DAISY logo

PTX1 Pro supports DAISY 2.02 or ANSI/NISO Z39.86/DAISY3.0. You can play not only DAISY audio books but also text-based DAISY book. Many national library services and content providers publish and distribute DAISY-structure books.

DAISY Online Delivery * protocol

You can get your favorite DAISY books, electronic magazines or newspaper quickly on the DAISY Online Delivery* protocol if your library service applies this protocol on their download service. Both wired and wireless interfaces are furnished on the PTX1 Pro.
* DAISY Online Delivery protocol is a standard initiated by the DAISY Consortium, which can be applied to a download service of a library so that end users will access DAISY books more quickly. PLEXTALK has been a core member of the working group to make the specifications and provided a large number of know-how which were acquired by field trials. Please visit the DAISY Consortium web site (http://www.daisy.org/projects/daisy-online-delivery/) for more information.
