Hello everybody,

AS most of you know, Ron contacted me last week and asked that I lead a team to review DAISY software players. ATHEN wants to provide a report that can assist folks in selecting appropriate players for the institutions as well as for their own use. Due to the interests in the project, we have decided to include two representatives from each of 4 disability categories: blindness (non-print users), low vision (large print users), learning/cognitive disabilities, and physical disabilities. The project is not tied to any specific institution other than ATHEN and participation is completely voluntary.

Participants will be reviewing 5 different software packages and filling out review sheets on each one. When all five packages have been reviewed, there will be a final form to complete comparing the packages.

If you know somebody who would like to review software DAISY players, please have them fill out the attached application form and return it to me. I need the forms back in my in-box by noon on Wednesday, March 15th. The applications will be reviewed and representatives selected by Friday, March 17th.

If you have any questions, please contact me. If you need more copies of the form, you can get a copy from my website at:
