A collaborative project to create an open-source electronic book reader that will support various formats including DAISY and epub content
A collaborative project to create an open-source electronic book reader that will support various formats including DAISY and epub content. Currently the software is limited to supporting Daisy 2.02 format 'Talking Books', thankfully there are 100,000's of these books available from various sources, particularly in Europe.
The application requires a minimum of version 1.5 of Android (also known as 'cupcake'). When the application is installed on a device with version 1.6 or later with TalkBack installed, the navigation of files and folders on the sdcard is spoken.
The application can be downloaded from the Downloads section of this project, here http://code.google.com/p/android-daisy-epub-reader/downloads/list
You can use a barcode scanner on your Android device to download the application directly to the phone via a web browser on the device. Scan the following QR barcode to start the download and installation process.
