Darwin Reader is the first accessible Android book reader designed specifically for blind, low vision, and print disabled users. The app fully supports DAISY formatted audio and text books, and directly integrates with Benetech Bookshare and Librivox to make downloading books amazingly simple.

Read books using your preferred interface. For blind and low vision users, the app is completely navigable with the arrow keys. All menus are fully vocalized. Users with dyslexia and other print disabilities can quickly navigate by tapping the stylized graphics on the screen.

During playback, choose between two modes of operation. In the "Eyes-Free" mode, simply swipe your finger across the screen to easily move between sentences and sections. In the graphical mode, all menus are vocalized and include large, graphical elements.

Complete DAISY Support

DAISY is the standard for e-books for blind and print-disabled readers. Navigation with DAISY is easy! You can quickly jump to a specific chapter, book section, or page. Darwin Reader fully supports DAISY 2.02 and DAISY 3.0 formats to read full-text, full-audio, and combined book formats. Just drop your books onto your Android device's SD card and start reading!

Customizable

Darwin Reader presents numerous options to tailor the application to your specific needs. Change the font and background color, text size, font spacing, voice speed, punctuation speech, and much more.

Paragraphs, Sentences, and Words

As the book is read to you, the text is highlighted in a large, colored font. Quickly skip to the next paragraph, sentence, or even a single word. Once you've selected a word, you can find out all about it from Dictionary.com and Wikipedia.org.

Quick Book Search

Explore the vast BookShare library directly on your phone. Use your voice to search for a particular book, or navigate through the many genres.

Instant Downloads

Download books directly to your phone or tablet. You can transfer your DAISY books to your player from your computer, or you can download books directly from within the app by connecting to the Bookshare library. Direct integrations with other content providers are on the road map.

Periodicals
