Overview: The DAISY Standard seeks to improve the reading experience for people with print disabilities around the globe. In May 1996, the DAISY Consortium was formed to lead the transition from analog to Digital Talking Books through the Digital Accessible Information SYstem, now a widely used assistive technology for reading. The DAISY Consortium now includes over 50 non-profit organizations representing numerous countries, and over 20 for-profit companies which provide products and services to meet the needs of the DAISY community and the people it serves. These organizations and companies work to develop and promote international standards and technologies which enable equal access to information and knowledge by all people with print disabilities.
