY books. DAISY standards for Digital Accessible Information System. It's the world standard for digital talking books for people who are blind or have a print disability.
Ed: Now that you've had a chance to learn a bit with us, we'd like to learn more about you. Your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley, and your relationship to vision loss. Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you. And don't worry, everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course if you'd prefer to talk through these questions, we're just a phone call away at 800-323-4238.
Taking these few steps saves your preferences so you can continue right where you left off, and track your progress every time you log on. Plus it connects you to the Hadley community, and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge. And last, but not least, it gives you direct access to experts, like me. Now, where were we?
