DAISY service

What is different about DAISY?

DAISY is a special type of CD which means you can:

  • Change CDs or take a break from reading without losing your place. The player will remember where you stopped in any talking book, even if you eject the CD, and will restart exactly where you left off.

  • Bookmark a section or passage for future reference - perfect for study material or finding a favourite recipe, for example.

  • Skip quickly and easily to the right chapter or phrase in your talking book.

  • Customise the volume and speed on the player to suit you.

What is available in DAISY?

We have a total of over 100 titles which we have grouped into five compilations so you get maximum value and choice. Each compilation uses just one disk for 40 hours of articles.

You can subscribe to as many compilation disks as you like and also to any of our other services of course.

Compilations currently available:

  • Women's Weekly
  • General Interest Weekly
  • Current Affairs Weekly
  • Arts and Entertainment Weekly
  • General Interest Monthly.

They are all outstanding value. Each weekly compilation costs £69 a year (£1.23 a week) and our monthly is only £29 a year. That's £2.41 a month.

What equipment do I need?

You will need a DAISY Player or some DAISY software on your computer. You can find these in our Online shop or you can get in touch with our Technology Support Squad on 0303 123 9999 and they will give you all the help and advice you want.

The Technology Support Squad are a network of volunteers who can call or visit you at home to help you get familiar with your DAISY player and show you how easy it is to use and read all the magazines.

For more, you can also email helpline@rnib.org.uk or complete our online contact form.
