'The DAISY Consortium envisions a world where people with print disabilities have equal access to information and knowledge without delay or additional expense.
Acapela group, the European vocal solutions expert, with a long history and extensive experience of Accessibility issues, brings end users innovative talking solutions which simplify their daily lives, and is proud to join the Daisy Consortium.
The DAISY standard (Digital Accessible Information SYstem), has been designed to make printed information available to people living with reading disabilities and print impairments, at the same time and at no greater cost, in an accessible, feature-rich, navigable format, worldwide.
Using text to speech, DAISY Digital talking books meet reader requirements by providing a level of access that has never been possible before. The DAISY specifications are already transforming the reading and learning experiences of thousands of visually impaired people around the world.
'Acapela voices already speech-empower DAISY products. We have been supporting this initiative since its inception, and we are now very happy to officially and actively join the Consortium. Our dedication and commitment to the Accessibility community puts us in an excellent position to understand and work towards improving Accessibility for everyone. We bring to the DAISY Consortium our considerable experience in providing multilingual solutions to vocalise the printed word which will help promote the DAISY initiative worldwide' says Lars-Erik Larsson , CEO of Acapela Group.
Acapela Group is dedicated to the Accessibility field and works closely and in a committed way with the community to help make information accessible to everyone, whatever their disability.
