Idea Exchange makes reading accessible to everyone.
If you have trouble reading print because of a visual, physical or learning disability, you can use a specialized device called a DAISY Reader. This allows you to listen to books or magazines in the DAISY format (Digital Accessible Information System), which are called DAISY CDs.
Through our partnership with the Centre for Equitable Library Access (CELA), we have a selection of DAISY CDs available at Idea Exchange for quick and convenient borrowing. They are located at the Queen’s Square Library for browsing by request. Titles can also be found in the catalogue by searching “DAISY CD”. They can be placed on hold and borrowed for 6 weeks.
Using the DAISY Reader, you can listen from start to finish just by pressing play or skip between sections, as well as use bookmarks, adjust the narration speed, and look things up in the index.
