Online Daisy Platform 

by Sensotec  

Online Daisy is an internet platform for distributing Daisy books. Thanks to the online bookshelf, you have immediate access to the publications.  

This platform consists of reading apps (Daisy apps) and a DODP server 
to distribute Daisy publications.


DAISY books

Digital Accessible Information System 

This is the worldwide standard format for audio books for people with a reading disability: blind or partially-sighted people and people with reading disorders such as dyslexia.

An audio book is converted to an e-book in MP3 and XML.
A Daisy book has advanced features in addition to traditional audio books.
Users can search, place bookmarks, navigate line by line, and control speaking speed without distortion. Daisy also provides auditory access to tables, references and additional information. It thus enables visually impaired listeners to navigate through sometimes complex books.

DODP

Daisy Online Delivery Protocol   

The Daisy Online Delivery Protocol is the universal protocol for distributing online books. Both streaming and downloading are possible via this protocol on DAISY players, mobile devices and computers. Many organisations and libraries already use a server with the DODP protocol. As a user, you log in and will see all available publications. In addition, you can read the same publication simultaneously with several users without any problems. The reading history of the user is kept on a server.
The most important requirements for the server itself are that it must be sufficiently powerful and fast. It provides access to the digital bookshelves in the library and must therefore be able to handle a lot of traffic.

DAISY app  

Your customized/branded app 

The app is completely designed in your desired look-and-feel. In addition, we review together which different features are or are not offered to your customers. For example bookmarks, audio notes or TTS (text-to-speech) can be provided in the app. The app is developed for both iOS and Android devices.  

  • The look & feel of the reading app (Daisy app) are tailored to your corporate identity or brand
  • Participation in the roadmap for development 
  • Possibility of tailor-made features
  • Tailored to the latest technology, always up-to-date
  • Optimised for voice over, talkback and Braille
  • Built by an experienced team of developers
