Very much so. But I already have a DAISY Player, FSReader, hence the subject line. So let's hope they do the magazines I'm interested in DAISY format.

I would also like to think that national talking newspapers will all
eventually be available in daisy format.

This has always seemed to me to be the way to go and it makes even more
sense now that TNAUK is part of RNIB.  many people already have a talking
book player of some kind so why not produce TNAUK and all rnib magazines in
daisy?

It's always going to be difficult to please everyone but Daisy has the
potential to be the most popular and accessible format.

Thanks for this. I will look into this in the future. I was just
interested in having magazines in DAISY format that's all, like Access
I.T., rather than paying out a subscription for talking books which I
may otherwise not listen to. Just my thoughts.

Chris,

A useful starting point would be

Hi where can I find information on what DAISY books RNIB produce? I'm
thinking of taking up reading, including magazines, and thought I
would make the most of my JAWS purchase by using FSReader to read the
DAISY books.
Thanks for any information you might have.

Works fine for me, I often use it to listen to RNIB talking book titles.

You are the second person in the past two days who has told me about
this
problem. I am using the latest build of JAWS 11 with Vista and am not
having

this problem. Both FS and RNIB Daisy books are playing as they should.

Hi Ian,

I saw that but there is no audio being played on my system - just Jaws
speaking the text as I scroll down through it! It's just not behaving
like
a DAISY title at all on my system, just a text reading facility at the
moment.

The audio files are physically present in the appropriate folder but
they
just don't appear to be linking to the FS Reader programme and playing
when
I load the various books.

If I load an audio only DAISY title, again there's no audio output.

Using Jaws 11 (most recent build), Windows XP Home and FS Reader 2.0.

Jamie

Ctrl+p is the play/pause keystroke and ctrl+s is stop.

Hi there,

Previously I've not bothered to try to use FS Reader but would now
like
to
use it more because it claims that, for Jaws 11 onwards, it can play
other
DAISY books beyond the Jaws training materials.

I've been trying to use it and can only list the text of full text
DAISY
titles but can't get any of the audio, either from the Jaws training
materials or from other DAISY books.

Has anyone any magic tips on how to get FS Reader to speak the
recorded
audio? There doesn't even appear to be any controls in the
programme for
controlling the volume and so on.

Perhaps my understanding of what FS Reader is supposed to do is
completely
wrong but I had thought it was supposed to be a fully functioning
DAISY
player for Jaws 11 onwards.

Any thoughts?

Jamie
