New Zealand Electronic Text Centre now support DAISY format

I found this over on the Daisy Consortium blog:

Nearly all of the publications digitized by the New Zealand Electronic Text Centre are now also available in DAISY format to support the needs of readers with print disabilities.

Thanks to a grant from the Community Partnership Fund, and in collaboration with the Royal New Zealand Foundation for the Blind, the NZETC has generated DAISY books for 1,064 titles in its collection, including a number of required course texts.

To access an e-text in DAISY format, readers can select "DAISY ebook" from the list of "Other Formats" when browsing the NZETC title page. More information is available on the Victoria University of Wellington Library website.

About Nate Hoffelder (11371 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
