The app to offer online audiobooks to your readers.

Why do you still offer audio books and Daisy publications on CD? 

 

Do you represent an audiobook library and want to offer your readers access to an online bookshelf?

Do you have a nice selection of talking books on CD, but you want to offer them via the Internet too?

Then Sensotec's SensoReader online audiobook server is the solution for your organization.

Offer talking books at low cost

Because we understand that small organizations have limited budgets, Sensotec offers you the option of offering DAISY books to your readers via a shared DODP server and via the SensoReader app.

How does it work?

You use only a part of the SensoReader server in which your audiobooks are managed. These books are not accessible to the other organizations whom you share the server with. This keeps the cost down.

Your readers download the SensoReader app on their smartphone or tablet.

Read below how

this works in detail.

As an organization, you create and manage the users on the SensoReader server.

Thus, the user receives their personal log-in data to log in to your part of the SensoReader server via the app.

 

From then on, your user gets access to the audiobooks you provide on the SensoReader server.

With the SensoReader app you offer all your
audiobooks to your readers at low cost.

What are DAISY books?

DAISY stands for 'Digital Accessible Information System'. It is a worldwide standard for audiobooks for people with reading difficulties: blind or visually impaired people, or people with reading disabilities such as dyslexia.

The advantage of a Daisybook over a regular audiobook is that the reader has a real book experience.

 

He can browse, bookmark, set the reading speed, navigate between chapters,...

For small organizations, with a limited range of audiobooks, Sensotec now offers the option of joining the SensoReader shared DAISY server. This avoids the significant cost of having your own server. 

Combined with the SensoReader app, audiobooks become available to your readers without high cost to your organization.

Daisybooks can be listened to in different ways.

With an audiobook player or DAISY player, or via an app on your smartphone or tablet.

What is the SensoReader server?

This server is a place where audiobooks in DAISY form are collected and offered to readers. Their reading history remains secret.

 

The SensoReader server is a DODP server. This means that it complies with the 'Daisy Online Delivery Protocol' for distributing online books.

Because many users use this server at the same time, it must be powerful and fast.

What is the SensoReader app?

This app is shared by several organizations. As an organization, you use the SensoReader app to offer your audiobooks. Your readers get a personal log-in to access the part of the SensoReader shared server that your organization uses.

 

Unlike a personalized app, the SensoReader app retains its own look and feel. Also, no features specific to your organization can be added. It is a generic app that you use. If you desire a personalized app, click here.

Because you share the app and do not personalize it for your organization, a lot of management and development costs are eliminated. So you can serve your readers at a low cost.

 

The reader sees only your books and not those of another organization. On top, they enjoy all the functionalities of a rock-solid audiobook app.
