DDReader is a free application for reading accessible digital books in DAISY 3.0 format. It is compatible with text-only books, audio only with navigation and full text with audio. The books can be read by synthesized voice, pre-recorded narration or text-only onscreen.
The interface has been designed to meet the needs of the visually impaired with full accessibility, without compromising design for other users.
In this version, the app offers two alternative interfaces:
- Accessible, High-contrast.
- Visual, simple and elegant design.
Both can be used with or without active TalkBack. A layer with six areas of touch allows access to all application commands and navigation of sentences, chapters, and items in the library, index and other lists.
The app features all the functions of its Windows version. It is offered in three languages: Portuguese, Spanish and English. A complete tutorial facilitates the understanding and use of their resources.
