We have tried both eClipse reader and EaseReader. They both are fine.
eClipse reader allows for multiple users to save their profiles,
bookmarks, etc, to somewhat better for a lab situation. Have not looked
into site licenses, since we mostly use for RFBD books, and these require
that special tweak of theirs in order for either of these products to read
RFBD files.

Production of Daisy files is not a simple task and takes time.

However, we have recently implemented Kurzweil License to Go for K3000 for
our LD students and that has had some impact on easing the burden. And...
students love it. We buy they book, remove the binding, run it through
out high speed scanner, saving the chapter files as PDF's. We then use
the Kurzweil Automater to convert these files to .KESI files (run it
overnight), burn a CD, license K3000 to the students laptop, and we are

[Athen] Dolphin's Easy Reader

Hello all,

We have offered the use of Easy Reader this fall to students reading books
in alternate format and so far the response has been quite positive. Now,
we are considering buying a site license for the product but I want to
know if anyone out there has done so...

1. has any campus bought a site license for Easy Reader and if so are
they pleased or not with that decision?

2. has any campus implemented the use of Dolphin's Producer and/or
Publisher products and, if so, have they eased the production of
alternate format on your campus?

Thanks for any input you can provide,
