Pratsam Reader Web
Easy to use DAISY reader web app
Pratsam Reader Web is an accessible digital talking book player customized for use by the visually impaired and those with print disabilities.
The player supports the international DAISY 2.02 standard for accessible media, works with common web browsers and does not require installation. The DAISY player web app is consequently very easy for new users to use.
Users can open the player by clicking on an icon, a link sent by e-mail or on a website. Pratsam Reader Web can also be integrated as a "Listen to the article"-button on a webpage, for instance when the user finds an article on the internet. Because playback is streamed from Pratsam Server, the accessible book or publication can be played immediately once opened.
The player displays text and pictures when the audio is played to the end user. Reader Web shows the current sentence highlited when listening, which makes it easier for some user to assimilate the text.
DAISY player for Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS and Android
The player works in web browsers on all modern computers including Chromebooks. Pratsam Reader Web also works on iOS and Android devices, both phones and tablets. That's why Pratsam Reader Web is an excellent choice if the users might have different platforms and want to use DAISY books on Mac-, Windows- or Linux-computers. The web app synchronizes the users bookmarks automatically between different playback devices and the DAISY Online-service on Pratsam Server.
Pratsam Reader Web is continuously updated to support new web browser versions on all platforms and extensively tested for use with the most common web browsers:
Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge (previously known as Internet Explorer).
