Free Webinar: Easy Access to Books and Articles Through a Smart Speaker

The DAISY Consortium has announced the launch of a series of free weekly webinars on accessible publishing and reading in response to the multiple challenges being faced by conferences around the world due to Coronavirus, as well as feedback from the wider DAISY community expressing interest in online training resources.

Nearly a quarter of Americans own at least one voice activated smart speaker, and they are increasingly popular in other countries. How can these easy to use devices with their intelligent assistants help with access to reading books and articles? This webinar will explain the accessibility features of Amazon Echo and Google Assistant, and present case studies of their application for people with print impairments. As well as exploring the technical aspects of configuring such services, we will review user feedback and acceptability of the experiences.
