Membership

The DAISY Consortium exists because of its members and their valuable contributions.

Benefits of Membership

Less than 10% of published information is available in accessible formats. Together, we can drastically improve access to information. We help those who can’t use printed materials because of a visual, physical, perceptual, developmental, cognitive, or learning disability. Individuals with temporary disabilities also benefit from our work.
