Mac DAISY Reader for Bookshare

I saw the Bookshare folks earlier this evening at a conference that I’m attending in DC, and they delivered good news. By the beginning of the school year, Bookshare will announce not one, but two DAISY Reader options for Mac users. The first is a Mac version of the READ:OutLoud Bookshare Edition that has been in development for some time. The second is DAISY Extension for Firefox, which will allow users to read Bookshare DAISY files in their Firefox browsers.

Not many details were shared, but I was assured that an announcement is forthcoming on their Web site. I’ll continue to follow Bookshare on Twitter so that I don’t miss the notice!
