Count Boston University in on all four categories - or pick one for me.

For playback we use EaseReader mostly but also have access to (and are
experimenting with) CAST eReader, KatiePlayer, and eClipse Reader. I am
in the process of getting a loaner laptop from our Mac Rep so that I can
learn about access on the Mac firsthand.

We also have playback hardware in the form of Victor Reader Classic,
Victor Vibe, and Telex Scholar. I have a couple of blind students that
use personal devices for reading their DAISY books and can get that
information easily.

For production we use Dolphin EasePublisher and Dolphin EaseProducer. We
have a copy of eClipse writer but have not done much with it.

Good morning,

Robert Beach has agreed to lead an evaluation project that is going to
take a look at the current DAISY products, the first round will be
looking at readers. We are wanting to make this as comprehensive an
evaluation as possible and Robert has asked that we develop a team of
four individuals to do the reviews. We need folks to step forward who
have the following, and would be willing to participate in the process:

Person who is Blind

Person with low vision

Person with a learning/cognitive print disability

Person with a mobility disability that requires e-books

It would also help to know what Daisy tools you currently have access
to, so we can reduce the number of products we will need to purchase.

Ron Stewart
